My boyfriend and I wasn't able to really celebrate our 3rd year anniversary. We were extremely busy that day - August 29, 2013. Although we tried to somehow be together in a few hours.
The night before our anniversary, it was my last day at work. There were a lot of things in my mind. The day of our anniversary was the same day I signed a job offer for a company I will be employed at not too long from now. I finally got myself an employer right after my last day at Emerson. God is really good! :)
My boyfriend accompanied me to the new company and waited for a few hours as I signed the job offer. It was the only way we can be together that day. After that appointment, we went home. I slept for hours and my boyfriend went to photograph a wedding. I was supposed to help him out but I was really exhausted.
I went to see him again when I woke up in the evening and was surprised by a bunch of flowers he brought home for me. That was really sweet. We may not have had a grand celebration but at least we were together. We talked for a few more hours while his Yamaha Speakers were playing soft music in the background. We talked until past midnight.
Our love story isn't fairytale-like. It's a simple kind of love which is full of hopes and dreams. We fight about random things yet we still try to work things out. It's because we really love each other.
I know I'm not too young to be waiting but quite frankly, I'm willing to wait. My young boyfriend still have to learn a lot of things. I don't want to push him too hard. And I can be patient enough to teach him and just be there for him. Besides, there's a lot of things that I want to prove to myself before settling down. I may not be young but I'm not too old either. :)
We are holding on and will keep trying to defy all odds. If we are meant to be together, then be it - in God's perfect time.
