My First House XDD

My little house huhu

Soooooo excited to share that I have finally entered my first little house yesterday in Viet Nam XD. Finished the purchase like a week ago, but had to wait another 7 days to fly back there from the US lol. My gosh... even now I can't use words to describe how hype I felt when I was waiting ~19 hours on the planes, just thinking of the fact that I'm now able to have my own life makes me almost feel like wanting to jump off the aircraft [if I'm superman, I literally had done that].

Well... but ye, to be very honest, it's just a small apartment home, around ~$60k, so I could not say this is one first big success in my life. It's just the feelings that come with it makes me feel like I'm stepping into a new chapter in the book that destiny wrote for me ~24 years ago. 

I came to the US when I was 19, so it's almost 5 years ago, well things were great, the scenery is nice, people are very open-minded, I also got my first job as a private tutor shortly after I arrived. But, ye, somehow I felt like I just miss Viet Nam so much [even the country sucks ball], maybe 19 years living there had created a significant impression of everything in that little country deep inside me, something that could not be forgotten easily. Don't get me wrong, the US is definitely a better place, it's just that y know, some people just want to live somewhere else.

Ayyy hi bois

So... when I first made a few money out of doing freelance commission work on dA, I have thought about moving back to Viet. But ye, of course I could not move back there and live in hotels 24/7, or staying in relatives' houses. So it's kinda just a thought ~2 years ago. Yet last year on my stay in Viet, I met someone, lemme address that person as "K" in this journal. So, apparently as you may have guessed, I had some sort of one-side relationship going on with K. Needless to say, the outcome of the relationship ended swiftly as soon as K realizes the various differences between us, from personality to social things. But, even though it ended like most of my 2 cents love stories in the past (yea I'm not that lucky when it comes to love lmao), K left a very significant impression in me, something that urges me to work harder. Of course as much as I want to say I work that hard to try to buy a house in Viet is because of K, I cannot say that was everything. what it actually was is that the time with K gave me a clear vision of what I want to do with my life, it helped me made up my mind, convincing me that this worth a try.

One of the bedrooms, nothing here yet lol

And so I did, 7 months of constant working-my-ass-off, I gathered enough cash to acquire the house (yes we call apartment "houses" in Vietnam - something similar to mobile home in the US I guess, since they're equivalent in prices in Viet, heck some apartment is even more expensive than normal houses). 

While I'm not sure what K will think of this, yes I think about K a lot in the past year if anyone's wondering, I just want to say to myself that I did an OK job by finishing what I promised K. Yea... and even that promise is one-sided, I wouldn't be surprised if K has forgotten who the hell I'm now lmao. Not trying to play the victim here, though, I'm by no mean a good and kind person - K is, I'm ruthless, greedy, and my thirst for power and fortune is beyond boundaries. So.. well, maybe it's best to let memories be memories. God, I'm telling ya typing the previous sentence hurts. 

Someone used to tell me that "guys like you can only achieve small success, not the big ones, ever." - well, I think I can agree with that somehow, since I have never felt satisfied about any of my achievement anyway. There's always one more thing to chase at the end of the day, it's never gonna stop - the greed of mankind. 

Soooo sorry for the drama lmao, I just want to share this moment with you guys- since apparently without DeviantArt and the awesome people here, I wouldn't have this day ^v^. I can't thank you enough for all the supports, comments, and favorites you gave me huhu, and I'm sorry that I have not been so active in replying to comments lately, just too much works here and there, but deep in my heart, I really really appreciate those ;v;b. 

Cheers XD, 
Reign

Hi guys,

XD Just want to highlight a fellow deviant who I believe deserve more attentions ^^: :iconmikitakamoto:

CM: Gwendolyn by MikiTakamoto

Her art style is really adorable, and I have to say she has showed some significant improvement recently ;-;/. Her uses of lightning , contrast and shading have improved so much over the past few weeks OTL. I do believe that what makes a great artist is not entirely his/her natural talent, but it is hard work, dedication and passion. And, I admire Mikitakamoto for that spirit haha XD. 

Anyway, let's take a look at some of her other stuffs XD:
