I’m in a weird state of mind right now. But aren’t we all?
It’s been 2.5 years since I last updated this blog, so I’m not sure where to begin. While 2.5 years does seem like a long time (a lot can happen within that period), it also feels like it passed too quickly.
Just a quick round-up of what I did in less than 3 years: I lived in Thailand for a year and a half beginning 2018, first to study in a university grad school program only to drop it right before the trimester started. I did sit the TOEFL exam, placed first, and later on withdrew my admission slot.
Of course, I paid for the examination fee and also attended the orientation. But it was hard to retract my decision. The university that must not be named was overcharging me even after assuring a partial scholarship grant – or maybe I just didn’t know any better. My primary fear was running out of money trying to pay the university from my own pocket. As much as I love adventure, living on the edge in a foreign country with no one but myself to rely on is self-destructive and not my style.
