Hi, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I apologize for the late update, I’ve had the past one week to write about this but somehow never got around to actually doing it (partly because I was busy settling other things and catching up on some much needed sleep and just lazing around).
Anyhow. It’s been around a week, but I am now officially unemployed!
Yes, that’s right. Last Monday (July 30th) was my last working day as a Administrative Executive (Course Administration) at the School of Business, Monash University Malaysia. It’s been a good one year (July 10th, 2017 to July 30th, 2018), but life’s gotta move on and it’s time for me to bid farewell to my first ever full-time job (I’ll write more on where my life will take me to in a different post soon, once everything has settled down and confirmed).
Yes, you read it right. Alhamdulillah, we are finally married!
One month ago, on 23rd June 2018, I officially became the wife of my beloved husband, Aiman Ardani bin Omar. After 5+ years together, we tied the knot and now, #syazdani is officially halal!
I have a lot of people to thank for making our day a reality – especially to my mother and father, for all that they’ve done to prepare for this huge day. I know it means a lot to them because it’s the one and only time that my dad gets to ‘give away’ his daughter to another man (i.e. I’m their only daughter), so planning this wedding has been a special journey for us.
Almost a year ago, someone asked me a question on my Ask.fm, and I’ve been meaning to answer it, but as always, I kept putting things off. Thought that now is a good time (better late than never, huh?) to answer it, as it’s been a year since I graduated from college, and the past year has given me tons of time to reflect on my college life experience and to think about what I actually carry with me after I left my second home, Madison.
“Did you imagine the [university] life before you study in the [university]? So, is it same with what [you’ve] imagine[d]?”
In this huge, huge world, there are an abundant of opportunities for us to grab. There are millions of doors to be opened and endless amount of paths to walk on. And while there may be tons of things that appeal to you, or that there are multiple things that caught your attention, sometimes you have to know when to turn something down and choose what’s best for you.
I did something today that I was hoping dearly I didn’t have to do, but I knew that I have to make that decision sooner or later, and there was no point in delaying it. It has been in my mind for the past year and a half, and was one of the things that kept me going and gave me hope, but for now, I have to let it go. I couldn’t hold on to it much longer, because I know that I should be moving on and doing things that may be better for me, in so many different ways.
