Perchance it is easiest to be emotional in a time like this. I couldn't help but cry when I said goodbye to P in his apartment last Friday. He's always been in Tokyo (just like how Mr. Big was always a part of New York for Carrie) and he'd be back from Boston by the new year, but it's just not the same without him here. I don't expect anyone to understand but we've experienced enough drama for a year and it's a new start for us both.
And I find myself suddenly so very homesick. There's the magic of the Internet that is supposed to erase the distance that stands between me and my family and friends, but it can't compare to being there in person and talking over a cup of kopi gao. Right now, home just feels too far away.
Please don't worry about me- being here is a personal decision and a dream come true and I look forward to many more adventures in the new year to come! I hope that as each of you look back on the year that passed, you can give thanks for the good and the bad and may your hearts be filled with hope for what's to come!
