Looking towards my future... It's unaffordable property, that's what I'm looking at.
Looking for my will to return to work. Cheers to everyone who made my time in Singapore a blast! I'll be back soon!
On Monday, the 22nd of January, I was involved in a car accident, where I was T-boned at an intersection. I was not at fault. Miraculously, I've come of this only scratched and bruised. I've retained my sense of humour (which has been my coping method of choice), and while my car is not in great shape, that can always be replaced. Lives cannot. Please don't mistake my humour for bravado. It's not. It's simply my attempt to take my mind off the trauma of the event - I still have nightmares every night of the moment of impact, and it will take a lot of time before I can drive again with the same confidence. But I will recover. These mental scars will heal. I want to thank everyone for being an amazing help, and showing your love and support, and from unexpected sources, despite sometimes years of radio silence. I will reply them all soon. You've given me strength my own flesh and blood has not been able to. I also want to thank the strangers who saw someone in need, and decided to act. Alyce, Craig, the mechanics, the paramedics were nothing short of true heroes. As I lay in the side of the road in tears, hysterics and pain, they took care of everything. You were, and always will be, my heroes. Alyce even ended up late for work - but you called the police, the ambulance, my insurance. I could not be more thankful that you chose to pull over and help me. Thank you. Here's the lessons I've learnt over the last 96 hours. Always be vigilant. I have no doubt if I actually went the specified speed limit, I may not have survived. But do not victim blame. Don't tell them "you could've avoided it" - it's too late. Just be there for them. Don't put things off. You may not have the chance later. The best time for anything is now. I've been taught that while the world is dark, the good people within only shine brighter. And without that, I may have given up. But now that I can see the good... It's given me the resolve to pass this light forward to those who need it too. I'm not smiling on the inside yet. But I will be.
