early days, a hazy daze.

Do you ever have those days where you start to question the choices you’ve made, the paths you’ve taken? Why on earth are you living in some random alleyway in some eastern city, gazillions of miles from everything you were brought up to know? Those grassy pastures filled with strawberries couldn’t be further away, and yet you CHOSE to come here. I’m sure this feeling is inevitable on every new journey, whether you’ve just moved to a far-flung land, or you’ve moved to the town down the road from the village you grew up in. I’d like to just blame these mixed feelings on last week’s blue moon, but that beauty can’t always be responsible. It’s time I accepted my fate, my sought path. Tomorrow is my first day at National Taiwan Normal University, where I’ll be studying an intensive Chinese course. I’m scared. I’m excited. I’m nervous. I’m confused. But it usually works out just fine, infact I’m sure I’m going to love it. Sometimes life is just a little hazy. I guess we can’t emanate rainbows everyday.

    Well, interestingly, tai wan (as in the rock pic) can also mean too late (太晚) and essentially it’s too late to worry too much about the decision you’ve made now! It’s not so much the decisions we make but how we deal with them that matters.
