We Accept the Love We Think We Deserve

“I think I’ve just seen Nathan stealing a baby.”

Yesterday, out of the mist, my first best friend whom I haven’t seen in about 6 years dropped by my house for a surprise visit, so you cannot imagine how surprised I was when my mum said Natalie was here. Natalie transferred from my primary school after Standard Three and moved to Penang, and 3 years ago she moved to Melbourne, and she is back in Malaysia to visit on her school break. She came with her mother and a friend from Australia, and I admit, things were pretty awkward at first, but then I started opening up and we talked about the school system here, dogs, and past memories we had in primary school.

(I don’t have many photos of Natalie from when she was still in Alor Setar, which is a shame, because welp, I forgot to take a photo with her during this visit. Meanwhile, enjoy this picture from way back in Standard One. Natalie is the second one from the left.)

Soon it was time for her to leave, and it was a pity because we just got started down on a road of reminiscence but I pretty much promised her a trip down to Melbourne next year, and that is a definite upside.

I also watched Despicable Me last night, one of the best Pixar movies next to How To Train Your Dragon & Toy Story 3. I’m not sure if the other two are Pixar movies but whatever.

Heart had three needles stuck in him today, and he’s been really miserable since. Speaking of miserable, I’m getting my PMR results next Tuesday, which was quite a shock at first because word had it going we were getting it on the 28th, but now we’re getting it on the 23rd and the results pretty much determine my Christmas mood. What an appropriate early Christmas present.

As you can see my festivity mood has been ruined by the educational department so I’m just going to watch some Misfits and wait out the anxiety.
