Such a bitter sweet moment as I sit here in my room, bags packed and ready to go. As I reflect on my time here, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Every time I think about my past weeks in Hong Kong, it reminds me of some lyrics by Kid Cudi:
The people I’ve met and the places I’ve been,
are all what make me the man I so proudly am,
But I want to know one thing, when did I become a ghost?
I’m most confused about the world I live in,
To think that I’m lonely well I probably am,
One thing that still gets me,
When did I become a ghost?
I feel as though the experiences I have had in my past and the ones made in Hong Kong have shaped me tremendously and continue to do so. I have molded myself into someone I am quite content with, even though I still have a lot to work on. But as I grow and find myself, I tend to push myself further and further away from others. Whether it is because of opposing views, or just the though of being let down, I have never really managed to make many meaningful relationships.
That being said, I truly like it this way. It makes the relationships I currently have much more significant. So in conclusion? I miss my family and friends back home. Being here made me realize what great people I get to surround myself with on a daily basis.
I am truly going to miss Hong Kong. It is such a great city with an amazing night life. I love the fast paced culture. This concrete jungle is just beautiful. At least I go to school in a city that is alive, can’t complain too much.
Lan Kwai Fong (Downtown Hong Kong - basically the 6th street of HK) was really fun tonight! Everyone was in a great mood and so relaxed! Especially since we finished our final exam this morning. I throughly enjoyed myself.
It was great to come back to my room and talk to my roommate about different cultures and countries. I learned so much about White Americans and she raised many interesting questions about India as well. I want to continue to learn and grow as a person! It is so interesting.
Some people are slowly filing out as I type… I should go say bye! Either way, I don’t have much else to say right now. I feel like once I get back to Houston it will sink in more and then the rants will be much more natural. Well, until then…
