Every 3 Months
A quarterly report of my mundane existence
3rd quarter Report
“Is there a warranty on this silver lining?”..
In the last instalment, I hashed out the details of how I planned to move to Thailand and it..all..went..wrong.
Even my graduation ceremony was bonkers.
Virtual commencement, my arse.
2020 has been quite the year of disasters.
Moving forward into the month of October, I look back on the last 3 months and it feels strange. Almost like someone’s life I have temporarily occupied. But as I wait for the future to unroll (or unravel?) in front of me, I know whatever happens, I’ll be more at peace once I arrive in Thailand. The States has turned into a roiling mess of ‘non-opportune’ and I want to distance myself as much as possible.
My house there is currently occupied by the kiddos (14 & 17) and my partner. It’s just a matter of the junta government opening the country up for tourists; unlikely to happen in this pre-vaccine world we live in. There’s also the not-so-small matter of employment. My chances have dwindled substantially due to the pandemic and heightened xenophobia in the country.
That’s looking forward.
As for the last 3 months? It’s been me sitting around getting involved in random projects to occupy myself. A lot of Amazon Prime. A lot of reading, getting bored with whatever drivel I’m reading, and watching a movie instead. I also took a short trip to Utah and took some lovely photos. It proved to be just the breath of fresh air I needed.
The last quarter of the year should prove interesting to experience. I hope next time I update, I’ll be home.
