I've been meaning to write for ages but have been procrastinating clearly. The last time I wrote was before the Christmas holiday and now it is a good week after the Chinese New Year holiday. But, now I'm finally writing!
For the Christmas holiday, I decided to stay in Hong Kong. While a few of my friends and roommates travelled to England, Thailand, and Japan, I stayed and relaxed. It was great to just chill and have some time to myself. I was able to pick up some extra shifts with Crisis Text Line (CTL) as well. Picking up these extra shifts really showed me how the holidays can really affect someone. CTL was busier than usual and every person I talked to said that the holidays were adding extra stress into their lives.
It was nice to pick up some extra shifts during the holidays even though it didn't feel like the holidays at all. My friend Tristina and I spent Christmas together and thought we would be homesick but that wasn't the case at all. There wasn't the same Christmas feel In Hong Kong as there is in the States. It was strange but fortunately, Gabby was able to make it to Hong Kong for New Years.
While Gabby was in Hong Kong, her mom and two sisters were visiting. So, I tagged along and pretended to be a Sheltraw for a couple of days! We went to all the touristy spots such as the different markets and the Big Buddha. It was nice to spend time with a family and people from home.
Just traveling the world and sharing my adventures and experiences.
