day 2137 – paris local

fifth and last day in paris, and i’m turning into a local. though i didn’t get a chance to bike to the roland garros stadium, i’ll still be happy i finally got a chance to bike in europe. it was rather scary biking on the road, let alone bike along side parisian drivers that know no rules or etiquette. as the boys and i were biking, we witnessed very intense road rage that saw a man get bumped by a car and proceeded by zooming off. it was an interesting experience using the paris velib because we were scurrying to find a docking station every so often so not to get extra charges. nevertheless, we finished our route and came out alive

day 1342 – fortunate and unfortunate

i consider myself very lucky still eating my brother’s birthday cake with family despite everything that could go wrong is going wrong. if my reaction came any later at the speed it unfolded, i may have been on my way out. as i sit alone at night with thoughts flowing in and out, thinking i may or may not have a legacy to leave behind. i just know i still have a lot untried and unaccomplished, and all my dearest and a ton of regrets i can’t bear to leave behind
