Rhythm of Love
MSN is being really silly right now and keeps on signing me out. Sigh. Not to mention I was printing something double-sided and printed on the same side. Fail, Georgina, fail. /bash
Most of my relatives – except one family who live here in Australia – live overseas in Indonesia. I personally don’t talk to them much, but my mum phones my aunts and uncles every once in a while, especially one of her sisters whom she is really close to. She and my dad come from a big family so I have many aunts, uncles and cousins.
I talked to my cousin Ricky yesterday. It’s weird because of the language barrier. My Indonesian isn’t that great, and his English isn’t quite to my level – but it’s good! He’s nearly three years younger than me. Regardless, my mum would actually like him to study here in Australia because it will give him a better education and he’ll be able to work on his English and study his final high school years here.
Talking to him over the phone, Ricky likes the idea but he’s unsure about how it’ll be if he comes here. I miss him a lot because we got along really well last time I visited Indonesia (which was back in 2007), despite the age gap. :) I would really like him to come here, since we have room in our house too, but in the end it’s his decision.
Today my mum had a lot of news for me too. A relative, though a distant one, passed away. But my mum was more excited about something else.
Apparently so many of my cousins are going to get married in the next year. When I was younger, I liked the idea of marrying my “prince”, LOL. Obviously, later on, the right guy. Hearing about all these possible marriages in the next year, I wish I could attend a wedding, but our relatives can’t adjust the wedding dates just for us. Especially when the only suitable time we can holiday is around Christmas or the New Year.
Two of my cousins got married in recent years, and it was nice seeing all their photos when they sent them over… or put them on Facebook, which I snorted at because I don’t have one and my mum was peering at my brother’s screen since he’s the only one in the family with a Facebook account. :P
It’s nice to hear about family going well, even if they aren’t physically close to us. Admittedly I’m a bit jealous. James and I have talked about getting married on several occasions, and it’s become a topic of discussion with Lilian too – it would simply be amazing to have a wedding. I used to watch my parents’ wedding video when I was younger. It was beautiful! At one point, I even asked my mum if she still had her wedding dress. Sadly, she had been poor at the time so it had been hired.
Yes, weddings are expensive if you want them to be extravagant. I don’t want to go down that road though; it’s far off. I hope to be married someday. /faw
Heck, I’m only 19, but, you know… a girl can dream.
