I don't admit often but I enjoy change.
I am afraid of being trapped in a routine
I shy on getting comfortable in a place.
Now I know why I never open all the boxes in my room
or why I use my mom address as my mail address
why I always refused to make plans that are far away into the future.
Were some people born like that or it is something that comes with life experience?
November 31st will mark 8 years I have been in America
8 years of struggle: learning english, the culture, ways of life,...
Now I can say that I am starting feeling comfortable. I have created a community here.
I know my way around
For a while I forgot the sound of my feet hitting the pavement
The sun burning my skin
I even leave my bedroom door open at night.
However, something always happen around the 7th or 8th year living in a place
7 years in Brazzaville, 8 in America
In 4 weeks, I am leaving for India.
How can one stay alive and sharp in comfort?
I know that deep down I desire security and familiarity
but I also thrive to stay alive and motivated
And change does it for me.
