Come Summer, my life may take a whole new direction. A new journey waiting to begin, to envelop me with a sense of fulfillment.
I’ll achieve a new sense of fulfillment, but I will be leaving behind the lazy mornings, sunny afternoons, carefree evenings, and spontaneous nights. I will be leaving behind the crop tops, super short skirts, and bikinis. I will be leaving behind the dodgy neighborhood, expensive rent, messy kitchen, and fuss over cooking. I will be leaving behind the hungry mornings, late nights, work stress, and lines on my face. I will be leaving behind friends who have become family.
But I will be taking back five years worth of memories -some good, some bad, and some ugly.
Change is not easy. I am still hesitant in making my decision. I do not want to regret my permanent move back to Thailand. Singapore has given me so much.
The summer will be difficult.
