to SEATTLE! :) I’ve never been but I am excited. I’m doing it in conjunction with a trip to San Francisco (used to live there for a couple of years) so I’m glad to reunite with old friends as well as check out a new city at the same time.

I need to start dreaming small…starting small with smaller steps.
I am going to plan a trip to Yosemite with my good friend Amy soon :) We also have a trip to Tahoe for the upcoming winter (yes we think ahead haha). With another friend from school, we’re hoping to either go to New York, Hawaii, or maybe if I can convince her, the Grand Canyon! :D
Enjoy learning about people?

Warning: Video is highly addicting.
The dorm I selected is mainly international students here! It’s a little intimidating that I’m one of the few who speak fluent English…really weird, LOL. But on the bright side, I get to meet a lot of people and keep in touch with them from all over the world. It’s always refreshing to have that. If anything, I learn more and more about the world.
I’ve met a few Brazilian people here, been hanging out a lot with a couple of them. I’ve been having dinners with a Korean girl. I found a new food buddy, yay! :p I’ve met a girl from the Philippines at school, as well as ones from Indonesia and Taiwan. It’s great. In fact, I think I haven’t actually met actual Californians :p.
I might be able to add South America to my list in a year or two. My dad said he’d go with me after I graduate. :D
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
I love that poem. It’s so popular but I can see why it is. It’s very meaningful to the decisions we make or don’t make, I think. I love it.
I’ve been abroad several times but I’ve never took a domestic flight within the USA. I live in Hawaii and have never visited the mainland/Alaska. laughs
I always figured that because I’m not rich or well-off, I have to prioritize my money and where I spend it. I figure that I can do domestic trips anytime whenever because they’re more affordable and closer so why worry? However, being able to go to Europe or Asia or other places? Much further and more expensive and harder to get people I know to go with me (I seem to have very little friends who have the same passion for traveling as I do). So all the money I saved from my part-time jobs from high school and college…as well as gift money I’ve saved up – all went to trips abroad. :D It always makes people laugh when they find out I’ve been overseas several times but I’ve not set foot (stopovers don’t count) on the mainland.
This will happen. But not right away. I have plans for the next 3 years and well, I’m excited.
I just wish I had more support and where people I care about wouldn’t make me feel so damn guilty.
I’m developing rock fever (or island fever) being stuck here in Hawaii. Don’t get me wrong – it’s lovely here. The most delightful beaches, wonderful food, friendly people, but this is my hometown, not some tropical idealistic paradise. It ain’t paradise for me.
I just want something new. I feel like jetting off to visit Machu Picchu or the Pyramids. Walking in a street market in Thailand or something.
I began this 2 years ago with a short stint in Paris and then 5 months just earlier this year in London. I got to travel around Europe a bit and I just fell more in love with it than ever. I’m still enthralled.
I’ve been to China/HK/Macau several times and I’d like to go back without family next time. I plan to find a job in China so I can get some good work experience as well as learn Mandarin at the same time. So hopefully that’ll enable me a great base to travel from. :)
