I'm really enjoying being on my own again.
I'm really grateful for all the new friends (family?) I made in Penang. But there's something to be said for being in a new place and not knowing anyone, and nobody knowing me.
That said, I met someone at the airport who is also trying to finish her thesis here (on plant-based cooking!). She'll be in Canggu at the weekend, and we'll be study buddies.
