Seriously, all I think about is weddings! I’m not even engaged to anyone yet, or have anyone in the picture, but all I seem to do is collect random wedding pictures, follow wedding blogs and just think about weddings and marriage constantly.
I know I want to get married soon (inshallah – God willing), but I haven’t yet managed to find someone who wants to marry a short, curvy, geeky, hijab wearing smiley girl! Right now I’m just grateful my job has been extended for 6 months, but I’m still temporary. I can still be let go at any moment in time. It’s thrilling but also scary to not have any permanency in life. I think my word for 2012 will be Doubt, doubt that I was ever going to make it this far, doubt my dad would live after a major operation, doubt that I can fulfill the potential I know I have.
2011 was definitely Achievement. I achieved so much last year and I am so grateful for my Masters degree, but now the dust has settled and real life is biting me. I think the word for 2013 will be Waiting. Waiting for my prince to come, waiting for the right job, waiting to buy a car. Just constantly Waiting.
So, how’s that for a re-introduction to blogging!
