the world doesn’t revolve around you

Four days ago I woke up and the first thing I did was checking my phone. I wanted to know what time it was. Scrolling down the notifications on the phone and there it was, his message. “Can I call you? Just a minute.”

I replied OK and we talked over the phone for almost an hour. To sum up, he met a girl, they had connection, he confessed, she said yes, and he planned to propose to that girl. And he wanted to make sure that I was fine with it.

Not all days started off like this.  Continue reading

Ten years ago, Mean Girls was still one of my favorite movies. Now I am thinking what was it with me and rom-com movies, that time? Five years ago, Me Before You would make me fall head over heels, fangirling to the sexy William Traynor. But, I didn’t see the movie until last week (and that was because a friend crazily recommended me that movie and she said how come I hadn’t watched it). Well, it was nice and made me cry. But that’s it. Nice. And made me cry. It’s no Dead Poets Society.
