Every year since I started on this blog I like to document how I have grown and changed on my birthday. This post is a little late but well, it’s my blog, so I can be fashionably late.
Funny story, my husband is always 15 minutes early to everything. Ever since we got married and with me in tow, he’s been late for every dawat, wedding and dinner party going. I tell him to forget his past life, he’s running on Humaira Standard Time now lol. Don’t get me wrong, I can be on time if I need to be, but if I haven’t been out for a few days I seem to forget all concept of time and how long it takes to get anywhere.
Anyway, this last year has been a roller coaster. I quit my job, got sick, met a guy, decided I liked him enough to take things further, found myself engaged and then married all in a matter of months. Then I left home and moved to a different city and had to adjust to being on my own most of the day. I also had to adjust to not being familiar with london tubes, not having a car and not knowing a soul.
2 out of those 3 things have been knocked out, but I am working on the other thing. Making friends. I don’t know if anybody knows this but I am incredibly shy. I used to be cripplingly shy and would just sit in a corner and not talk to anybody. I sometimes revert to that when I’m in a situation where I don’t have any control. I’m slowly working on it because I made myself get out there and meet new people.
I’m working on getting the girl back that I knew before I got married, with some modifications and upgrades. She’s in here somewhere but I just have to coax her out in this new environment.
I’m still not sure how I feel about turning the big 30 next year because I feel I haven’t done nearly any of the things I really wanted to before i turned 30 and had to start acting responsible.
I’m terrified of heights and yet I still want to either sky dive or bungee jump.
I can’t watch horror movies but I’m really getting into American Horror Story: Coven.
I really want to go to all the places in my mental travel list before they’re destroyed.
I really want to go to Disneyland and meet Gill.
That is all.
