I'm up at SFU right now, and since I've done my 5 hours worth of studying for today.. I shall blog! Something that has been on my mind lately.. moving out of this city, and living on my own. I personally am okay with the idea of it, but when it really comes down to the details.. I don't know if I would be so willing to leave Vancouver just yet. I will most probably be leaving this city at the end of this year, after I'm done school, for various reasons. One of them being that I need to spend some time back in Singapore with my grandmas. The other? Work purposes. But over the years, I have grown to love Vancouver. (For those of you who don't know, my family decided we needed a change, and we moved to Vancouver even without visiting the place first. It was either Vancouver or Sydney/Melbourne.) I mean, I was raised here for half my life. Is it weird that I don't really know where to call home? Singapore has always been home, because I was born there after all. However, my current home is in Vancouver. My life is here as of now. It really got me thinking about the living arrangements when I move.. My current room, all my winter clothes, my friends and family.. this beautiful city. I feel like I'm leaving so much behind. Not to say that Singapore doesn't have a lot to offer, because in it's own little way, it does. I don't know if I'm giving up too much, or I should be open to something better. Better opportunities? Maybe. I feel like.. I can't really feel at "home" in Singapore until I get a place of my own. Which probably won't be too soon. I don't know if it makes any sense.. but if I were to take over my cousin's room, and make it my own, it wouldn't really be my "own", because that is not my house to begin with. So when I do move out, and have my own place, then I guess I would feel more settled, and I'm able to call it home. Funny side thought: I was more concerned about tackling household problems (pluming, light fixtures, bugs etc.).. than the idea of living alone haha. Like I said, there are certain factors that will make me stay in Vancouver. But as of right now, I'm still pretty half-hearted about the idea of leaving.
