Everyone has this life and lifestyle that they want. That they’ve dream about since an early age. Well I guess I’m quite lucky to be pretty close to mine. I’ve always wanted to flat with some friends in a big city, have our own place and care for it altogether. Hang altogether but be able to do whatever I want at the same time. Right now, I have all that. I’m flatting with a Taiwanese guy and a Shanghai guy and being a three-person family like this is kinda nice.
They’re into games and anime as most boys are and have introduced me to some games and anime that I thoroughly enjoy. I love living here I really do. We always game till late and then wake up late like there’s not a care in the world even though there is and everything is just so chill. I can do what I want when I want and there’s no one hassling me, I can completely be my own person.
Being in Auckland as well, there are so many more opportunities and people and I’m loving it here. You can walk out at night to find things still open, people still walking around and a lot of cars still driving around. That’s something I love about big cities, the fact that the city never rests.
For now though, I should really focus on correspondence more. I’m really looking forward to uni next year and making more friends in the meantime and then as well. Rebuilding a life in a different city is hard but my luck has been good so far and hopefully it’ll continue. For now, I’m pretty content where I sit.
I owe a lot of this to Ian, my parents and flatmates. Without my parents I wouldn’t have been able to move up here, without Ian I wouldn’t have been able to find this amazing flat to live in and without my flatmates I wouldn’t be having so much fun.
