Hello all, it’s been a (rather) long while!
Been feeling rather tired and having insomnia for the past week due to work, life, annoying people, annoying things etc. You know, the usual combination. I didn’t feel like communicating with anyone or anything unless I have to, so even blogging had to take a backseat.
Helped out as a minion in my very close friend’s pre-wedding photo-shoot and it was the first time in a longgg while that the few of us gathered together for something more than a quick lunch or dinner. A lot of reminiscing of university days and I could never emphasise enough on how grateful and lucky I am to meet them. <3
Also the first time in a longg while that we took loads of photos together.
Won’t show you guys.
But here’s a glimpse of the plus one! First appearance on the blog. 😀
Marriage. I love to joke (?) that I wanna get married asap, but in truth, I don’t think I’m very suited for marriage. I’m terrible at all kinds of relationships and I simply don’t understand the idea of relationship or family – whether nuclear or extended or what not. I guess that has to do with the fact that I come from a rather dysfunctional (?) family and I don’t have much good examples to see and learn around me. haha. I do believe in circumstances and experiences shaping your worldview.. so yeah. Relationships (at least the marriage kind) is really about more than two individuals. It’s two families coming together and I think the idea scares me. haha. I don’t want my family to be involved and I don’t know how to be involved in another family (oh well at least this is how I feel at this point in time).
I think that is one of the main reasons why I’m soooo attracted to the show Marriage not dating. Please go watch it. It’s SO GOOD. Ultimately, it is a drama so I can’t say that it has a very realistic bent, but it is very refreshing that the focus is on working hard to heal each other’s families and through that, make the relationship work. And how it normalise the fact that most families don’t really fit into the mould that we usually associate with families.
I digressed. 😛
Spending time with the girls made me realise how much I miss their company. I have very very good memories of uni days because of them. Very happy to be witnessing a small part of my friend’s journey to the next chapter in her life. <3 Although I’m physically rather tired, it has been an awesome break from the normal life routine.
I feel much more energised ^^
