I pulled an all-nighter. Thank you, jet-lag (more like Fuck you, but that’s okay). I headed to McDonald’s at 8 in the morning, because I was craving something HOT to eat, instead of just Cookie Crisps, Frosted Mini Wheats, and Cheez-its. Yeah, so healthy. But anyways, I drove my NISSAN ALTIMA BABYYYYY (but, I really do miss my 2001 Camry). And…headed over to one of the busier joints in the town of Cary-for-dizzle.
I joined the morning crowd—chatted it up with several retirees (all men). It was interesting listening to their conversation. They chatted about politics, the world, their grandkids, everything pretty much. And… I was invited to church—again. Like, do I really seem that religious? I…won’t go into detail about religious experiences.
Sitting at Mickey D’s for the rest of my morning without the retirees, I realized how much I missed the slow-paced life of North Carolinians or, probably I feel like I should say, ‘real’ Americans. I do enjoy the hustle and bustle of big cities, but suddenly Cary reminded me a little bit of Sukhothai. Everything’s calm, smooth, so much leisure time—stare out the window, observing pedestrians, daydreaming about nothing.
I was freaking out today: 1. My CRV won’t start (but, got that fixed in a quick jiffy). 2. My laptop freaked out on me (maybe too much HULU, or…). 3. NO INTERNET (resort back to semi-hell of Sukhothai…but, I realized I’ll get used to it again)
Happiness as of this moment: 1. Figuring out what to eat for dinner (Chinese food, Bojangles, Cook-out, “White-People-Food” (this title entails a LONG explanation for non-Asian people, or people who just don’t understand what the fuck I’m talking about), OR Cup Noodles. 2. I HAVE INTERNET, AKA HULU, and other… illegal websites COUGH, I mean, what? 3. Mom, and James, heading to NC tomorrow.
Sukhothai LAST DAY!!
So, I know I haven’t updated my tumblr in the past few days. It’s been too busy. Let me start off with the day I didn’t feel like updating on. Me and my parents went to Sukhothai Old City, Si Satchanalai (sp?), a local market :) [special request by me], and we ate lunch at the same restaurant Pee-oii took us (the dancing kids one). I was really glad to have seen them, but when they departed yesterday [or techinically two days ago], I still felt at ease. I missed them a tinge, but life went back to normal. I still had a normal day in the office, chilling, doing random things.
Today, or… was it yesterday? I don’t care, 1 hour ago: Today was just pretty much epic. In the morning, I woke up around 7am, to do some last minute packing (I hope I didn’t leave anything behind—but if I did, I really don’t mind going back to Sukhothai). After my packing, I took my camera around and shot pictures of the airport that I haven’t had a chance to do (yes, I know 25 days in Sukhothai, and haven’t taken a picture of the buildings/architecture/objects of the airport). I took pictures of the orchid farms, cassawary (google it :) ), chicken (there’s a ton), water buffalos (and cows I think), the organic farm, the Buddhist shrines, etc, etc, etc. x100. Afterwards, I head to the office (Director’s office) to say bye/hi to Ms. Chutima and Bo. Ms. Chutima left the early morning flight, and I really never got to say goodbye for she was on the phone when I was in the office. Afterwards, I headed towards the operation office, and chilled (MY LAST DAY CHILLING IN THE OFFICE, ON THE INTERNET, DOING BORING TASKS!!!). We all headed to me, and Kyle’s last lunch. SAW PEE-NAAM-PUNG!!! He arrived yesterday from Bangkok. After lunch, got our luggage with Pee-see. After that (haha, I’m not being very precise am I), me and Kyle took pictures with Pee-naan, and Pee-waan. We then headed towards the catering kitchen, because… that really hit ‘home’ (or Sukhothai home). Pee-may was sleeping on the floor, so me and Kyle took turns taking pictures with her. Took pictures with Pee-doi, and Pee-ba. Pee-ba was teary, and sad—bahhhh :(.
We head to the office again to chill, and to wait until our departure/boarding time.
Pee-ba came around 4.30pm (our flight boards at 4.55pm); she handed me and Kyle a bag each—IT WAS STUFFED WITH KAO PAD LAP CHANG (fried rice and sausages), AND COOKIES (FRESHLY BAKED)!!!!!!!!! Oh god, I really going to tear up so bad. We checked in with Pee-see and said our last goodbye to Pee-naan (too bad me and Kyle didn’t see Pee-dick one last time ;) ).
Got on the plane, took pictures with Pee-see, and finally ate the hamburger made by the catering kitchen—shit tasted mad good :). And then, I finished my fried rice as well.
Day 23 Sukhothai The parentals
10.29pm: Today was definitely an epic day.
I woke up around 9.00am to enjoy my cup of frozen yogurt for breakfast, and that Jack N Jill chocolate wafer. Around 9.15am, I hear a truck roll by, and out pops out Joe the Plumber…after how many days he said he would arrive? It’s whatever—I finally get to see him after all the days that went by, he promised to come. We talked a little bit, and his brother Pee-wu was here too. Then we all headed out. Me and Kyle headed to the catering kitchen, and Pee-wu and Joe the Plumber headed to town for a meeting.
Catering Kitchen: I battered pork chops, releasing all my anger on those poor pigs. I read a couple of health food magazines (ironic, I know :) ), and headed to lunch. Lunch was really quiet, without Pee-see, Pee-naan, Pee-oii for sure, and Pee-naam-pung. I ate alone until Kyle strolled by 10 minutes later; I was a little pissed because I wanted some alone time, but it was okay. Ms. Chutima, Pee-bird, Bop, and a newcomer (?) were sitting at the next table; me and Pee-bird exchanged hilarious smiles.
I had Cha-nom-yen (Thai milk tea [cold]) for ‘dessert.’
I headed to the office (after slaving away in the kitchen :) ) for the first time in several days, saw Pee-ket, and Pee-wan, and Pee-dick for a few minutes. I was nervous the wholeeee day in the office, anticipating my parents arrival at 4.45pm (I didn’t even know when the hell they were supposed to arrive).
I headed to the bathroom around 4.30pm, went back to the office, and Kyle asked “Did you see Joe?” “Uh, was I supposed to in the bathroom?” I sprinted towards the arrival area, and saw a beer bellied business man, with a beautiful/elegant old lady staring at me. Oh god, I was fucking happy.
My mommy and daddy gave me gifts to give to the people I worked with; as I handed out the gifts, everyone was so happy—it made me smile a hell of a lot. There was this shrimp thing, this egg thing, and this bean thing ( I KNOW RIGHT? So descriptive). I gave Pee-waan, and Pee-dick a bean thing, and Pee-waan was like “Did you see your mom yet?” “How’d you know my mom?” “You guys look alike!!”
I don’t want to look like my mom—this is definitely for another post. [Don’t interpret wrong if you don’t have any fucking idea what I mean by this]
Joe the Plumber, Pee-wu, Kyle, Parentals, and I headed to my parents hotel (dude, it’s like 5 +1 more star, all the guests are freaking… rich). Parentals and I talked in the room for a little bit, and they asked me how I was doing without any outsider’s presence to discomfort me. It was like in the old days… 20 days ago. The happy thing my mom said to me was, “wow, you look so healthy!” Aka, I may still be fat, and haven’t lost weight…or I have lost weight, but I look healthy doing so :). We’ll see when I reweigh myself back in TW.
We all ate dinner at this resort place; everyone talked, except Pee-wu. God, I feel bad for him. Everyone knew Mandarin but him, so… everyone resorted to the language -____-; it started off in English, to make everyone feel okay…but it just slowly turned in to Mandarin the whole time -_____-. After dinner, we sent the parentals back to the hotel; me and my dad talked politics, my ‘future,’ college life, family, and such, while everyone else went elsewhere—nice bonding experience after a long while. I don’t think I can do this for a while anyways, say perhaps in another year.
Pee-wu, and Joe the Plumber headed to town to find Pee-dang with me and Kyle. Joe the Plumber, Kyle and I headed to the streets to find this egg, banana, crepe like thing, while Pee-wu waited for Pee-dang. That was a good bonding experience between us as well. The funny thing was, this was only the second time that I met Joe, and it was the first time he met Kyle.
And now, I’m back home, courtesy of Pee-dang driving 110km/ph.
I get to go out with my mom and dad tomorrow, because 1. I requested so, 2. I won’t see them for a while, 3. I want to go on vacation with them again, like I did several (5-6) years ago. Except…there’s no James involved in this vacation :(. Fuck, I miss him.
It won’t just be us though, there’s going to be Kyle, Joe, and Pee-wu… it makes me kind of sad, but I’ll know there’ll be other opportunities where it’s just the family hanging out again.
My dad said I’ve matured over the past few days…due to perhaps boredom, and tons of quiet time to think due to this boredom… have I really? Or have I just turned into a boring/impassionate person? I hope I have matured though.
DRANK BEER. And was not once a tiny bit tipsy. Pee-ed a lot. :) Just thought I’d share.
Mature? I think not yet, :).
I wasn’t going to update my tumblr today/tonight because I’m really tired but hey, I do it for myself; I’ve been keeping up with this for 23 days already :)
Countdown: 3 more days to Bangkok baby!!
Day 21 Sukhothai Pee-Wu/7-11 Run
11.00pm: Tomorrow, the parentals are arriving. BAH, I don’t know how I’m going to entertain them!!
[Penises are inconsiderate, selfish, perverted, and disgusting]
Today was a long and semi-productive day. I like getting away from the office scene; I hate staring at a computer screen all day, so I headed to the catering kitchen even without Pee-ann. I bonded with Pee-may this time; we had HUGE communication barriers, but we had fun. We wrote each other’s name out in Thai, and Chinese. I got a lovely phone call while I was there from Joe the Plumber. He’s arriving tomorrow morning—same day as my parents. We’ll see what happens from there…
Pee-wu (Joe’s brother) invited me and Kyle to go eat dinner. We drove to Sukhothai new city (aka Big C Bratha lol), and drove to two similar restaurants. The restaurant we ate at was a Korean type BBQ place, buffet style. Oh dear god, so much food. It was great, fun, and delicious. We all bonded, so that was I think one of the most important part. We made another 7-11 run—I’m sure the clerks recognize my weird ass face by now, actually they have haha.
I’m going to stay in the office all day tomorrow to prepare for 3 people’s arrival, whoo-hoo. Well, the good thing is that I may be able to talk to Pee-bird (the office guy!!) and practice some English with him.
I went out for a night-time bike run. The only thing I had was my bike, my bike’s mini headlight, the moonlight, and pitch black. The power went out halfway through my night-run. It was great—burned off the buffet I had as well. Well, not so funny, but amusing at the same time, my bike suddenly had a flat tire (I realized this after I just got on the runway), so I went to the office to switch a bike. It took me like 10 fucking minutes, because 1. it was dark, 2. I had to find a bike that was my height, 3. I had to see if the headlight worked on any of the bikes. So, this security guard flashes his light, and I was like “ohhhhh, shit. I’m done for.” But, he recognized me, and helped me out. Communication barrier= sign/body language=amazing.
Count down: 4 more days till Bangkok baby!!!!
Day 21 Sukhothai Semi-Sorrow; Happiness
9.40pm: A day of
semi-sorrow, and happiness.
Pee-ann and Pee-oii left me. Last few minutes together with Pee-ann, she kept assuaging me with “Mai ben rai,”—it’s okayyyy. Oh my god, thank god I didn’t tear up. I miss her already. And, I’m fucking pissed I didn’t say good-bye to Pee-oii; maybe that’s a good thing, or I really would’ve just burst in tears. NO WORRIES. I’ll be in Bangkok in 5 days, and see them there. Right? I’m going to be alright :).
Today was super productive. I went to the catering kitchen to help out, because they really needed an extra hand. Everyone today was preparing for a big event of Sukhothai, held/promoted/sponsored by Bangkok Airways. The festival was called “Mini Light and Sounds of Sukhothai.” It used to be a yearly event, that only occurred during a day in November, but now it’s a monthly event. Tickets usually cost 600baht a person during the month, but free for staff. Today, the people we invited were badminton players; some badminton coaches; and some renowned people I wouldn’t have any idea about (but, you can tell who they are from people saying ‘sawatdee (ka, krub),’ and what they’re wearing, and what purses they’re holding).
Anyways, I’ll talk about the festival later. I helped out in the kitchen. ATE JACKFRUIT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!!! The smell smelled so bad to me, a LOT worse than durian (of course I would say that, I love durian’s everything), but it tastes really delicious. I made pork burgers again, and I’m becoming an expert :). I watched Pee-ba(p) boil the dough we made yesterday—it came out translucent, and very very beautiful (sway jin jin). I also cut pork chops today for the burgers. I had ‘pit-sat-nu-lok,’ this Thai noodle dish that Pee-ba(p) made for me. I love her too :); she let’s me do everything even though we all know I may cut myself sooner or later :). She prepared dessert, with the dough we boiled, this fruit type thing covered in flour, jackfruit, corn (oh yeah, I had to make separate pieces of that), jello, and coconut milk. The surprise ingredient I found that she added to this dessert was salt. O_o, who would’ve known?
I finally met Pee-wu today, Joe the Plumber’s brother. He looks like Joe, except darker skin, and chubbier, and with braces. That was a short encounter that later turned into a night of just me, him, and Kyle.
I don’t want to go into detail about saying bye to Pee-ann, but I had to go back to see her again, because 1. I forgot my Swatch, 2. I forgot my cardigan (yes, preppy, I know). In a rush, Pee-ann, while on the phone, scribbled down her email address, and phone number, cell and home(funny thing: she didn’t know her home number and had to look it up on her cell phone -____-). I think she was about to tear up if I didn’t leave for another 10 minutes.
Pee-dang (the director of pretty much everything of Sukhothai airport) picked me and Kyle up. We sat in a car with another prominent woman, who was…the head of the tourist association of Sukhothai (I have no fucking idea; just VIP). We arrived in Sukhothai’s new city to chill in the (only governmental [?]) tourist information office. Then we all hopped in Pee-dang’s Gold Honda CR-V (represent, represent!!), to head to Sukhothai Old City (historical). We got there early because though we’re considered ‘VIP,’ we still helped out. I FINALLY HAVE TONS OF PICTURES TO SHOW EVIDENCE. I helped make this crepe thing actually made out of sticky rice pressed flatly. I TRIED/ATTEMPTED to help stir-fry Padthai. I had A LOT to eat tonight, oh dear, how the hell am I supposed to lose weight in Thailand? It’s near… fucking impossible. Anyways, Pee-wu told me and Kyle to greet the incoming guests. Cheng chim: please eat. Cheng nang: please sit. And, the all-around phrase: sawatdee (ka, krub). Me and Kyle noticed that the younger generation didn’t really show respect, or they didn’t really greet you back with sawatdee; the older generation however (at least over 20) did it back so generously even if some of them were VIP—it was semi-culture shock for me and Kyle. I guess youngsters these days are REALLY apathetic to pretty much anything. Then, me and Kyle concluded that maybe they’re egotistical fucking asshole-like badminton players; though, there were some nice guys (and girls) too.
God, some kids were so hot. But, me and Kyle asked Pee-wu around how old they were so we wouldn’t seem like pedophiles; they were in secondary school (?), which I think it would be the last year before they head into college; oh god, so young -_____-.
Oh fuck. I forgot this guy’s name who works in the office with Ms. Chutima (Pee-poo)… I know he wants to practice English with me so bad, and I’m so willing to help, but it’s so awkward for me because I always want to say Pee-something haha.
After much greeting, eating, drinking (lemongrass water, and bale fruit water, no alcohol—THANK GOD), introduction of me and Kyle for being foreigners, the real show was about to start. Everyone headed to this ruined area, where a Buddha is still on display within this mini temple (kind of hard to explain without photos). There was a broadcaster telling us the story/history of Sukhothai (it is the first city of Thailand, nice fact). Of course me and Kyle just took pictures and weren’t really listening, knowing that we have no Thai experience at all -____-. The girls were so beautiful, and the guys were very handsome. We took photos with them later. Pee-wu was like “debbie!! Go take photo!” I was like “I’LL BE EVEN MORE UGLY WHEN I TAKE A PICTURE WITH THEM!!!” But, I did it anyways :).
It was nice night, though, parts of the time I was thinking, ‘if Pee-oii was here, she’d make everything hilarious with no reason.’
10.04pm: No one-Alicia Keys
I had a long talk with Pee-ann yesterday when we just chilled until 5.30pm came around. I don’t know if I mentioned this yesterday. But, we talked about pretty much a lot of things. I told her about my drama in easy terms; she understood everything which made me happy, and I had a sigh of relief. I know a lot of people have told me this, but she said "Debbie, it’s okay. Move on. You have your future ahead of you. Don’t look back." Just coming from her, she’s considered an outsider; she doesn’t know anyone inside my drama circle; she’s simple, she’s kind, she’s mature. I really took that advice to heart, FINALLY. Move on, what’s the point. I’ll meet new people in the future; I have a long life ahead of me (I hope so at least)—wait, is that a good or bad thing first of all? :). Oh fuck, I miss her. :(
Day 20 Sukhothai 7-11 run
9.28pm: Just got back from a late dinner, and a 7-11 trip. Bought 4 yogurt thingies, put it in the freezer, and 2 Jack N Jill branded chocolate wafer type things.
Today, I was in the catering kitchen all day, from 9am, to 5.30pm. Oh, god. I did a lot of things in there today. 1. I…what the hell did I do? Haha. I made hamburgers for the passengers, 2. I cut dough for this Thai dessert that will be boiled tomorrow and put in coconut milk, 3. I made cake :), 4. I made a cake roll of that cake I made, 5. cleaned up the kitchen, 6. I really don’t know what else I did. Just a busy busy day :)
Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to the catering kitchen today, because they need an extra hand :), and I’m so glad I can help around.
Joe the Plumber’s brother came by today, wanting to see me, but as soon as I got to the office, he left with Pee-dang to go to this meeting thing. -______-, Joe’s family are all “go-with-the-flow” type, I’m assuming.
It was around 6.30pm when Pee-oii drived around to ask if me and Kyle wanted to go out. [Oh my fucking god, I can’t believe Pee-oii and Pee-ann are leaving to Bangkok tomorrow; I really don’t think I can handle it. But, I’ll be seeing them there, so… just 7 more days] We went out to this restaurant in town. Pee-oii needed a parking spot under some covers (it was POURING, hence ‘rainy season’), so Pee-ann got out of the car, and asked a DVD store’s owner to borrow their spot, which was a few shops away from the restaurant. Pee-oii…got stuck again. We were reliving the “under the stars” moment. But, the owner of the restaurant came to the rescue.
We all joked about how this is the second time Pee-oii has ended up in this situation, and how it only occurs with me and Kyle in the car. We’re bad luck I suppose :). The restaurant was pretty nice, with a ton of mosquitoes (as usual I think). We ordered steak, prawns, french fries, a Thai dish, and a salad (all separate plates). It was very delish. And, I paid the bill—I FINALLY SNUCK A CHANCE TO PAY. What I did was, slid towards the back to the owner, and showed him my wallet and pointed to myself. It was all good from there :). AND, WTF. IT WAS ONLY 350 BAHT!!!! I… I shitted in my pants. Wtf, 350Baht= approx $10US, for a huge ass plate of STUFF. 5 plates worth. Omg, I was like wtf…..
ANYWAYS, we then headed to 7-11, made our nightly run (it’s like my typical Asia Café midnight run), and the clerks said I was “narak” apparently. It made me smile :)
And, now I’m back in my condo, enjoying some T.V. I haven’t been online all day, and I’ll be online for only a few minutes to check my email, and update my tumblr :).
Day 19 Sukhothai Procrastination at Best
8.36pm: Only a week left till Bangkok. I’m excited. Nothing really exciting happened today, and I don’t feel like typing all that much. Wow, I’m getting lazy.
My parents are coming in… 4 days. Joe the Plumber is coming in 3 days. Bangkok in 8 days. Yo, I’m so excited about going to Bangkok.
To do list:
- Nightlife = clubs, bars, maybe a gay bar, strip club for gays, strip club for straights
- Daytime Scenery= temples, cultural events, etc.
- Beach = !!!
- Food = duh. Or, more like, bird’s nest galore perhaps.
- Shopping = a must. Bargaining as well.
- Chilling with people = :)
I definitely need to do more research. I’ll have 5 days in Bangkok; we’ll see where the glories of the internet takes me these next few days for research.
8.40pm: Heartbreak Warfare- John Mayer.
I’m debating whether or not to write an abstract paragraph right now… I have time, tons of time.
Day 18 Sukhothai INCOMPETENCE
5.59pm: this was my most stressful day ever, in Sukhothai. So I’m supposed to be going to Bangkok tomorrow, on the early morning flight. Oh my god, I don’t want to go into detail. It was a lot to handle. A lot of incompetent penises played parts of the reason why :) haha, jk. It just involved a lot of incompetent people, and I, alone, by myself, just couldn’t carry the burden/stress that was involved. CONCLUSION: I won’t be going to Bangkok tomorrow through the 21st. I’ve decided to go the end of the month, BY MYSELF (and Kyle). I really just want to go like BY MYSELF, without penises involved. NONE. NONEEEEEEEEE.
It was my day off, woke up at 9am, lazed around my bed for an hour. I was about to head to breakfast when I found a surprise hanging on my door :). Pee-oii headed to town to give monks food. But, I totally forgot she was going today, and I failed to wake up at 5.30am :(. But she left the sticky rice thing with grilled pork. Despite a lot of ants surrounding the treat, I happily devoured the inside untouched by the ants.
I headed immediately to the office after I checked my email at home. And, that’s where the stress started. I won’t go into detail, because I don’t want to think about it. This has caused a dent in my laid-back lifestyle I’ve been so used to for the past 18 days.
Anyways, it was Pee-oii’s day off, and she asked if I wanted to go to Phitsanulok, and I happily said yes. She was taking pictures of a rival airline’s advertisement on the street (Phitsanulok airport to the old Bangkok airport for a cheaper price), for her boss. She calmed me down significantly, and the whole trip, I totally forgot what was stressing me so much. “Don’t worry, don’t think about it. It’s not your fault.” I’m so glad I’m here in Thailand with great people.
She talked about her experience in France, and I love hearing people’s stories when they’re abroad. I was so amused, and interested in what she had to say, and I’m really happy that she had fun while interning there for 4 months.
I called my parents: that was totally unfuckingsuccessful :(.
OMG, seriously. I HAVE TO HATE ON PENISES RIGHT NOW. GOD DAMN IT. SO INCOMPETENT, AND FLACCID AT THAT. AGHHHHHHHHHH.
10.18pm: Pee-ann and Pee-oii left my condo about an hour ago. We talked about our tentative plans for meeting up in Bangkok from the 26th-30th (when I sadly leave). I’m going to start crying the 20th, when Pee-ann and Pee-oii head to Bangkok then. I’m tearing up just a little. I’m so glad to have met them. It was a rough experience in the beginning, but with such amazing people, it beats any bad experience. I think we’ll all have a long lasting relationship. I hope so at least. Yes, my previous posts seem to contradict my hope, but I can still hope, right? I really value their friendship. The reason why I think these relationships I have made in the past month will last, is because 1. They’re different from the ‘people back home.’ 2. They have great personalities, and don’t judge (or at least they don’t tell you, and are extremely good at hiding it :) ) 3. They have a laid-back life, they have an “I don’t care” attitude when it comes to materialism, superficiality, and idiocy. 4. I would do anything for them, because they have done everything they can to make me feel comfortable, safe, and not bored here. I think, or at least I hope (do you see how much confidence I have lost in friendships? It’s really my fault that I let this happen…) they value my friendship because they just like ME, nothing else. They’re not trying to use me; they’re not basing our friendship superficially, but they start deep. I know I won’t do anything to hurt them; what is there I could do to possibly hurt them even a tiny bit? Nothing. I really feel like I won’t hurt them at all. And, they’re “Deborah-mistake-prone” proof. Understand? I wish other people I knew could find amazing friends like these, so they’ll understand what true friendship is. It’s not about… I won’t go into detail.
Day 17 Sukhothai, keepin’ it real
8.30pm: I’m a little stressed out over nothing. :/
Today, I went to the catering kitchen and helped out Pee-ann by making some pork burgers (haha, this reminds me of a childhood story that I shall tell one day on tumblr). Then headed back over the office to catch up on some news; afterwards I headed to lunch, ate with Pee-naam-pung, and Pee-see, such cutie-pies [as you can see, I’m keeping this post kind of brief because, 1. I’m really stressed out, 2. I don’t know why I’m stressing, 3. I’m really tired over nothing].
After lunch, Pee-naam-pung asked if we wanted to go out of the airport, and we gladly agreed to. We headed to a rice mill—there was an old/handmade/outdated machine for the rice process, and towards the back there was this humongous new monster of a machine. It was pretty cool, pictures from Kyle later. Pee-naam-pung later took me and Kyle to Sukhothai Buddha Park; it was filled with glorious gold, beautiful architecture, and, yes, I forgot my camera (yes, I’m really pissed, just as pissed as you are), but no worries, I plan on going back with my camera this time.
Went on the runway again for a 6km bike ride this time. Note to self, and others: riding against wind going 5mph is as hard as going up a steep hill.
Yes, I am semi-stressed: Joe the Plumber will be arriving tomorrow in Bangkok, and he plans on me and Kyle meeting up with him on Sunday, aka in 2 days. 1. I haven’t bought tickets [and tickets will be pricey since the flight’s only 2 days away], 2. I don’t know where the hell am I living [if I live in a hotel, the price can be very jacked up], 3. I don’t know if Joe is competent in making decisions. :/ He’s a kind of ‘go-with-the-flow’ type of guy; sometimes that’s good, but… when it comes to important decisions, and handling people’s lives, it’s kind of important to be steady as rock, right? Or, is it just me? So, he sent me an email telling me wishy-washy details…and I don’t exactly have any idea wtf he wrote in that email—so I asked a bunch of questions in return. Let’s hope he returns my email tonight :/ I don’t think I’ve ever been so stressed out over a 4 day vacation. What The Shitty Fuck.
Did laundry; I miss my own washing machines :(.
I cried while biking on the runway today. These memories kept flashing by me… I think I had a epiphany-gone-wrong. All these memories were actually horrible; all the memories went semi-chronologically, I thought I was dying for a second because of these memories flashing in front of my eyes. I cried for at least… perhaps, 3km of my trip (?)
