I have said this once before that I am not a very Monthly Favorites kind of a girl. I don’t use anything enough to form an opinion in a month. But I’ve always had a thing for documenting my life and thoughts. I find this idea so amazing because I love looking back at memories and seeing how far I have come or what I was like before and if I have changed as a person or not. I have been thinking about it from so long and have finally decided to start a new category called ‘Moments’. I plan to write a post a month about the previous one and talk about anything and everything I believe I would want to commit to my memory or look back at after a while. This post is the first installment of Moments series. I don’t know if you guys will like it but I hope you do! 🙂
I had an intense desire for wanderlust in September. I just wanted to grab a bag, pack some clothes and go away for a long while to somewhere very far. Be around the beach, get lost in the wilderness, be in the rain, sleep under the sky filled with stars, just be near nature as much as possible and live a simple life. Then I looked at my bank balance realizing I can’t afford an air ticket and all the pending work I had and asked my heart to shut up! One day I will travel the world without any restrictions and do as I please.
Last week of August and start of September were very busy days for me. I had so many errands to run and some urgent shopping to do. When I got home after I was done getting all the things I wanted and sat down ticking them off my wish list I was overwhelmed with emotions. I had all the stuff I ever wanted, even things I wrote down one or two years back when I thought I will never be able to get any of them. I felt so blessed that I was living a comfortable life, could get all the material things, had a roof over my head and dine out at good places. I thanked the Lord so much. It was my favorite moment of September.
I started having a little obsession with a glass in September. I am a well known mug lover and collecting them is my hobby. I am not that fussy about glasses but one day mum was rummaging through her kitchen cabinets and found some Coca Cola glasses merchandise which came with McDonald’s value meal a while back. I set eyes on them and that was it. I called dibs on all three. I have been using just one for now and I love it. It is green, has ripples and the Coca Cola logo seems super cool on it. I am not a fan of fizzy drinks but this glass is the cutest ever.
Now that I am not working and have a lot of spare time on my hand I thought why not rewatch Friends TV series from the very start. I didn’t realize I was signing up for the worst emotional trauma ever because it was 11 years ago when I finished this series and I hardly remember anything about it except season 9 and 10. I thought rewatching it wouldn’t hurt but damn did my feels box explode so freaking much.
I loved everything about the show. From ‘It’s always been you, Rach’ to ‘because you are Rachel & Ross’, to Mona & Chandler and that one drunken night in London, to Joey’s love for food, kiddish mind, crazy acting stints, being always there for his friends and falling in love with that one girl, to Phoebe’s craziness, smelly cat, David who moved to Minsk and that one special guy, I loved it all. It was all so damn perfect.
The night I finished it I had no idea what to do with my life anymore and I was so upset so I watched all their interviews and the next night I watched the first episode of season 1 again. I don’t think I will ever get over Friends now. I feel you guys who keep crying about this show and ask for a reunion. We need couple more seasons, yeah, and I don’t mind if they have aged. We all still love them madly!!
The fact that I have mastered Chandler’s expressions and his laugh is a bit alarming though because I don’t know how to loose it now. xD
I think when its September there isn’t much on a person’s mind than Halloween or at least that’s the case with me. I love Halloween because you get to dress up and all that, ha. I dressed up as Queen of The Seelie Court of New York from The Mortal Instruments in 2013 and that was so much fun. I couldn’t do anything last year which was really sad so I am looking forward to this year’s Halloween. 🙂
