I’m probably going to change my mind about this soon, but right now, I’m annoyed at goals. Goals are annoying me. Making goals can be really overrated. I don’t know how many times I’ve made goals and just ended up feeling disappointed. Every time I make a goal, I try to think of something reasonable. Like not spending money on anything other than transport for a week. But sometimes, when it rocks around, I can’t […]

It’s 10:52pm, I slept at midnight last night, and it was awfully hard dragging myself out of bed this morning when I kept hitting “snooze” on my alarm. I think I am still jetlagged from my trip to Indonesia. I feel really tired even though Indonesia is only three hours behind… My mum hasn’t been feeling too good lately; I think her typhoid-like condition is getting more serious. She’s been needing to visit the doctor […]

I’m back home – I miss Indonesia a little. Last time it was mostly the people I missed, I got a bit teary on the way back home on the plane.

I have no idea why I was feeling so lethargic yesterday – probably because I got a bit dehydrated. I did make sure I got some water […]

Well, hello. I don’t quite know how to begin this blog post, but I am in Indonesia at the moment and even though the time on my laptop says it’s 2:44am, that’s back-home time, ie. Sydney time, and right now it’s actually three hours behind Sydney time in Jakarta, Indonesia, making it 11:44pm the night before – so it’s still Saturday here.

Of course, I’m confused and mildly jet-lagged. 😆

I’m here with my […]
