A week of silence after just signing on requires a small explanation.
These past two months I’ve been through a wringer of job hunting, training and starting at a new company, trying to keep my legal visa active, getting information out of a transgender clinic, dental care, apartment hunting, moving and no time to have fun – especially missing out a few friends’ going away parties. And for all that, it’s only the last one that really bothers me, my friends leaving. Living in a foreign country is a transient lifestyle with year long friendships.
I don’t have problems. I have inconveniences, annoyances, irritations and too much to do, but not problems. A problem is being harassed, facing violence, homelessness, poverty, legal proceedings, etc. So for those who have problems, I hear you.
My minor issues are coming to an end having found a new job, apartment and all my visa issues worked out. I’m finally free to enjoy the upcoming LGBT Pride Parade happening October 29th, here in Taipei. I went for the first time last year, this time should be a lot more fun with many more people to go with and a better camera. There will be photos.
