After having my flight cancelled and waiting for about three hours to get onto a standby flight, I am finally in Newark, which means that I am just an hour away from NEW YORK CITY!!!

Yaay! I am just so glad that I am here. I hope to go to and see the places that I have always wanted to in the next few days.

Gotta sleep now after the very, very, very, very, very long day. Nitey night!

OKC Finale

Another update, probably my last in Oklahoma. I think I am going to miss this place. I know there have been some unpleasantness and sadness in this place, but I am going to remember this place for some of the better memories that it left me.

For one, I am going to miss the bus driver that took us around, Donnie. He is a great man who loves his family and works hard to provide for them. I will miss listening to his stories and him telling each and everyone of us that we are the best in the mornings.

There are just so many things that happened here, it is difficult to just single out and explain each and every experience. But I think something that I will never forget is the night he stood with me on the sidewalk out in the cold, because I couldn't seemed to bring myself to go back to my room. Although I have made up my mind and is trying my best to get over him, so, certain memories will never be forgotten, I guess.

And I am really glad for each and every moment of happiness I have experienced because of him in the past few months. For now, friendship is just enough.

A Happier Update

It's the third and last week of my lessons in OKC, which means that my stay in US is almost half over. I will be home soon in another three weeks time.

I am feeling so much better now. Though not before an exciting episode of being sent to the hospital after coming down with a severe stomachache and stomach flu. Not sure what to do, and worried about me, my friends called for an ambulance. I have to say that the medical care in US, or at least in OKC, really disappointed me. I had to wait for a long time, before a doctor came to look at me, both times I went back, and even the nurses seems really uncaring and just go about in their robotic routines. And because I had to be on IV twice, I have big bruises on both arms, because of the rough way they did it. Nothing compared to Singapore. And the hospital I went to is supposedly one of the best in the city. Sigh.

And although it's supposed to be common in US, but they injected me with morphine! The moment the morphine was injected, HIGH! I can just feel my vision, going all the way upwards. Not sure if that is the best way to describe the feeling. But the most HIGH thing should be the bill that I am now saddled with, USD 1700!!! Not high also cannot already. I do have travel insurance, but it seem like the hospital is not even sure how I can go about getting the claim.

Anyway, I am slowly adapting to the weather, which is good. I can eat better now, and I am not so scared of the cold, which is funny, considering that the weather is really getting cold now. Oh yeah, and there was a big ice storm the past couple of days, and my hotel lost its power because of that. Try sleeping in a room, in winter, without any heating device. All I can say is that the feeling is JIN HIGH!

Oh well, I one more week in OKC, before Las Vegas. SIN CITY! HERE I COME!!!

Crying seems to be a favourite activity this trip. I think I've shed more tears since I'v reached US than the past five years combined. Being in a cold and foreign is taking its toil on me. And I just can't seem to stop the tear ducts. I seem to cry over the littlest of reasons, away the eyes from my friends and classmates, of course.

I am done with this place. I really, really just want to go home. BUt the thought of finally being able to visit Las Vegas and New York, the two states that I have always wanted to go, are two bright spots of light for me. Hopefully, I will feel much better once I am done with lessons.

TV Production is really interesting. I really had fun learning the ropes of working in a TV studio. It has given me some new ideas in the evaluating of my choices for the future. I really want to get into a job that can get me on my toes everyday, and make me feel challenged and interested every step of the way. And right now, TV production seems like a good choice.

Not sure. I need to seriously contemplate this. After I get out of the farking cold, dammit!

Is this really the end? When will I be able to give up? I am really done with this. But the tears just can't stop flowing when I think of letting go. - Hensen Moer
