Scared-my legs were giving out/Head spinning/Loosing balance
Exhilarated-back at school-studying English lit and writing
Hopeful-working to get back overseas. I love to visit other cultures and explore their food and drink. Kind of like Andrew Zimmern, without the camera crew.
Heavy-fatter then than now. ate terrible foods. Love to eat sushi (still do). I especially love going to Todai. 150 foot buffet of love. If Heaven could be distilled into a food, it would be renamed Todai.
Alone-I like to be alone so that is ok. I th0ught I found the girl for me, but her parents are tradition Chinese parents and I am anything but tradition.
Content-I began to live a simpler live then and have continued with it. I have become happier with my life and my choices as I have moved through the Space/Time Continuum on this big blue rock.
I have learned a few things along the way. The most important lesson I have learned is to get out of my own way, to stop self-sabotaging my ideas, my goals, my dreams. Life and people in it will do this for you, so why help.
I have learned to plan where and what I want and then work towards the end point. I try to take time to smell the roses and visit family and friends, but more importantly help others traveling along the path.
I have learned to be patient with life and people in it. Not everyone or everything is moving at the same speed, let alone the same direction as I am. Hell, it is the height of hubris to think otherwise.
I have learned to have as much fun as possible, and stay as childlike and un-adultlike as I can. And to F the Fun Police.
