I thought it was going to take 16 months or so but it got granted in 9 months! The email came shortly after dinner and wow, just wow.

This is really happening! I am really starting my life in another country. It feels so surreal.

Definitely would make things easier when applying for a job now.

So.

We came home from a walk, I was sitting on the couch using my phone, and he walked over (twice), all smiley at me. Of course I noticed and asked “what is it?” but he just smirked and got down on one knee and asked. “Will you be willing to marry me” was the question.

There was no fireworks, flowers, candlelight dinner, or chocolates, AND, it was the weirdest way to form that sentence, but in that moment, none of that mattered.

He said he thought I would have been embarrassed if he did it in public after I said yes.

Come to think of it, he wasn’t that wrong.

I hate airport goodbyes. (Mostly because you have to face the custom officers afterwards with red eyes and nose from crying.)

But today is day 1 of 84 without you. With the family moving houses and whatsnot, I think I’ll have tons of things to do which is good and honestly, it’s not too bad after the initial goodbye. I still get to talk to you everyday, and I get to spend time with friends and family.

Maybe not so much for you, facing an empty apartment. Sorry my love, next time, I’ll book a shorter trip or you could come with me when your work permits.

Yesterday was our 2nd Anniversary. How time files.

As a tradition I started, a new piece of “art” was added to his collection (Handmade yearly with acrylic paint). May there be many more to come.

Anyway, the bf had to go to Sydney for a meeting so I went down with him. (Also to look around the place we thought was a good place to rent he if gets the job). Side note, he didn’t make me a card / write a note or give me chocolates like last year mostly because he had been busy with preparing slides for a presentation (to get an internship) as well as edit his thesis, which was a valid reason. (Slightly salty but completely understandable.)

So, after his meeting, we went to Ding Tai Fung for some dumplings and I dragged him to Pandora on a whim.

After a good 80 days or so, I finally got to end this horrid long distance thing (like 3 years of it with the now ex wasn’t enough). It was great being able to see my family and friends again but being apart from him was kinda tough especially during Christmas season where everywhere you go, there will be some couple madly in love, rubbing it in your face.

On campus accommodation had another rent increase and I thought screw that, I’m not paying that much anymore so I wanted to live elsewhere and so, after talking to him, he didn’t mind moving out of his current place and find a new place that was closer to school, and we could be under one roof (separate bedrooms of course). The rest is history.

Hopefully, things work out and we don’t get on each other’s nerves with bad habits of sorts.

Fingers crossed.
