It is amazing how a single person can be the source of all the sadness, discord and acrimony within a family.

Can’t Sleep

Maybe it’s jet lag. Does 5 hours zone change cause jet lag? I’m uncomfortable being in this one room pad with a girl. Especially the part about having a single bathroom in the house. I can’t have people being aware about my bowel habits. It’s just too much information. I especially dislike having someone sleeping right outside the bathroom – I mean I dislike attached bathrooms.
I discovered bara and yaoi today. These Japanese artists have always been so talented. They have fascinated Westerners in every era with their work. I think bara and yaoi will be my choice of porn to carry in the future. Much easier than actual porn. Do manga porn artists get much respect? Is it like a thing? I would really like to do that. Some of the perspectives they have sketched are so movie like prefect that I can’t get enough of it.
It’s already 04:30. I think I should make some tea. But I so wanna pee and I’ll disturb her I think …

The Coming Out that didn’t happen

I didn’t do it. I had planned for days that I’ll come out to him over a long weekend spent together drinking and talking. I was not prepared to do it over a cold pizza within a limited time limit. Unfortunately I have trained my friends so well that they don’t ask any questions even after I said I’m prepared for questions. We talked mostly about professional stuff, his work and mine. Cribbed about the company. I did say a couple of times that I didn’t want to talk about work. But at the end of it we were left with no time and I didn’t want to start a new subject anymore. I think I’ll do it over WhatsApp. I want there to be questions. I even told him to ask questions but he didn’t. I want the discussion to end on a positive note. I want something constructive to come out of it. I plan to lay out the rules of engagement and then we’ll proceed.

An Early Morning Comedy of Errors

I think I might have forgotten my mobile  sim on the ship. I can not switch on the other mobile till I have officially arrived because I know mom always sends an sms which if delivered confirms to her that I have landed in the country but have lied to her because I want to spend a few days with Him. I will continue lying to her for the moment till I have that final coming out do our die  showdown.
So I am at the mercy of the friend’s wifi to stay connected with the world. It is quiet difficult to book a cab when you don’t have a mobile phone for the cabbie to call you. So I book the cab on the app. Give the friend’s mobile number for the cabbie to call. He tells me when the cab has arrived at the apartment gates. Now I am looking for the wallet frantically. I remember having kept it at the windows sill last night. Losing things at the  last moment is nothing new for me. I have stopped being surprised or saddened about it long back. It always reminds me of the time I had forgotten the location where I had kept 2 months salary securely. It took the other second officer and two cadets to find it so the time shaking there heads in disapproval.
So here I am now in the cab not connected to a soul in this world. The only person who knows where I am at the moment is this driver. Feels weird to not be connected. How did we survive back then not knowing every thing ? Without the Google Maps of course I have given the driver wrong directions.  I hope the trip is worth the trouble and lying. He will be the first person I will come out to. I am already feeling good after talking to Kenny till late last night. I didn’t really know that talking can be fun. The last day on ship I sat down in the ship’s office and was listening to forwarded jokes from their mobiles. I realised I hadn’t laughed this hard in a long long time. I regretted not having done this before. I think I’ll do this again. I wanted to talk to yPaul over a trip in the weekend in the night without looking at the watch after a few  drinks but I think it’s not gonna happen that way so it’s okay. I’ll do the best that I can. Wait for updates.


Finally finished off the contract. Sent mail about handing over to all. Wonder if I should call the irritating Superintendent. I don’t like him but should I? Because it’s a decent thing to do?
