It’s been a long time coming. So many things happened since my last post, I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s get the obvious out of the way first. I haven’t blogged in a while because, well, my favourite photographer is gone, or to put it simply, I’m a single lady now (or have been since last the year ended).
Pretty sure everyone has the same burning question being, “What happened?” – here’s my answer, “I don’t know”. The easiest explanation would be that we’re both at different places in our lives. I’m a working adult, he’s still a student. We’ve been together for almost 9.5 years, and to me, it made perfect sense for us to settle down sometime soon (give and take 2 years). I guess for the most part I’ve been the selfish party, always “thinking out loud” about how we’re reaching a decade this year and that, me being into events, wanted something special to remember our 10th by.
I love him and so I wanted him to officially be mine (in His eyes) as fast as possible. I didn’t think about anything else. I’ve never really given a thought about rings (I swear I have no idea what’s what, I don’t even know the types of diamond rings there are), or what I want on my wedding trays, or whatever goes behind the preparation of getting married (with all honesty, all I wanted was to be his wife then get out of the country and go on a month long honeymoon) (No wait, I did want a Manolo Blahnik as my bridal shoes. That was the only thing I was very certain about).
Growing up together, I used to envision a wedding reception in Tanjong Katong Sec (where we first started) but as we matured, we thought the simplest would be the best. You know, a simple solemnisation with the closest friends and family type of reception? Yeah that. (Because a month long vacation, duhhh!) All these talks must have been overwhelming for him to think about, amidst FYP, exams and what have you. As mentioned, I was the selfish party, and my insensitive plans about the future must’ve burdened him. I mean, if I was him, I would’ve hated me too.
I brought this misery upon myself, so I suppose I deserve being let go.
ANYHOOOOOO, I’m still trying to get my old domain back (absolutely no clue what went wrong) so in the meantime, say hello to this new space!
I will be back again! Promise I won’t be lazy.
Till next time!
