East Coast Winter




... Which is not at all wintery compare to Ontario. Sometimes this makes me really wonder what I'm doing in Ottawa. Actually, what I'm doing not living in a warmer place. I guess one can just get up and leave- but it's really not that easy after you have mortgages, and just thinking of packing up everything make me anxious. Heck. even the idea of moving my old couch from my living room, down those annoying winding stairs to my driveway and arrange someone to dispose of it is the main reason why I haven't gotten a new couch.

This weekend I told my dad that I don't mind growing old on my own with a dog. Obviously he tried explaining to me that my life isn't complete without children and a family. Not having someone is not something I'm aiming toward, but I'd rather be alone than feeling trapped with someone just because it's 'society norm' to have a husband, have children, and have a house with a backyard.

Still, I have amazing people in my life. And all the unexpected friendships, family, someone to talk to till wee hours in the morning and not really about anything in particular, saying yes to whatever I want to do and grabbing my bags and travel.

Isn't that enough? Yes. For now it is.
