A recent conversation with my dear cousin sparked a thought in my messy head. He said, "you seem like you're an escapist". Now, i've googled it and it's basically this: a mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation, as an "escape" from the perceived unpleasant or banal aspects of daily life. It can also be used as a term to define the actions people take to help relieve persisting feelings of depression or general sadness. 
I am an escapist.
I've been editing my pictures from my recent trip to bangkok (also hashtagged as #YINGYANGKOK if y'all remember) i've come to realize how true this is. I remember the sole reason for this trip: to escape. My exact words were, "i need to escape, let's go to bangkok" and I was just lucky enough that ellie had been wanting to visit the land of smiles for a long time and a thumbs up from the mama bear could only make me even luckier. "Go and forget everything, come back and start again." she said, that night when i was in her arms, sobbing like a child. I did, and i came back as refreshed as ever with all the memorable bangkok moments tucked into the corners of my heart. Crazy tuktuk rides, roadside meals and most definitely alllllll the shopping! I pull them out for rainy days where life hits me hard in the chest (ow) and i savour every moment where i was free and far away from reality and i guess..... that's how i deal.  i'm I'm pretty lucky to live the life i live and i thank god everyday for the people who have kept pushing me through.
Things have began to feel bumpy recently and i'm trying so desperately to stay afloat. I think,
It's time to leave again.
