I moved to BU12 on Sunday. Been busy with cleaning up and running around getting those little things that I missed out. Parents and sister helped me to move, then they went back to Kepong in the afternoon. They would be back to stay the night in the new house. Seems that mom said that we should stay a night as a family in a new place.
On Sunday evening, I had to do dinner by myself. I was thinking of asking friends out but when I think about all my kakis, all of them are in Kepong, right after the LDP toll! I don't have any friends in PJ! This is so sad. I ended up eating by myself. And that was where I first tasted the loneliness of being independant.
I have never stayed by myself, away from home. During college times, I studied in Setapak and took 2 hours bus from home to college to home. I was never away from home. The longest I was away was during my business trip to Dallas. Back then, I felt the same loneliness but that is expected because I was travelling. And travelling is temporary, right? This "action" of moving and staying by my own, away from home, is going to be for long term! Granted, home is just 12km away but still, the very thought of not having anyone to talk to, not feeling the presence of my parents or sister nearby, is a very new experience.
No, I am not having homesick, nor am I whining - it's just a different experience. I am sure I will get used to this and adjust to this new life but it is a new experience. I am not sad nor do I feel exhilirated (perhaps I was expecting this) over my new found freedom. Or perhaps I am not at that young age when living away from home is a cool thing to do.
And not having Internet connection is not fun at all. It makes me wonder how I survived without Internet, 15 years ago. I guess it was still school days at that time and the evenings are spent on homework.
Upon further analysis, I think being in Dallas is worse simply because it is a strange and new place. There are no friends you can call. And of course no Anne :) In PJ, friends and mamak are just a phone call away... Heh heh..
So, I bet I will live.
I am starting work today. It will be back to my hectic life, minus the house reno thingy.
I really need to get started on the wedding stuff now.
