Train Travelling.





I had a pretty awesome day yesterday. All my friend and I did was got on a train, go to somewhere far and have lunch there. Then, come home.


To most people, it may sound ridiculous. Why in the world would anyone want to do that? Isn't it just a waste of time, money and energy? I guess, it's up to you.
I enjoyed it and so did my friend.




I always liked trains so doing this was not hard. I have always wanted to just ride a train to somewhere pretty far and remote while just enjoying the journey. That was exactly what I did yesterday. My friend and I picked a random place to go. Then, took the train there.


I like the feeling of not knowing where you are going, not caring where you are going because the destination don't matter. It's the journey that matters or rather the entire experience.


Frankly, sitting in the train was just so calming and serene. We just talked or enjoyed the scenery during entire journey. I could feel my soul at ease. No stress. Just peace. We had all time in the world so we weren't rushing. We were just enjoying the ride.


My friend and I had a little saying made up, "Train travelling is just the way we meditate." It's true though. People talk about inner peace and happiness. That was all I felt during this little journey.


Then, when we reached our destination, we were definitely lost because we didn't know where we were but thing is, it didn't matter because we didn't have a destination in mind anyway.


We were in a small town and we were in a whole different state. I found that town rather cute. It was small and remote with a train station right next to it. It was like something out of a movie so it was completely adorable.






The town is completely different from where I am from. The pace is much slower and relaxed. There's no rush and the town was pretty simple. I loved it. A complete retreat from my crazy stressful life. The little town had a calming effect too, just like the train ride. 


We found a random restaurant and had lunch there. They gave us pretty good portions and the prices was pretty reasonable. After that, we walked back to the train station.


In the train station, we waited for our train but then, we skipped a few trains just because we didn't like the coaches. After all, we had all day and it didn't really matter. In the station, we just talked and talked.


Honestly, the reason why I loved this so much was that I have never felt so peaceful and relaxed my entire life. My soul was just happy. I completely enjoyed it. This little trip rejuvenated and re-energized me.


I will definitely go on more train travelling. Plus, it's just so easy to do. Pick a far destination and just take a train there. It's simply brilliant.

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
WHY?
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.



But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
