Hello, Goodbye, Repeat.

So, how has life been on my first week of this new life?
It’s been pretty great :)

On the first day, I was re-introduced to the operation geologists (yes, all are male). I earned a degree on ‘The Art of Being Newbie and Looked Busy Doing Nothing’, so it was okay. I’m really thankful that I had spent a month in this city before so, at the very least, I know what and how to register myself, and get to the malls (I hate to say this, but I do love malls). Then on the following days, I managed to get my badge, and my rig uniform (red shirts, helmet, safety shoes, etc). Also, I did loads of survival kits shopping: water heater, wireless internet modem, broom and other disinfectant products, and for sure, packs of instant coffee & cereals. For my first weekend; yesterday I bought a bike, so I took myself around and tried my Bike-to-Work route. Other than that, I’ve been spending my time in my crib, watching TV, reading novels, and browsing the internet. Not much different from my usual indoor weekend, so again, it is okay.

Yes, I’m a bit surprised that I don’t suffer from homesick that much.

Or maybe, I’m just already used to be filled with the feeling of missing everyone.

Or maybe, life is just too much like biking: for not falling, you have to keep on moving, forward and don’t look back too much.

Hello, goodbye, repeat.
