I am confident that I know what I want. I am confident in knowing where I want to be and the goals I want to accomplish. Primary goal is to be happy. Obviously money doesn’t grow on trees. And to be honest I dont care. I want a challenge and I want my life back on the west coast. It has been so hard to talk to anyone here about my dilemma because no one understands where I’ve been and my life back home. I want to be skiing in the big mountains, I want to live with my besties & I want to take advantage of the “most beautiful place on earth”. Of course I want nothing more than to be successful and I have no doubt in my mind that the dream job will come to me. I am working really hard at making that happen. I need to be in my west-coast nook with the most wonderful,positive & ambitious people I have ever met. It is a non-stop life of outdoor adventure, encouragement & serious positive vibes. Sure it may be full of a bunch of hippy b-s and say what you will, but it is what it is AND I LOVE IT. I really don’t give two flying fuck’s to live in a city of 22 million or 3 million or 80 thousand. I’m not going to let a concrete jungle define who I am and my life. The life I have created for myself thus far has been nothing but amazing & china has done nothing but make that lifestyle even more concrete in my mind. I cannot wait to go home and visit my family in Ontario and I cannot wait to get to the west coast and continue on building my beautiful life there.
Too many global disasters for one to take in this weekend. Norway…now a train accident here?! I was on one of those trains today coming home from Moganshan. That’s a little freaky. Only heard once I got home & a friend called to make sure we made it home. Yes, safe & sound. Our train was clocking 220km/h, probably won’t be on another one of those anytime soon.
So the last few days have been…rough. Today was finally a better day, thankfully! Regardless how much I try to avoid getting sick here, it still happens. It’s hard to explain the feeling.Those who have been here know it takes some time to “acclimatize” to China. Guess I’m not there yet. The good days are so very amazingly good though. Taking in as much as I can in the next 6 weeks before it’s back to reality.
I’m really excited for the 2nd half of my trip. The adventure to Huangshan is planned and ready to go. Leaving Wednesday morning and I’m sure I’ll have tons of pics to follow!
