Counting down the days to the day when I was about to head back home was not a good feeling. I was haunted by many things such as physical work (sorting, packing, shipping) and the emotional roller coaster leaving the place I truly love, the place I'd say is my sanctuary. London is my sanctuary.

I had to throw away many stuff of mine when sorting them out because obviously I cannot bring everything home, even then I thought I should've thrown more stuff. But since I am a hoarder, throwing my belongings away is very hard because I get attached to them. Things that have served me for maybe one, two, or even four years straight. So to just abandon them, it was just terrible. Just like leaving London, where a big mark had been signed across my heart since Day 1 I stepped into that city to study.

Speaking of throwing stuff away, I had to throw this bag away too because the both sides of the bottom bit were ripped without me noticing at first. I was heart broken because this bag was love at first sight (as well as my other Cupcake bags). I thought I could fix it if I bring it home, but maybe it was a sign that I shouldn't bring everything that I want or else my shipping boxes can accumulate to 20. So, farewell not only to my Converse, but also my favourite backpack :(

'Til next post!
