Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do, you won’t but you might.  (Elliott Smith)

Having beautiful memories doesn’t always bring salvation. The more beautiful memory it is, the more painful it can become. It can even become terrifying. It’s very hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember. The feelings are still fresh, as if it just happened yesterday. Well, perhaps, it takes some sort of sadness for a person to grow, or even to know what happiness is… and it doesn’t matter who hurt you or broke you down, what matters is who makes you smile again….

Well, positive thinking: disappointment should be finite; and hope should be infinite. Maybe, just maybe the light can reach even the bottom of the dark ocean. Maybe there’s just one dark road ahead. But, I still need to believe and keep going. I have to believe that the stars will light up the path, even just a little bit.

Winter, the season I met you, is coming.
A winter without you, is coming…

So yesterday was a crucial date for Scotland, it determined whether it would become an independent country.

For myself, I don’t have the right to vote (as I haven’t been here long enough), I may not have the right to support any side either (I have only be here for 2 years). I would say, it is destiny that made me come to Scotland, I chose Aberdeen University only because it’s the first university that appeared on the UCAS list (due to its alphabetical order), with no practical reason. Having been here for a few months, I found this place lovely, and unique. Scottish people are friendly, they have great landscape, Aberdeen has its own marvellous granite as it is called the granite city, Loch Ness has its own mystery for the Loch Ness Monster, Shetland has its own Shetland ponies, Highland has its own Scottish Whiskey….. Scotland is just a land with a lot of unique features, and I love it profoundly!

I am in favor of YES Campaign for Scotland Independence Referendum firstly because I guess it would be easier for me to immigrate to this amazing land if Scotland becomes independent. Yes, I was selfish and I only thought about myself. That’s why I joined the YES Campaign on their FB Group. Having been there for a while, I very much appreciate the efforts that they have put in, in order to achieve their goal. They may have different background, but they only have one aim: Scotland Independence. From what I saw, they genuinely have their reasonable arguments FOR Scotland Independence, and they indeed tried 110% of what they could have done to get as many YES votes as possible. I am actually touched by their efforts, and their passion about Scotland, and so I started persuading my friends to vote YES. I don’t have the right to vote, however, I successfully got 2 of my friends changing from NO to YES, and 3 friends from not voting to voting YES, so hopefully they kind of voted on my behalf.

We lost. However, I would think it as a glorious defeat, as I believe most of the YES voters have got their logical reasons in mind, and they truly believe in Independence; while some of the NO voters were probably just ignorant, refusing to here what the YES was about. I respect the finaly results, I respect the NO voters who actually have their reasons. I don’t know, but I found that YES voters, regardless of their defeat, are more respectable for their attempt for innovation, and revolution, while the NO votes would probably refer to being defensive and safe. I think the world somehow needs some innovation and revolution to improve, so if I could vote, it would definitely have been the biggest YES. I am disappointed, for sure, I thought Scottish people are the ones who sing the songs of Freedom, Scotland the Brave, but when they got the chance of having their freedom, they just chose not to have it.

Thinking about my future, with Scotland being back to UK again, the immigration policy would be pretty hard. I can still do it, as long as I can get a decent job, or open a business here. However, I shall find another way as well, as I don’t want to go back to HK or China anymore. I love Europe. So I may immigrate to Ireland, or France I assume (if I cannot immigrate to Scotland/ UK), so it may be time for me to pick up French again. Once I have got the EU passport, then I can always easily come back to Scotland to live, it may just take a longer time!
