This is the final post ever here. In case you haven’t figured it out I’m done.
I came to this decision based on the number of factors. One I was world-weary of writing. Two I was mildly bored living in Thailand. Three I was doing some dumb shit to alleviate the boredom. If you are wondering, I’m still world-weary of writing. It’s why I haven’t even addressed this until now. The other two have resolved themselves. I found other stuff to do in Thailand and the dumb shit has stopped.
Support Is Important
One of the biggest changes is I barely go into Pattaya anymore. I mainly stay down in my happy little world in Jomtien and have a support system in place around me. It gives me the social interaction I apparently need without all the dumb shit included with it. I’m content and happy. It’s not all about pussy and trying to kill yourself by overindulgence. Not saying that it doesn’t happen, I mainly drink at an Aussie bar so sometimes too much alcohol flows. Plus it helps to have older guys and other expats who have been here and don’t look for the “nightlife” constantly. You just sit and chat and bullshit about life with the occasional ballbusting. The bar is on the beach as well so it’s cool to watch the sunset.
Travel Is Fun
The other thing I do now is to travel around Thailand. I have access to a car. So I like to do day trips or even overnighters and just explore. It gets me out of Pattaya and I get to see parts of Thailand I never have. It’s relaxing and it’s usually just me and a camera and I’m off. The owner of the car is here every two weeks so I make sure it’s back for him and he’s happy someone is actually using it.
There is a lot more to Thailand than just endless pussy as I have discovered.
In The End
I have now been here for 2.5 years. I have seen what the dream can turn into when reality sets in. It’s rather grim and you either get out of your rut, self destruct or go the fuck home. I have seen all 3 and was heading down the self destruct path myself. Instead, I got out of my rut and enjoying living here for the first time in a while.
It’s been fun and I hope I helped some of you see the mongering world for what it really is and not what you think it is. I’m going to leave the site up but I am taking the forums down due to an incompatibility on an upgrade I needed to make to the server.
