If I could only take a year or even half a year off just to wind down and figure out what I want in life, I would. But I’m Asian and things don’t work out that way. I miss being able to hang out with friends and you don’t have to be aware of time or plan crazily like, “Oh I have work” or “I don’t get out until (insert late time here)”. Times when, “let’s go out” and “be there in an hour” that kind of stuff doesn’t apply anymore.
Especially when we were in uni we had so much time to kill in between classes ar after classes it would be so easy to just keep staying together. I miss that. I think I need to live in another city where time isn’t being such a bitch because you have to think of traffic and the amount of time it gets you from point A to point B. Everything has to be thought out and considered from the other party’s point. I’m totally blabbing right now because I too am stuck in traffic with phone in hand typing this blog post.
A working Jakartan spends about 2-4 hours a day in the car just stuck in traffic. That time could be spent on a movie, or a meal with friends. Time is so precious and it’s even more crazier coz it seems like the pace its going right now is crazy fast, hard to keep up.
