I breathed a sigh of relief when I checked my inbox this morning.

That unexpected e-mail which graced my inbox on a cold Wednesday morning last October, the apprehension and anxiety that followed as I nervously waited for the result of the test as well as the confirmation. It has finally come to this. It is finally official.

While the confirmation also means that I have tonnes to settle before I have to head down south, nothing can burst my bubble of excitement. Almost nothing except for the sudden thought of what we used to be.

I ABSOLUTELY DETEST the fact that you still linger somewhere inside my brain. I have tried my best to shoo you away but if there is one thing that I have learnt in the past six months, the harder I tried the more vivid they became. So, I’ll just let  time slowly and completely erode everything away.

In the past, an achievement like this called for a celebratory Facetime session. After so many years, I had grown so used to share almost every milestone with you and so I guess it’s natural that it feels slightly peculiar now. Nonetheless, I am excited. For the experience, the adventure and the possibility that lies ahead.

Because there’s one thing I am absolutely certain.

I know what we were, what we are and what we’re not.

And this, I promise, will be the last time you’ll ever be mentioned on my blog. 

Onward. Forward.
