I didn’t realize it at the time, but it was a big part of my preteens, as it was really the only TV show I liked and was able to watch as soon as I got home from school. Between the hour of me returning home from school to the hour of my dad returning home from work, Dawson’s Creek was sort of an escape from reality, my window to how the “real world” worked outside of my strange ugly first generation Asian family culture.
That didn’t take long, did it? I’ve only been here in the UK for five months and already I’m cringing at another drinking event with colleagues or with friends. British drinking culture is truly something else.
I’m saying this because it’s December, and people all around are more festive than ever. There are more drinking events, more parties, more celebrations, etc. I’m slowly getting exhausted by all the social activities.
Almost forgot about this blog again! I’ve been nursing a migraine on-and-off for the past several days, so I’ve had a lot of time to myself with my own thoughts.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, as I try to settle into my new job and my new country. I think now that I’ve gotten a better sense of how things work in this part of the world, I’ve been trying to figure out if I regret moving across the Atlantic Ocean.
Two blog posts in less than a week! This must be some sort of record!
A few London gal pals and I did a day trip to Bristol yesterday, to check out the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. It’s supposed to be the biggest hot air balloon festivals in Europe! We were all looking forward to checking out the hot air balloons because we’ve never really seen one up close, but boy, were we disappointed.
Yes, I realize that it’s been over seven months since my last post on this website. I never forgot about this blog – it’s difficult to forget the fact that you have four years worth of personal journal entries floating around somewhere on the Interwebs – but I just haven’t gotten around to updating the site like I had promised at the beginning of 2017. A lot has happened since then.
It’s happening! It’s really happening! You can hear it in Gareth Wheeler’s voice all the way through this video, where he’s just fanboying all the way through, but we’ve finally done it! After so many years of moaning, groaning, and trying not to wince at 0-3(+) losses, we are finally through the playoffs. I can’t believe it!
I’m going to buy tickets to the playoffs game on November 30th – it’s on a weeknight so that kinda sucks – but the tickets are super expensive, so I’m hoping the price will drop a bit after the crazy hype goes away.
Also, I have some pretty big news for all my blog readers in the coming week. I’m reserving it for a time when I’m mellow and in the mood to write my feelings out. I’ve been in and out of that mood for the whole weekend, so perhaps later this week, after work or something, I’ll tell everyone here. (Although I don’t think anyone even reads this blog, to be completely honest.)
