The end is near.. I mean, the end of the year is here. No Christmasy feel yet. Don’t know why.. I felt the Christmas Spirit much earlier on last year, I remember. Maybe that’s because I haven’t been to a mall in ages!! Haven’t really heard Christmas music, seen Christmas scenes, or maybe I’m so preoccupied with preparation for everything else, I’ve forgotten to just sit down, take a look, breathe.. and just feel the Christmas warmth (in the hot sun)
Counting down to the days when I’ll be away.. feels like everybody’s going – one by one.. to every part of the world. My friends to Australia, New Zealand, UK, US.. then me to Scotland. Somehow that excitement feeling has slowly disappeared. That sinking thought that I’ll be gone for a pretty long time, to a land where it’s super cold, where the sun’s alive for only a few hours, where the temperature’s so low you’d freeze almost immediately.. alone. argh. for 6 whole weeks! My consolation for now is Paris and the fact I can return in time for Chinese New Year. (Gosh, I hope I dont put on a bundle of weight when I get there!)
I’m going to miss home, that’s for sure. sigh.
