I am moving out of my aunty’s house after nearly 2 years staying with her and her family. I was so eager to depart with all the preparation and organized stuff. From the moment she asked me to move, I was looking for everywhere with both depression and eagerness. My standard for a room shifted from renting a house with 4 people for 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom to 2 people sharing a room with an ensuite bathroom. Finally I found one by luck, sharing with a friend who is my colleague and we study in the same school as well.

Tonight, 10072017 is the first night I am officially out of my family’s reach, officially living without them.

Tonight I feel sad and alone.

Tonight I want to cry but I can not let my mother know.

It has been over 1 month since I set my foot on the land called Australia.

Everything is new and I have to start all over again.

I learnt many things.

Most of all is, I have to stand on my own even though I have family here.

But they are not my parents, not my younger brother.

They are still strangers to me in some aspects.
