Trying to Forget

26 Jan

Before I left Thailand, I remember people constantly asking me a question that I felt was completely preposterous. I was constantly asked,
“Are you going to keep your blog going even once you get back home?”
I remember like it was just yesterday, and saying right away “Why wouldn’t I?!”
It’s funny sometimes how things tend to change.

Now that I am back in California, I have realized that I did not live up to my promise.
It seems that as my trip began to slowly come to an end, so did my blog.
I slowly posted less and less. I found myself unable to write. Unable to pull out the camera and photograph things that would have previously intrigued me.

I guess for me, this blog in so many ways, is just a reminder

A reminder of all the places I no longer visit.
Of all the people I no longer see.
Of all the sounds I no longer hear.
Of all the things that made my last semester so amazing.

Of the life I am no longer living.

Its easy to forget all that had happened
Somedays I feel like all of the memories have faded away.
Like they are slowly being drawn from my head, while I am least expecting it.
Then I hear something, smell, something, taste something. And I am taken back to my journey. Taken back to the place I call home.
I think of  me and my fellow travelers. The exchange group and how much fun we all had together, and I just smile.
It’s unfortunate that it’s over, but I’m so glad that it happened

I was reminded today how much I miss all my fellow travelers, and more importantly friends from my trip abroad.

Sometimes trying to forget can make you remember.
