Kingston’s Journal: Strive for Something Better

An uncomfortable situation forces action.

Living in a hostel again, deja vu from almost 3 months ago. Sharing sleeping quarters, lower hygiene standards, not unpacking were things I particularly didn’t enjoy when living in a hostel for over a month. And now I’m experiencing it all over again. It makes me pine going back to Bangkok where I have my own apartment. I know I said that a young man should never be too comfortable, but I still can’t shake this feeling. 


I want these uncomfortable situations of sleeping on a bus, living in hostels and walking long distances to motivate me to do better so that in the near future, I won’t feel the need to use these measures to conserve funds.
