My classmate's wedding

Secondary school classmate's wedding

Congratulations to the lovely couple! After nearly six years of courtship since secondary school days, they have finally tied the knot.

As I’m writing this entry, I wondered how fast time has travelled and how my life and the environment have evolved and changed over these two years. It has been ages since I last met my secondary school classmates and having missed the class gathering a few months ago, I was determined not to let this opportunity slipped by as it’ll be a great time to catch up with each other and furthermore, this was the first ever wedding I’ll be attending in terms of someone whom I know and of the same age.

Somehow, I had mixed feelings. On one hand, I was excited and happy for both my classmates but on the other, it made me wonder if it is appropriate to settle down at such a young age especially when I’ve not completed my studies, establish my career and most importantly, financially capable. What will happen when one day, one encountered difficulties and soon realized that it was a mistake to marry at such a young age? Will it somewhat affect the relationship and your life?

Anyway, these are food for thoughts. Personally, I feel that it is important to plan one’s future and work towards achieving the goal. I believe in fate and that things will take place on its own. However, this does not mean that I’ll be laying back waiting for things to happen. After all, as saying goes, your life lies in your own hands.
