And there I was. I had made it. I was 26 years old living on my own in China with a paycheck and the start of a career. I was learning Chinese and I was traveling the world and people wanted to know me, because I was someone. But making it felt lonely and I realized that finding a good man and settling down couldn't possibly be a let down. I was on a beach in Thailand and I was sitting on the sand. It was late at night and it was just me sitting there with a blanket of stars above me. I'm from New York and I had never seen so many stars in my life. I must have seen four or five shooting stars and I remember thinking what do I wish for and the only thing I wanted was to have someone sitting next to me.
I want to travel the whole world. See every single wonder, meet a person from every different culture and speak every language out there. But I want to do that with someone at my side.
