I re-connected with Tina last week at Matt's wedding. And it was so awesome -- I think the best thing about weddings (for me) is not the beauty of the union of 2 people (I'm already desensitized after the chain of weddings this year), but really, of the people you get reacquainted with!
I think the last time I met Tina before last week was like last year at the Sheares Hall reunion -- though I spoke to her quite a bit then, I had to rush off to beerfest (Gosh, has it really been a year since?) so didn't manage to talk a lot.
But seeing her at Matt's wedding made me so happy. I have never known Tina much, even in hall days. I wonder why, but maybe because she camped out in her room so much, and I was away in the US for 2 years, plus all that warcraft I was playing with the 6th floor boys - we never really got to spend much time together. Maybe I looked intimidating in those says, apparently Tina said I was too "popular"... ahhhh yea my glory days of old....
Om nom nom nomz!
Somehow, Tina is totally relatable. And although I tell a lot of my life story to many people, I hardly share everything, only bits and pieces I allow them to know. But with Tina, I wasn't afraid to. Either I am no longer "ashamed" or she brings out the best in me.
Hope to catch her soon again, to try on more gowns, and hopefully I can really go with her to China in September for her ceremony! Yaay! Who knows what it will bring?
Good night, Tina!
