Granted, I'm 21. I look like I'm 27, and I feel like I'm 16. I've got an absolutely staggering amount of life to live, yet I never want to forget where I came from. It's an incredibly simple sentiment, but I still feel it strongly. And here in Hong Kong, separated from the friends and family that made me who I am today, yet in the presence of the company that will continue to shape me, I'm feeling a lot of emotions. Nostalgia primarily, excitement for the future, and worry that I'll take the time for granted as it goes flying by. I'm already in my fourth year in college. I live in a country that's almost completely foreign to me.
Things are happening. And they're happening quickly.
I'm going to learn a lot about myself in these coming months. My character will be broken down, rebuilt, fortified. It's experience and passion, and both change daily.
I just hope I can catch some glimpses of my stay in Hong Kong as the time goes flying by.
