Cooled Down

Everything seemed to be fine, and it felt great, even though I was kind of concerned that it might go wrong one day. I am playing a game, and I will quit when I feel like it’s the time. After this game, I will definitely need some time to have a break. What else cooled down includes the gloomy economy. Due to the crisis, business trips are cut down dramatically-taxi trips are changed to train trips; plane trips are mostly turned down. I was waiting in the queue to buy train tickets to Kunshan for a business trip, and I heard people saying how difficult it was to buy one ticket back home this year: he waited outside the ticket booth from 5pm to 7am the next day, and he was the second to buy the ticket. Yet he was told the tickets were sold out already. Unbelievable. When I was walking out the booth with tickets in my hands, I could feel the jealousy conveyed from their eyes. Yeah, I was lucky that I did not have to wait for a whole night to buy tickets, only to get disappointment in the end the next day. But I paid my price as well-the tickets back home are the most expensive tickets I have ever paid, since train tickets back home have already become my dreams that I could possibly have. China, the imbalanced country in fast development, will pay for the consequences that it has been ignoring for a long time. I, definitely, don’t want to see that day, but somehow I feel uneasy sometimes.
