My engagement day happened almost three years ago and since the whole event itself was a last minute decision, I asked one of our close friends, Dzafri, to be our photographer which he gladly said yes but little did he know, he met the love of his life there and she happens to be my best friend!
I met Farim when we were fifteen; clueless, addicted to Myspace and weird fringe. She is one of the very few people that saw me at my lowest point in life and did not judge any stupid decisions I made. I also watched her fall for useless guys but hey, who didn’t at that one point in life. We would talk on the phone for hours after school (she moved to a different school a year after that). I definitely remember her being in my Top 8 (Top 4, even haha!)
Of course we had our ups and downs but we made it up and look how far we’ve come, she’s getting married in three months. We used to talk about our heartaches, a lot. I guess most of our phone calls revolved around that. It was either me crying over something bad and vice versa.
We were just two sixteen year olds who listened to Tegan & Sara a lot (Favorite Thing by Kate Nash used to be our emo jam) but look at us now, Farim! We still listen to those songs but we don’t feel sad about it. We now laugh at the stupid things we did back then and she was my maid of honor for both events and next year, I’m gonna be hers!
I don’t know if you read this space or not but I am so happy that you found your happiness in the most unexpected timing. You used to cry a lot, you were unhappy but to finally know how content your heart is right now feels so good. You deserve this, baby girl. Now go get married!
