neanyoe A year ago I asked you if we continued, we'd probably end up falling for each other, so we did. I committed to the idea of the uncommon long distance because I felt the beauty of your character. You possessed the strength needed to endure the lapses & mutually have the support needed from a partner in a different time zone. I miss you terribly & I've failed a promise to be there sooner, but please forgive me, I somehow walked in front of a moving vehicle Plans never go as they're thought, but my plan with you in my life remains my road. I owe you a cake covered face & some candles.. Happy Birthday Dana Marlise!! I cannot wait to dance with you again 5d

  •   nikki6_88 I'm thinking about it. I have the travel bug. Haha. 1w
  •   neanyoe @gatooorboots will do! I've been in a share house since oct but it's comparatively living in Fremont & commuting to the city. 😑 - it's expensive but minimum wage is $18 & you can find private rooms for rent around $600/month. it's completely doable 1w
  •   neanyoe @nikki6_88 do it. here or Gold Coast. Melbs weather isn't consistent (I'm sure you've heard) 1w
  •   nikki6_88 Are you working out there? 1w
  •   neanyoe @nikki6_88 not at the moment, still recovering. will go back though soon 1w
  •   nikki6_88 Do you have what's app? 1w

neanyoe One thing Melbourne's known for, it's bipolar weather. It's summer here, I miss the snow, we've had 5 days in a row being over 100*F & out of no where yesterday, it's rained none stop with a muggy 75degrees sweating neath your rain covers. The post men here, ride small 90s modeled Honda scooters donned in fluorescent everything. Public trans does not charge by distance like BART & goes EVERYWHERE, which I like. They also say our toilets spin the other way when flushed but, that's not a fact I cared to much to have noted for myself. On the way downtown, no crutches 3w
  •   madisonlily Gettttt it 3w
  •   dana_marlise 3w
  •   indianbread2003 So glad to hear no crutches!! and glad you are de-myth-ing Simpsons! And don't believe everything you hear or watch but throughly research things! haha 3w

neanyoe Without hesitation, 2014 was the best year of my life. I learned, grew, taught, loved, received everything, from everything, and even much more so, I gave me. The purist, earnest of me, to what I encountered. I smiled. I lived. I was, in what we attempt daily; content & happy. I want to thank those who've contributed to my reality. Thank you for now being apart of me. <3 1mon
  •   indianbread2003 May this year be another incredible year too in its own way, giving you all that you say above and more in a love way! 1mon
  •   pamela_nguyen Happy New Year, dear! 1mon

neanyoe My first Christmas away from family. It's quite different, quiet almost, since the spirit here in Melbourne is lacking of being anything close to there. My housemates put up a small tree & we had dinner together whilst watching a movie. I made this lentil loaf I found on veganstoner.com lol & it turned out alright! Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy your families & friends & hug them for me, because you can Miss you all 1mon

  •   deeyazabby What a graphic resume would that be. Haha! 2mon
  •   indianbread2003 Praying for you @neanyoe missed your previous posts, hope your sense of smell and taste comes back slowly. You become You again! It's such a blessing/ craving to be yourself when you realise how much you depended and took it for granted. 2mon

neanyoe Today I burned my tongue on a slice of pizza and I think it's a very strong metaphor that sometimes the things you love most in life will hurt you. movie night. 😛 2mon
  •   indianbread2003 Good to see your post. Hope you are healing well. All things we love will hurt us at different stages of life wether it's food, things, or people. We learn and live 2mon
  •   gatooorboots ^^^^ 2mon
  •   neanyoe LOL I was kidding! I just read that somewhere and used it 2mon
  •   indianbread2003 @neanyoe glad you were just joking it's hard to tell on IG. And happy that you don't need the philosophical stuff😀 2mon
  •   jeryhu Dude, it's always about the first bite of a very first slice, burned my tongue on double pepperoni last night!!! Glad to see you're getting better!! All best! P 2mon

neanyoe Life's different again. I'm different again. I finally read the police report from the accident & the driver was going over 70kph (43mph) at impact. I was not drunk & neither was he. My head, which I haven't shared, broke his windshield & fractured in 5 places. I flipped over the top & landed on my left side, injuring my shoulder, breaking my ankle. My right frontal temporal bone had a subdural hematoma beneath it which luckily stopped bleeding, ceasing the need for a craniotomy. I have selfies of my eyes crooked from the swelling. Psychiatric tests later confirmed my noticing of feeling different in some circumstances but with time, I hope to be myself again. I still can't smell. Extremely sweet taste is there, so is spicy, but nothing else. My "moonboot" is still used on my leg but wasn't present for this picture, pre-shower. I share with you these personal points because I tell myself all the time, what if I couldn't anymore? What if, I could & why not. A lot has happened since my last update & as of yesterday, I was discharged to continue care at home. Though I have assistance with driving me to/gathering groceries & nurses three times a week visiting to change my collar liner, I'm independent with all tasks. They've given me a taxi code to use, a shower chair & a kitchen trolly which I use & push around with my food on it. Laundry as well, when I need to. I've been off pain meds for two weeks now & the daily migraines are nonexistent! It's nice being out of the rehab hospital but it was nice always having people, like me, around to spend time with. Can you believe it's been 4 weeks? Life's different again. I'm different again. And that's ok. #Milestone #Journey 2mon

neanyoe Came across this in my book and gave it some thought: "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Now semi-mobile again, I've never been so driven. My answer, "As much as I can." It's been exactly a month since the accident, 9 months of travel, and what a road it's been. Having my mom & sister visit has grown me even closer than when I had left. Unexplainably, I love them. There is so much more now to achieve & conquer. For you Mom, Dad, Angela. I will. 2mon

neanyoe Australia doesn't celebrate thanksgiving but I asked & was allowed out of the hospital with family as part of my therapy. The Chef at #400Gradi won the 2014 world competition for best pizza. No, we're not having turkey but all the stuffing & gravy wouldn't out weigh being with family. Breaking bread with Angela and Mom 2mon

neanyoe I can't understand what half of the Italian guy on my left is saying but I listen daily in reverent silence. See, I have yet realized why this has happened to me but I know with all intuition, how I'm reluctant to be healing & walking soon, this was to strengthen me. The current read in my hands inspired a future endeavor. I will conquer it. The conversations are good. Our stories sympathize one another and all these dallying around yet fellow, fortunate characters, have added much to mine. #WheelChairDiaries 3mon
  •   b.souls Scary... 3mon
  •   pinkysmile0415 Take care and b strong @neanyoe 3mon
  •   kevinhnguyen87 Maybe this was meant to slow u down...so that u could have a deeper appreciation of your experiences while traveling...glad to see ur doing better...hope for the best on ur recovery and the rest of ur journey...stay safe bro 3mon
