Despite coming from family of really driven people, I strive to live my life in cruise control. I'd rather enjoy the ride than get to the destination.
Most people would rather hang out with their friends than go to work or class, I'm not unique in this. However, unlike many of my peers, I blow off the former for the latter with little thought to consequence. I always have. I always think that maybe this time I can be different, maybe I've grown up and can be responsible but WHERE IS THE FUN IN THAT?!
I've always lived my life in a pursuit of a good time, having fun, and detouring from anything that could hinder this.
I am not proud of this. Or the fact that the times I am most successful professionally are either 1. I am working on something I think is fun or 2. my personal life is facing some kind of crisis and work is the only refuge available. Maybe I haven't found my true passion yet, but that's a post for another time.
Now that I have a life in Hanoi, I am having serious issues with the fact that I also have a job. It gets in the way of the things I'd rather be doing. Classes that used to be conducted bright eyed and with a PowerPoint are now seen through bleary squints and are lucky if I even know what I am supposed to be teaching. (exaggeration a bit)
I am hoping that one day I become a real adult. That when asked what do I want to do with my life, my honest answer is not, "Have fun"
Anyway, moving on....
