Quick Update

There’s a reason I have been on and off WordPress lately. I got engaged recently Alhamdulillah. My fiancé is aware of my blog and he is supportive of it (in fact he keeps telling me to get back on it properly) so rest assured I shall be back in full force shortly. I apologise for not keeping up and leaving you all in a lurch. Honestly speaking, I myself had no clue where life would be taking me in the past few months leading to today. But now that a big part of my future is done and dusted, I can sit back in ease focusing on my studies and blogging among other hobbies to name a few.

The wedding is in January next year in sha Allah and I am so excited. I have been looking at bridal dresses and drooling on wedding décor because you really can’t do much desi shopping here in Australia so I am just patiently biding my time till November when I am off to India for the shopping and planning. I apologise in advance for the break I shall be taking from November to February.

Right now I am doing my placement at a secondary school for the teaching degree that I am doing at uni. Its going really well Alhamdulillah. Enjoying so far although some of the naughty kids are doing my head in. But I am glad I decided to take up teaching after Biotechnology. I will be able to teach biotech at tertiary level if I do my PhD. So far I am enjoying school teaching so I am still deciding whether I should go ahead and do PhD or stay at secondary level.

Anyway, that’s what’s up with my life. Lots going on with university, teaching, planning lessons, finishing up on assignments, getting engaged, attending friends’ engagements, planning for wedding, etc. Let me know what’s up with yours.

  2. Congratulations! Is it like engagement season? This friend of mine got engaged recently and all he has been talking recently relates to the impeding wedding which curiously is also in January. I guess, January is peak wedding season, at least in India. Anyway, mostly he talks about organising burping competitions at his wedding. He invited me too, which I accepted conditionally, with the condition being gajar ka halwa being included in the menu.
    Oh never mind me, congratulations again! Wishing you and your fiancé a happy and fun-filled life together.

      1. Thanks from him. I understand the response has come quite a bit late, but hey, newlyweds tend to remain newlyweds for a year or so, right?

        Ah, thanks for the virtual invitation. Pity I saw this a few months too late.

  6. Congratulations !!!!!
    What a beautiful ring in a beautiful hand.
    I am so happy for you and him (?)
    Did you say “yes” to him just because he is allowing you to blog.
    I felt from your post that you are more happy for this reason than your engagement. Just kidding. 😀
    Best wishes💍
