That was really fast.
2012 was really all about polishing humanity morals and some men qualities.
It didn't took me long to realize the bluntness cut of knife being a man. Of course the breakup of a 6-year relationship gave a hand. She was really good, up to the standards and I can't really go backwards. One whose expectations is sky high like me just couldn't settle for something normal or at the same par.
And then I turned around finding me, myself ain't up to that certain standard which I set for the opposite. It felt so ridiculous having 70 points to yourself, go out looking for the 90s.
Been reading like I never had. Sharpening the knife.
My part time jobs were awesome.
The football scout. Football is the biggest thing of all. I wouldn't get myself into a football stadium watching live matches if it wasn't because of this. The green pitch, the supporters, the football, the whole atmosphere for a hell lot of 2 hours is something I look forward to every single day. I get lifted every single time, buzzing from all the excitements, a massive booster to get along for another hectic week ahead.
The UNIQLO staff. It's where I get in touch with how a Japanese company works. The expectations they put on you, the responsibility on the shoulder, the seriousness in things they do, everything was a different experience. Of course I get to brush up my Japanese language too which was really equality important with all of the above.
Yes, I do get tired and wanted a break from everything as badly as you guys out there.
Here comes, Kyoto. Which I decided 12 hours before I step out the door.
Basically it was walk, coffee, walk, and coffee. That's it.
I do enjoying people watching. A LOT. And I do LOVE coffee. So I decided that's all to be done, aside visit temples asking blessing, hot spring and sauna relaxing the body and soul.
Chatted with an Italian couple, at a bar, who are discovering Asia, about Japan and China. Talked to a Finnish, at the guesthouse lounge, who just quit his job and been traveling around with the hope of discovering his passion, about Japan and Finland. Talked to a Malaysian, at the bar, who is becoming a doctor at the end of this year, about Japan and Australia (he studies over there).
I always loved traveling alone. (like the one in Korea) I enjoy the freedom provided to both time and mind. This quick short spontaneous runaway proved to be worth it, and it was just what I needed to get 2013 kick started.
Two things I would like to keep in mind.
1. Giving anything a shot is much more productive than sitting back doing nothing.
2. No pain no gain. (Yes, I like it the hard way.)
2013 would be really good and could be the best yet if I'd these inside my head all the time. Plans are up and it's decision making time. Let's see how far I can run, how high I can jump. Sky is the limit. I just have to keep trying.
Good luck to you too who managed to read this far. *grins*
