Saw Victor who was my boss' student when we had our dinner in Sushi Tei last night. My boss asked him to join us and oh my, I did have great time chatting with him.
Victor happens to be attending BUAA （北京航空航天大学），which is the university I went to. Needless to say, I had a fabulous time recalling those days in Beijing. I kept saying "I miss Beijing" again and again. So often during the dinner time that my boss got sick of it.
I miss Beijing. Lovely environment. Nice weather. Yummy food. Superb friends. Cheap stuff everywhere. What more to ask?
However, it's not because Beijing is THAT great. I miss the "me" when I was there. The nice me. I remember how I used to take life very easily back then. Nothing could bother me. All I had to worry was exams and attendance list. Things were never out of control. I pretty much had everything done just like how I wished. All in all, I had a fabulous life.
When we separated last night, instead of saying goodbye to Victor, I said, "See you in Beijing." Oh, yeah, I miss Beijing THAT much.
You know what I miss the most? That certain somebody.
He used to be there every single time I needed him. Through e-mails and/or phone calls. Whenever I felt homesick or down, he always came up with the perfect wordings to cheer me up. He had this strange faith in me, that I would stay strong. He knew how to stop my tears and bring laughter back to my face. Never did he mind my childishness and my inability to be tough. I can't imagine how wrecked I would have been if it hadn't been for him.
Guess what, that person is you. My rock.
You were in my life, still are at this moment and I hope you will be in the future.
