My flight to Hong Kong leaves in six hours. I’m 90% finished packing. My procrastination stemmed from bad habits as well as the stress of packing five months worth of possessions & necessities into two medium-sized suitcases. I didn’t have time to redo my nails, but I did manage to spontaneously finish rewriting the lyrics to a Korean song. I’m absolutely excited about flying again, but I very well might be completely lost when I land at Hong Kong International Airport. I’m going to be alone.
I cut Larry’s hair again, but this time it took an hour. Somehow, the task gets harder every time. Why does his hair insist on forming a mushroom no matter what I do? I only got five hours of sleep the night before, so maybe it’d be nice to have some caffeine. I wish airplanes had outlets so I could edit this music video during the 16 hours of travel. The rest of the family wakes up in 15 minutes; it’s pointless to try to sleep. My room is still a mess.
Can’t focus. I’m leaving for five months! Seems so long, yet so short. I won’t miss mother’s nagging or Larry’s whining or father’s absence. I’m not going to cry, but I feel like I should, though at the same time I feel like there’d be no point. I’m going to miss home and the pink monkey I sleep with every night.
