of plans and the future

Recently, an old friend of mine got engaged to her sweetheart. I went, of course. And old friendships rekindled. No surprise, though, that most of them are either married, engaged to be married or to be engaged soon. Good fun aside, us the single ones got peppered with the obvious question: When is your turn? All I have to say is, all in good time, my friends, all in good time.

Interestingly, very recently, one of my sisters told me that she plans to get engaged to her boyfriend by the next year. And they plan to tie the knot within a year or two. They even talk about purchasing house and all. It stopped me in my tracks, actually. My sister. All grown up. And she's getting herself prepared to start a new life, a new family.

And I ask myself, what plans do I have for myself? I can't think of any. Yet. Not very comforting, no? Here I am, about to turn 26 in a week and I am without a plan for my future. Freaking scary. Seriously. What am I going to do? What is my direction? Where do I go from here? Ahh. Questions and more questions. Yet, no answer.

I don't know, guys. I can't see the future. I can't tell where will I end up, who will I end up with, and what will I become. But I do know that I don't want to be alone for the rest of my life. Well, we'll just have to wait and see now, don't we? I'm getting goosebumps, thinking about the future.

This one is for my friend, Ayu, congratulations on your engagement. You looked gorgeous in the red dress.

And the gifts are absolutely preeee-tay!

Here's to you, my friend. And all you my friends, married or not, engaged or not, let us be happy with whatever we have and be grateful for it. And when my turn comes, you will surely know about it. Fret not, ya!

  2. Ila, miss you and the others, too!
