it’s getting to be a long time ago

Filed under: — adrian @ 1:16 pm

Some days now I don’t even think about having lived in Taiwan. For weeks, something would remind me, some element of reverse culture shock or talking to someone about what I’ve been up to. But these days, America seems quite a bit more normal and when someone asks what I’ve been up to, I generally talk about the more recent happenings since coming back from Taiwan.

The overwhelming Taiwan-related thought/ feeling these days is that I’ve been itinerant for a long time. I haven’t lived somewhere even semi-permanent since August (and even through June-August I knew my time there was limited) and it’s started to wear on me. In a couple weeks I’ll move into somewhere for at least a year and I’m looking forward to that feeling of permanence.

    I agree, it feels good to “belong” and feel totally at one with one’s surroundings, rather than trying to figure out what is going on. On the other hand, it is just those tough situations that in the end prove to be huge learning experiences….not that they are comfortable. Right now, however, comfortable sounds pretty good to me.
