What am I doing?

Why am I leaving this place? I have never enjoyed my life more than I have these past 12 months, these past 12 days, these past 12 hours. Why would I want to return to Reality?

If given the choice between living a pampered life, working a pleasant, easy job, having a diverse group of amazing friends, and being otherwise admired by the entire population of a country...

...and living in one's hometown, with no job, few friends, and little opportunities for having exploration and newness...

...why would I be making this choice for the latter?

Yuki, I guess.

Love makes us all do things we cannot rationalize

I've also made the choice between living a wildly interesting life abroad alone or having a dull American life with my partner. Not sure which is better.
