Someone’s hiding in the dark

  I’m always hiding in the bushes at night. Hiding from the people and the police because I find it sickening the fact that I live in a society that has to pay for sleeping, and frowns upon those who refuse to do so. Often wondering if there are others like me out there, people hiding, in the same city, maybe in a nearby bush, people who are also wondering if there are others like…

backpacker hotels in new zealand

Why dont you want to stay at the backpackers’ hotel like all the other foreigners in new Zealand? Because they are lame. But it’s the norm, young travelers here are expected to stay at the backpackers’ hotel, didn’t you hear? Actually, I did hear it, and it’s still lame. I’m not gonna pay for sleeping, at least not for sleeping in a filthy crowded place, for that I can just sleep on the street. When…

About Vanuatu and my life

The other day I got picked up in a van that was carrying 10 people from a country called Vanuatu, which I’ve actually never heard of before. I felt like I was back in Asia when they started playing this party music very loud and singing along. They said that in Vanuatu, they can’t leave someone on the street, so when they see someone hitchhiking they HAVE to pick him up, because of their upbringing…

The cities where people have no souls

  “I don’t want to go to Auckland.” People usually say. If I ask them why not, they say people have no souls there, and I’m like “What?” Just like the Sidney of Australia, it’s just not a nice place to be, or at least that’s what people say. Everyone hates Sydney, everyone hates Auckland, and those who live there always complain and dream about moving to Wellington or Melbourne, you know the cool places,…

About the bus

  Let’s take the bus! Na, I’d rather walk. Why is that? I just don’t like the bus. What, are you too good to use public transport? No, I’m just too poor to use it. It costs a lot, so as long as I have feet I’ll walk, run or ride the bicycle. If I ever get my legs cut off, I’ll then maybe… take the bus or the train. But do you know how…

That guy

  What happened to that guy? Which guy? You know, “that guy”? Which one? You know, that guy who carried a notebook with him on the train, sat across a cute girl and started writing something, when she looked at him, he blushed and shyly looked down, what happened to that guy who was always doing the Naruto hand signs, carrying Pokemon cards everywhere just in case he finds a challenger, that guy who got all…

About pull ups / chin ups

  Today is a special day, the most special day this year. Today is the day I made it to 25. 25 pull-ups in a row. That was actually my goal last year but something happened and I made it this year instead. What’s so special about pull-ups you ask, well nothing really, it’s just my way of feeling better about myself. As that’s pretty much all I have, not gonna win an Oscar anytime…

Some day

Someday I will be the one throwing coins into the fountain instead of being the one picking them up. Someday I’ll be the one driving people around instead of asking for a lift. I’ll be the one providing food instead of asking for it. I’ll be the one who can look after and mentor other people. I’ll be the one dumping food instead of dumpster diving. Ok, no, that’s wrong, I shouldn’t throw food away.…

Just so that it’s out there

If my memory doesn’t fail me I think I was 14 when I learned that second-hand smoke was actually much more harmful than smoking yourself. Then I realized my mother had smoked inside the house, next to me for as long as I had memory. She would bring all her friends home and they will all smoke nonstop next to me while I was in developing age to make sure I wouldn’t grow healthy and that I had…
