My life has been very weird living here. Because I’m an artist people tend to see me in a completely different daylight. In the beginning when I just started out I needed to win the respect. And now while living and working abroad it feels I need to have to start all over again. But I chose this life.
The weirdest things I encountered was with boyfriends. I have been here now for almost 7 months I believe but it feels like they think it’s very special to date with an Asian artist. Maybe they think it’s exotic or something.
But for me it’s very frustrating as many don’t really care about me, or are not interested in my life but only in my as a ‘body’. I know it’s not true but it’s how I feel.
Maybe this is what people call ‘Facing life’.
