I used to have many more classmates, more teachers, and larger classrooms. Thalun International School is tiny compared to my former school, Yangon Academy. I am very thankful to my former school for teaching me a life lesson; bigger doesn’t always mean, better. Hahaha. I’m laughing at my old introverted self, lol. HAHAHAHA.
Everyone changes. So do I.
I am glad that I have made a very good decision, moving from YA to Thalun. I believe the younger me was sinking under the society at YA. Here at Thalun, it’s a new place with a new taste, with new people, and altogether the environment creates a new feeling for me. -A new feeling of happiness and relief that I have never felt before. I am no longer the John from back then. Anymore.
Speaking in the simplest way, I have lived a somewhat dark past that I had a lot of trouble overcoming. I do not wish to reveal or bring this past up again. The past shall remain in the past. A lesson I took from this: Pain means weakness.
If anime weren’t to exist in the world, I know that my younger self would not have done anything to distract himself from the “horror.” I… I have found so much beauty in the dark as I have found a lot of horrors in the light. This is also a reason that I sleep (very) late at night. Sometimes, I just won’t fall asleep until about 5 or 6 AM. When that happens, I just simply enjoy the rising sun of the early morning.
The spear of destiny hit me, and will hit you. One shall never know when, or how many times, one will get hit.
