Day 117: 2nd March 2013
So yesterday in bid to lug myself out of my mopey molly syndrome, I decided to force the hubby out of the house to watch a comedy – Identify Theft!
We both love Jason Batemen from the famous series of Arrested Development and I needed a laugh, so why not! 28 USD later, I was rather pleased. It was not fantastic but still quite funny and had a feel good element at the end. How selflessness gives way to selfishness and because of the former, you feel much better about your life. Melissa McCarthy was hilarious, very entertaining and executed her part very effortlessly.
Anyways, what transpired after the movie, was the one worth documenting and remembering. 🙂
As we were walking back home from the theatre, Kris kissed the top of my heart (#shortpeopleadvantages) and told me, ‘HAPPY 1 week wifelet’, (I totally forgot we got married a week ago :/ ) and proceeded to tell me he marked the date in the 2014 calendar coz he was afraid he would forget. HOW SWEET IS THAT BOY? I felt very loved.
As we were walking along, I told him more about graduate school and the expenses and how I was worried that following my dreams/going into graduate school doing the things I want might not be a sensible financial decision and blah blah blah. And he says, ‘Don’t worry about the money, just do the things you want and I’ll take care of the rest, do the things you’re passionate about and the things that make you happy!!’
So yes, today I feel grateful for having married such a wonderful hubby, because its not as it we have tons of cash lying around, yet he’s willing to take on (future) financial strains/inconveniences to help support my dream.
edit: After running some numbers vaguely through my head, I think its more prudent for me to get a job for a year. (If I can that is *crosses fingers*, given the dire job market situation in the US) Then later study part time and work part time in graduate school. I can do it *pumps fist*!!!!! First step, register for the GREs in Nov 2013! Or maybe first step, consolidate those AOS papers so I can file for the GC and get my Employment Pass!!!!
