Bangkok was amazing. I actually don’t have many photos because the first few days Songkran (Thai New Year) was going on and the last few days there I was being very lazy with my camera. Have no fear; I may be stopping there again (because it was pretty great!) to do some last minute shopping before heading back home or maybe to Europe so I’ll hopefully take more photos.

Elephant Nature Park
(The title is Jan’s version of the saying, ‘bottoms up!’)
March 24th through April 6th have been spent with limited internet connection and it was a relief. It’s a bit sad that I need to have limited wifi to not log on facebook and gmail and everything else but I guess that’s just something I’ll need to work on.
The past two weeks was spent volunteering in two projects with the Elephant Nature Park (ENP) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. ENP is an elephant and animal sanctuary/park for elephants that have been abused in Thailand. Here’s a link to their website: http://www.elephantnaturepark.org – it’s an amazing organization that I highly recommend to everyone – along with spreading the word that people SHOULD seriously do their research and SHOULD NOT be riding on elephants PERIOD.

I’ve been contemplating what this entry would entail since I’ve departed Koh Tao. I say Koh Tao because I had to say a goodbye there and much like that one, I didn’t want to do this one either.
I’ve been toying around with the idea of caring for sometime. I think it’s a normal mechanism especially in this day and age to not care – to have a blasé attitude about anything and everything. It makes it easier. Easier when things fall apart, when you stop talking to someone you might like, or when you realize you might be alone again. To not care means to not feel pain.
It’s definitely the attitude I take when it comes to boys. With daddy issues still present, it’s sort of hard to not think about it the minute I start fancying a guy. I mean what’s the point of caring about someone, significant other or people in general, when you’ll be left alone anyway? Shit happens – people come and go and that’s how it is – a quote I can’t seem to forget, much like the person who said it – but it’s true.
