The honeymoon stage of a relationship…. How beautiful and naive it is. Although I have been through several relationships, I’m always learning new things in each relationship. But I ALWAYS (I mean ALWAYS) believe that this honey moon stage will last forever. How naive of me.
I am in a new relationship and the honeymoon stage didn’t even last longer than the previous one. I sometimes wonder why. Initially, everything seems so beautiful without burdens. Then come arguments, fights that leave me exhausted both mentally and physically. We fight and we make up.
But sometimes there are things which are not in our control. The external forces which bring the relationship down. Family, friends, work and etc. Nothing I can do about it.
I guess I’m getting a bit worn out….
Hopefully, (fingercrossed) things will work out fine soon….
You make my world upside down
How do you do what you do?
Because my love for you grows each day
I love you like a drowning man loves air
The air that I need, you are
Maybe…you are the one I’m looking for?
I didn’t get to do a lot of things on my 2013 bucket list. So, hopefully I can be realistic with my list for 2014. Here it is!

2. Visit Vietnam
3. Snorkeling at Halong Bay
4. Kayaking at Halong Bay

6. Try street food in Hanoi
7. See a K-pop show
8. Road trip across Myanmar
10. Visit South Korea
11. Beach..beach and beach!!
I have more ideas but I’m not sure I can do everything!
Happy New Year Everyone!!!
It’s been so long that I have logged into my WordPress blog. A lot of things happened in 2013 and I am thankful for everything that I have experienced so far. I graduated in May 2013 and got depressed because I couldn’t find a job in the States. BUT!! I’m back in my home country (Myanmar) and got a dream job! Yay! This 2014 will bring me a lot of good and exciting stuff, I’m sure.
For my new year resolution, I want to travel as much as I can and try new things for the first time! So, my first stop would be Vietnam in April because that’s the only month I can get long holiday. SO…I’m gonna be planning and planning for this trip.
Studying abroad was my dream. It was my way out to explore new country and learn new things. I have always been a curious and ambitious person. When I decided to study abroad, I didn’t think much. Freedom and independence were the only reasons I made that decision. I have to say it was the biggest decision of my life, leaving my family, friends and familiar territory. Sigh. The best decision of my life? Maybe. However, it comes with the price.
Recently, I read a blog talking about living in another country. That blog triggered me to write what I am writing right now. I can connect with author. Before you left your home country, you would think “I will never become _____” In other words, one might think that you won’t act like people in the new country. I once thought that way too. “Oh I will never become like them!” Yes, the joke is on me. I was a fool to think that the new environment won’t influence me in the long term. This is my fourth year studying abroad and I admit I have changed in both good and bad ways. Good things? Being independent. Bad things? I am so not sure about bad things because they are debatable.
I started to ponder about pros and cons of studying abroad. Then, reality hit me. It doesn’t really matter anymore because I have been here for four years and I’m about to graduate. Changes in me occurred long time ago. There is no turning back. The only thing is to move on and become a better person of the person I have changed to.
It’s true that I regret making that decision to study abroad because think about the things I have missed like holidays, birthdays and special occasions with my family and friends. And I don’t know how long I will be staying in this new country and I don’t know how many events I will be missing from my home country. But, it’s life. Life goes on. The world moves on and so should I.
Since I was inspired by someone in order to have a bucket list, here’s my list. I hope I can achieve as much as I can.
2013 Bucket List:
1. Visit a new country
2. Visit a new state in the USA
3.Go on a cruise
4. Work out everyday (!!!)
5. See the “O” show in Vegas
6. See a musical
7. Visit Universal Studio Orlando
9. Attend NBA game
10. See a sunrise
11. Whale Watching
12. Camping in Yosemite Park
14. Buy a car
We (Some) are in a serious relationship and it’s doing good or alright. That doesn’t stop us from having a crush to someone else. We all might be attractive to other people while in a serious relationship.
It might sound familiar to some of you. For example, you love your partner but at the same time you like getting attention from the hot classmate or colleague. Or even your long time (forever) crush that you didn’t get to date.
This topic started with my friend asking me “Have you ever liked someone or had a crush even though you are with someone else?” I instantly knew which way she is going. She’s having this issue of having butterflies over a new (exotic) creature in town. It happens. I also have crushes and it’s kinda fun to have them. You flirt and you like the attention. However, if we are not careful with this, cheating will be at your doorstep. Don’t play with fire unless you are ready to have a new relationship.
Having a crush isn’t wrong but in my opinion, we should not cross the line. Set boundaries.
Wow. I can’t believe I’m in my last year of college. Time flies so quickly. It is great to s back in school although I feel like I have been ripped of by some of the school fees and insurance. Oh well. Can’t complain. I’m pretty positive for this academic year. Yes I will get through all the rough classes. 🙂
