Time for you to go out to the places you will be from
This room won't be open till your brothers or your sisters come
So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits
I hope you have found a friend
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end
I hate how every time I'm about to leave I get that nagging feeling that I'm missing something...even if I'm not missing anything.
Leaving the house at 3 PM. Flight leaves at seven.
I was feeling kind of depressed this morning until I realized how sick I am of life in Taiwan.
No more pee tests. No more swimming bald in a pool of kid piss. No more stupid worksheets. No more filial piety. No more restrooms with no toilet paper. No more contaminated water fountains. No more waking up at 6:50 AM. No more wondering when I'll ever have half a second of free time. No more Nazi teachers. No more hysterical parents. No more inept administrators. No more gang violence. No more working my ass off to raise my lousy GPA (hopefully). No more mosquito bites. No more walking to the Fuh Li Suh in the rain. No more lugging scalding hot bian dang up the stairs for the maybe three people who eat them. No more gay pink uniforms. No more crappy English. No more cleanup jobs. No more pining over the same uninterested girls. No more best friends moving to Tajikhistan on the whim of their parents. No more irritating Asian pop music. No more uncomfortable social situations with strangers masquerading as friends. No more scorching summer heat. No more tests or college applications. No more ridiculous mandatory courses. No more repeating myself 20 times to waitresses before they understands my order. No more conformity. No more being abandoned by my friends. No more buses to catch. No more waiting for the end.
No more repetitive, mindless, endless drudgery...no more living the same day, the same routine, over and over and over, for three years.
New start. I hope I don't waste it.
I am typing this from EVA Airlines's VIP lounge.
I love frequent flyer benefits. ^ ^
Oh yeah! Won-Ron is just a few tables away from me. Will wonders never cease.
And I ran into Cassie, Joann, Carlyn, and Jennifer Chu at my last meal at Lao Chen Ji today. That makes Cassie the first and last person I saw in Taiwan.
It began with Cassie and it ended with Cassie.
No wait...I knew Roger and Alex before they came to NEHS. Never mind. :b
