so glad to be back in hawaii! ~ international life ~

i feel so unbelievably relieved and excited. it wasn’t exactly a smooth journey traveling back but now that i’m settled and (BARELY) survived my first day of school, i’m content. 

there’s a sense of sanity that i can only get in hawaii because it’s not guam and it’s not shanghai either. hawaii is my present, and it’s exactly where i belong as of 2014. so that’s where relief falls in. revisiting past “homes” and reuniting with loved ones can be so fun until it gets exhausting. 

yesterday (first day), i landed two hours before my first class, checked in my dorm, and ran off to class. the campus is small enough that i ran into several people i knew, and everyone told me i’m crazy - spending my last two days of summer dodging transfer flights around asia.

but that’s the international life, and i absolutely fucking love it. 

one thing i’d never ever give up is international life, and i can never thank my dad enough for starting and helping me continue my international journey. 

i’m excited about this year because it’s going to be a huge defining year in how the next few years of my life plays out. it’s going to be super stressful and i’ll probably have a ton of breakdowns over school and figuring out my future, but hopefully the outcomes will be satisfying. i want more than anything to continue living abroad in a greater diversity of places.

i’m exhausted, i’m done. summer 2014 needs to be over hahaha

ahhhh, august has been one hell of a crazy, fun month. taiwan and shanghai has been full of great adventures, but i’m really exhausted. i’m forever an introvert… it’s been nice spending endless time with relatives and friends but i just want to hibernate HAHA. since july (aka my guam chapter) ended, i’ve been out every single day, and the past week has been full of consecutive goodbyes for summer 2014. super bittersweet, but i’ll get to see some of them during winter break in just 4-5 months :) i just hate how distance forces all of us to fit so many activities into our limited amount of time together. i mean, i can’t express how awesome reunions are, but right now, i also don’t think anyone understands just how exhausted i am. i’ve basically had no “me time” this entire august yet and i’m someone who really needs my personal space/alone time every once in awhile so yeah, for the millionth time, i’m so exhausted (in a good way though). just a few more days till i’m back in hawaii…..

Queen B & Chuck Bassss

It’s so weird seeing them in real life married/together with other people…. Blair and Chuck were casted so fricken well. They played their characters so well……. ahhhhh!!! favorite tv couple everrrrr.

tbh if they were a real life couple, i highly doubt they would ever have gotten married with all the ridiculous drama they put each other through… but i also wonder how much the ratings of gossip girl would’ve dropped if the writers hadn’t made chuck and blair married in the end.

Still feels weird…

so my high school started school today and it was really weird being woken up by my parents and brother to get ready for school/work and then being able to continue laying in bed because instead of going to school, i have another reunion hangout today with a friend i haven’t seen since graduation… because i graduated…. so im not suppose to be going to school… yeah… still weird ok… yeah lol. i honestly just really need to go back to hawaii right now so that the “present” of my life feels real. whenever i’m here, i just feel like i’ve traveled back to 2009-2013 which is really bad because obviously the things that happen [like reunions and hearing about everyone’s college lives] prove that those years are long over. nostalgia is a real thing in shanghai. it wraps itself around me until i’ve had enough and fly back to hawaii lol (don’t get me wrong, i really really really do love being back and seeing all my friends who still visit this city… but it’s ALWAYS bittersweet because reunions ends in further goodbyes). 

Some days I still see the beautiful city that Shanghai is, and other days, I just see a city in which I’ll never share memories with the same people again #internationallife
