Week 12: Stop and smell the orchids

“I’m late, I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!” — The White Rabbit

  1. that I became so obsessed with ticking off to-do lists and making sure everything was going “to plan” on this journey,
  2. that I lost focus of the goal (to learn and meet new people), and
  3. that I forgot to stop and smell the orchids (in reference to Singapore’s national flower) along the way.
