My decision

Exactly one year ago, I was all packed up and ready to start a new chapter of my life. There were a million thoughts running through my mind but I had an overwhelming sense of peace about it. I am so glad I picked this path, even though it wasn't an easy decision, it was one that felt right.

So here I am...one year later...I could never imagine experiencing what I've experienced - the good times and the bad, but that has made me the person I am today.

Once again, I'm at crossroads - should I stay in Perth or should I go? Honestly, it wasn't a difficult decision, I think I made up my mind while I was in Vancouver. I wanted to stay but I wasn't sure whether, because since I was there, I would naturally just feeling like staying. I thought to be fair, and give Perth a chance, I'll come back first then decide.

Once I landed and spent a few days at 'home', a place that was suppose to feel familiar and comfortable, felt foreign and different. It wasn't a place that I felt at 'home' anymore. That was when I knew.

I am going to be sad to miss out on all the engagement parties, weddings and baby showers while I'm gone. I really want to be there to celebrate those important moments with people but realistically, its not possible to fly back every time I am invited to something. Otherwise I may as well not leave Perth at all. At the end of the day, I do have my own life to live but I am so thankful to have an awesome support of family and friends in Perth.

It's been a blast since I've been back. I am having so much fun catching up with friends, going back to local hangouts (Yes, I was at Utopia last night) and pretty much enjoying the conveniences of living at home.

Some things never change...

YAY, I still have one month of enjoying this city:
