Injustice naturally infuriates an ego. This is part of human nature. Emotions are a body's birthright. I don't like it when I hear people say that they shouldn't feel so [insert emotion] about [insert event]. Feel that sh*t and express it in a healthy way! We all have reasons we could feel [insert emotion]. The internal and external worlds in this existence offer many types of experiences. It's whether and how you express emotions not whether you feel them.
I have a lot of stories which is part of the reason I write for the Internets. Emotions process through me as I write. I don't often share these stories with people in my everyday life. The topics rarely manifest in my casual conversations. For instance, I hardly mention to others in-person that I've been fortunate to experience many travels.
I've seen many countries, a few during a trip right after high school graduation. Man, I saved so much money from 16 to 18, and then I bought an around-the-world plane ticket. It was fabulous, and challenging, and scary, and amazing. I spent six months away from my hometown -- four in other countries, and two and in another state.
In Malaysia, I learned how to scuba dive. There's an island named Perhentian Kecil. It's near the border with Thailand. I spent a few weeks on it one July. On the boat en route to the island, I looked down in the water and could see the bottom of the ocean. I met people from all over the world, shared meals and lodging with people I'd just met, watched the moon rise over an expansive sea. There was a walking path between the two sides of the island, and I walked it alone many times, coconut trees overhead. Huge monitor lizards walked freely.
I'd like to travel again one day and meet people from all over the world.
Well hello there.
