Can't believe I'm a week away from going back to the UK for my third year of degree.
The prospect of returning back to cold, gloomy UK got me having mixed feelings. I really want to prolong my stay in KL just a little bit longer but at the same time, I kinda miss Bristol. I don't however miss the cold. But when I'm in the UK, I'm essentially living alone so I have to cook for myself, go grocery shopping (or rather, have it conveniently delivered hehe) by myself, walk to uni by myself, it can be quite tiring and lonely, if I'm completely honest with you.
These past 3 months in Malaysia have been so nice and my mum used to always tell me to not always use the word "nice" because it's so common and vague especially with my English essays. "Be more descriptive!" she would say. But Malaysia is just that for me, it's nice. It's warm and it's comfortable and it's familiar and it's home. It's just nice.
Not looking forward to the imminent cold for 5 months straight but liking the idea of not having to sweat under the sun and my make-up melting off my skin.
Not looking forward to having to think of what to have breakfast, lunch and dinner but quite excited to start cooking again.
Not looking forward to walking uphill to university but anxious to start the new academic year with a new kind of semangat.
Not looking forward to living alone but at the same time, can't wait to live alone. Not because I don't miss my family (I do, everyday!) but because Bristol is like my time-out place, I don't know how else to explain it to be honest.
Like I said, mixed feelings.
