I hate to use the word awesome, but it was flippin' AWESOME.
It was the most beautiful day of summer I've had so far -- postcard-perfect scenery, coupled with the warm Australian sun, is the epitome of what every summer should be like.
In all honesty, I felt kind of sad sitting on the beach and looking at the horizon... I think a part of me recognized the fleeting nature of the moment, and how one day all of this is going to end.
One day I will grow up, because we all do - we grow up, get a job, and return to Singapore.
And while I am sure I will immerse myself in an incredibly fulfilling job, I wonder if I will ever live like this again - fearlessly, and with abandon. They say there's nothing quite like one's youth.
I'm not quite sure what to do in these moments of conflicting emotions. I guess what you can do, is to push these thoughts out of your mind, and allow yourself to live in the present.
I never want to let my youth slip by.
