The first prompt word is regret:
I touched upon this in my previous post: I have some regrets as to how I spend my time. When I was younger, I used to long for summers where I did nothing but lounge around all day. Now, looking back, I feel that my time could have been spent on better things- learning a new language or skill, volunteering my time, or travelling. Although I can’t change my past, I can use it as a learning opportunity. Don’t get me wrong, I still have days where I spend half the day in bed and do nothing but binge watch Netflix, but those days are far and few between. I’m trying to have less regret in my life and push myself out of my comfort zone to experience new things. I guess regret can be a powerful motivator.
The other prompt word that I wanted to write about was home:
As cliche as it sounds, I think that home is a feeling and not a place. I feel at home when I’m surrounded by family, or friends- but on the other hand I also feel at home whenever I’m travelling. The latter sounds strange but for example, whenever I’m at an airport in a foreign destination, I feel a sense of home. The hustle and bustle of travellers makes the airport one of my favourite places to be. Sitting down with a drink and people watching right before I catch a flight is one of my favourite parts of travelling. I’m kind of going off on a tangent here so I’ll try to get back on track. I think home is a place where I feel the most at ease/relaxed, and I guess its why I can feel “at home” even at the airport.
2 short paragraphs for today. I don’t think they were that great, but I have been distracted recently. Since I’m a university student, I’m currently on summer vacation and I’m searching high and low, far and wide for a job. It’s a lot harder than people think it is. But it’s still nice to have a couple of minutes everyday to reflect and de-stress.
Talk to you tomorrow.
