Isn't it Ironic?

Some of my friends from Abu Dhabi and Dubai wanted to come to my wedding in July. I just checked the website and it says that the processing time for a Pakistani visa is 12 weeks! (12 weeks?!). Some of them may not be able to make it :'(

I'm going through a really weird phase right now. It's like I'm not sure if I want to get married any more :S. Mr. F's being extra extra nice and very patient but I'm just being mean :P. I can't help it! I feel like my life will change forever after I'm married and I don't feel ready to let go... Like, I won't be able to travel alone and I don't like sharing and I'm such a private person as it is... Plus, I have to be all grown-up and responsible with lots of nephews and nieces (some of them are my age... yikes!). I'm going to turn into a fat desi aunty :(

If I could go back in time, I'd pick 2004 and stick with it... an idealistic freshman in college enjoying my new-found freedom in the US *sigh*.

Plan for the weekend: watching "It's Complicated" with my girlfriends... if the bijli doesn't ruin it :P

Have a great weekend!


  1. haha, You may also wish to consider how Mr. F's life is also changing...wildly.

    I don't think anyone ever feels ready to stop being single and carefree. Marriage is just a part of life. Like a meteor hurtling it's way to earth; we only care about the potential impact once it gets closer.

    We all miss the days when we were idealistic freshman at college in the US. Endless opportunities galore.

  2. Dear Gaia, I've been following your blog for quite a while. It is a joy to read! I never left a comment before, but now I feel I should. Forgive me for sayin this, but are you sure you want to rush into a marriage you are not sure of? Marriage can bring you a lot of joy or make you very very unhappy. Make sure you pick the right man! Remember: It's for the rest of your life. Best of luck, dear Gaia! :-)

  3. :D
    This is a regular opinion of all ladies (at least those I have met) a few months before marriage :P

    But its basis is very strong. It's a HUGE change (okay, I'm not helping :S).. but the good news is that a person adjusts quickly. So I remember my sis being all fine only a few weeks into marriage.. and confiding to me keh "hey, ab mujhay itna strange nahi lagta!" :).. So that's great news no ...?

  4. LOL... I guess :)
    @Anonymous... ummm, are you ever sure? My mom, even after 25 years of marriage has to compromise on a few things... iA I hope things work out... I guess that's the best you can hope for, right.
