... Regis, people boxed me in and they were not doing anything with their lives either. Nobody bothered to ask what I wanted.
I was sicked of people telling me what to do. So, I decided to ditch them and run away to Beijing. I never been to Asia before in my life, but I knew that I was making the right decision.
