Friends, by choice!1:03 AM
That's what I had been missing! Someone to have an mentally stimulating conversation with which does not stop at absolutely anything. She is my middle school friend, with whom I wasn't that close in school but we re-kindled our friendship few years back and it has been worth-our-while, ever since. She is someone who will call a spade a spade, which is one of her endearing qualities. [Caring, ambitious, friendly and intelligent are few adjectives I would use for her]
You know, one always hears that old friends are the best ones or that eventually you are only left with a handful of friends, or some other cliché like that? I some how do not agree with any of them! I have found friends at different walks in my life and most of them have stayed. I have different, yet significant friendships with each of them! I think after a while any friendship can sustain as long as they give each other breathing space, independence and doesn't impose over-familiriaty [personal opinion!].
The best part of the weekend [besides her amazing hospitality ...]? She complimented me [for a change, should I say? :P] that I haven't changed 'at all' after marriage and she appreciates that I am still 'my-own-person' [in her words!] and I haven't lost my life to the role of a wife. I like it!
Her only advice was that I should consider doing a MBA at some point in my life 'coz she can picture me 'doing it'. Unfortunately, I do not think that is going to happen in this life time [I am so over with the whole studying part of life!] so let's move on to the pictures ...
Below is actually an account of my outfits, proving my point from the previous post - The Packing List
