I really wish I were back in the US lately. A few reasons why:
1. My Internet keeps cutting out. I mean it happens two or three times a week because of all the construction going on in my area… apparently people in construction keep cutting through random cables.
2. My cell reception is super poor inside the apartment. Come to think of it, my cell reception is more or less poor everywhere I go. There are actual dead spots in popular areas like Ren Ai circle! I just don’t get it!
3. There is no stable hot water in my apartment. And yes I’ve tried messing with the heater tank. It just won’t stay steady. So I basically haven’t been able to take a nice, long shower at home since I’ve moved in here.
4. My parents left the door open this weekend for two hours before I noticed and now the apartment is infested with cockroaches. One literally bit my face tonight. MY FACE. I screamed for about ten minutes before shooing it away. It’s probably making baby cockroaches all over the place right now.
UPSET. Ugh. I know it’s taken me two years to get to here. But maybe these feelings would have better served me, oh, I don’t know, four months ago, before I accepted a 2 - 3 year gig in Taipei. Not cool.
