“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” – Not me
Generally speaking, Hanoi has been one of my most epic adventures, with maybe like two regrets. However, with those regrets, come lessons. Don’t trust fuck boys and take a chill pill. Now it’s time to go to the next place, with new epic adventures, successes, fails, lessons, laughs and love.
I love Hanoi, I love my friends here, I love the life I’ve created and all of the amazing things I’ve done and accomplished in this city. Saying I’m proud is an understatement. I came, I saw, I conquered… but now what?
I’m eager for growth, new challenges, and scenery. I crave stimulation and leveling up. I’m feeling the itch to move on, and I know I’d be living in stagnation and complacency if I didn’t do anything about it. So, Goodbye Hanoi!
To those wondering if I have a game plan, job, or place to live once I move, the answer is no. For me, taking leaps of faith is like a cat to catnip. It excites me.
Although I wish I could take parts of Hanoi with me, sometimes you have to give up the good for the great, and take the next step even when you can’t see what comes after. Jump and the net will appear so they say, so I’m jumping… with health insurance just incase. Get ready for me, Saigon!
(For those in Hanoi that are sad or freaking out that I’m leaving, don’t worry, I’ll be around another couple of months!)
