Those Silly Butterflies...


R : "Did you start a countdown?"

Me : "Huh? For what?"

R : "For our wedding!"

Me : "Nopes, not really"

R : "Why?"

Me : "Too scared!"

R : "Yeah, same here!"

Me : "Why are you scared?"

R : "My freedom is soon coming to an end..."

Me : "Our"

R : "Huh?"

Me : "No more 'I' & 'me' now remember? So you have to say - OUR freedom is soon coming to an end! :P"

Different, aren't we ?

Usually, people start the countdown few months prior to their wedding. Though I am more than comfortable with my would-be, it feels kind of like leaving this world and going to a whole new planet altogether. A new set of people, a new life, a whole new beginning - how can one NOT get scared? I am sure like Sumi, on the day of my wedding, I would look completey dazed. :P

I remember these butterflies making their presence felt in my lil tummy before - usually when I was about to start something new!

Those Hostel Days

I have always been homely. Even at an age when kids were able to adjust without their mothers, I was desperately dependent on my mom.

Then came hostel and initially I was stuck with a very pathetic expression on my face which concerned the warden enough to ask me, 'Are you OK?'. But then on, I went on to love that very hostel. I liked the freedom, I liked looking after my own little space, I liked sneaking into my best friend's room even if we weren't allowed to step out of rooms after 11, I liked handling and taking care of my possessions -- it was a different experience from the usual protected life that I was used to and I quite liked it!

Those Work Days

I couldn't help smiling when I read this post of mine dated back to 2007 - Butterflies In My Stomach.

I was going to start my second job, and guess what? The lil butterflies troubled me so much back then, that I wished wholeheartedly that they would all die never to come back! Well, guess what again? They didn't die like I hoped they would...

.. Now, they are at it again!

I guess the butterflies are going to last for a longer time this time around, until I get used to the new life.

:)

P.S : The wedding date is a little more than a month away from now...

congrats in advance...
enjoy this one month of freedom...
n about the butterflies...they'll never leave you...they always come whenever we're in a state of anticipation...they may subside from time to time..but they'll emerge again..more stronger than the previous time... cos all our decisions become more mature and bigger...
but isn't this feeling lovely?
