on notice

Notice to myself: when you are already feeling not-happy about the place where you live (where you are trapped, it seems), it's not a good idea to 1. read blogs by people living overseas and/or in Gone West, or 2. to look at photos of what was once your life overseas and/or in Gone West.

As far as ideas go, that is a very bad one. Because you will come across the simplest photo, one like, say, this:
Itabire, Rwanda, 2003

(chosen at random), and you will think, "I used to live there. I used to live there, and now I am stuck here. What has my life become?"

And it won't be the first time you've thought that. It won't even be the first time today that you've thought that.
