Sh*t Hit the Fan, Or Why I Haven’t Been Blogging

Many of you may have noticed the lack of, ahem, original content in my blog in recent weeks.  I sincerely apologize for this. My only excuse is that my life has been slightly more than chaotic and stressful that I haven’t really been able to string together a proper sentence together, much less an actual post.

Having a bad day

As you have probably read my three-part “Love Story” blog series, I guess I should start by saying that M and I have broken up. Out of respect to M and our relationship, I’ll leave it at that. It’s a sad time for sure, I mean, not only did I break up with a good guy, but I also lost my best friend. I would just like to say that I am doing okay and looking optimistically toward my future adventures, whatever they may be.

For the time being, I’m staying put in Hong Kong while I decide where I want to go next.

This strange place I call home: Hong Kong

This is the exciting part.

Where to go next?!?!?

I don’t think I will staying too long in Hong Kong. I do enjoy this city but I just cannot seem to align myself comfortably here. I find teaching English here less fulfilling than I would like and part of why I left New York City in the first place was to contribute and make a difference in the world. I just don’t feel like I’m doing that in Hong Kong. Or perhaps the reason I left NYC was a little naive? I certainly hope not as I still have every intention to continue trying to help make this world a better place!

I’ve had this conversation with so many people about what it is about Hong Kong that I can’t seem to find my place here, especially when I managed to make myself feel at home just about everywhere else. I really don’t know what is it, except I know that, out of all the places I’ve ever lived or traveled to, I am the least happy here. I’m sorry, Hong Kong. It’s not your fault and it’s not mine, it just wasn’t meant to be.

So back to the exciting part. WHERE TO GO NEXT???

I honestly have no idea, but all those extra pages in my passport are beckoning to be filled, just as my sense of adventure is screaming at me to get back out on the road.

So many passport pages to fill in!

So far, I know that I will be taking a ME trip in the first week of October. Again, to where? I have no clue.

I also bought a flight home to New York City and San Francisco for the month of November. I’ll spend my birthday with my glorious friends in NYC before heading home to San Francisco for Thanksgiving with my family. I’m really looking forward to November because it’s been TWO YEARS since I’ve been back! TWO YEARS!

I’ve got a date with pumpkin pie in November!

I hope that you can forgive me for the lack of interesting travel-related posts in the recent weeks. I promise I’ll get back into it soon!

So, where do YOU suggest I go on my ME trip in October??? What about AFTER Hong Kong???
