During the summer break, I felt like I was riding a roller coaster. There was nothing out of the ordinary, but I went to ThayarSakan. Before that, I went out with my friends and family. It was the start of the ride where all I felt was joy. I had no worries of “what if something goes wrong?” I stayed over at my grandma’s place most of the summer. My six month-old cousin came from Taiwan and it was actually fun baby-sitting her.
When the time came, I had to go to ThayarSakan. That was the moment I was in the loop. I went there with some of my friends for 4 nights and 5 days.
We had to wake up at 4 A.M. in the morning. Therefore we were very sleepy when we had to meditate. I was so scared; what if the teachers there see me like this. The first and the second day were actually fine. But, on the other days, I was so sleepy, I thought I would fall asleep during the meditation hours.
During the break times, my friends and I would have fun. We watched movies in our room and went out for walks. However, the breaks were only about 30 minutes each.
From time to time, I felt nervous because I thought the teachers might pick me to answer their questions.
However, after the ThayarSakan, nothing interesting happened. I stayed home procrastinating. I wouldn’t sleep even after midnight, therefore, it led to my sleep schedule being a mess. It’s like I couldn’t even tell the difference between day and night.
The moment the school bell rang, my ride jolted. Even with those ups and downs, it was an exciting ride.
One thought on “Fun?”
Nice blog post. I will only pick you to answer questions if you look REALLY awake.
