When I left the US the first time in 2009, a co-worker and I had made lists of “Things not to talk to Samar/Amy about”
To be honest, this list makes me laugh when I think about that period of my life and all the changes that have happened. I’m glad I took a picture of this, because it’s a good reminder.
I don’t know what made me think of this list tonight, but it most likely had something to do with the fact that people seem to ask me the same questions over and over again. Believe me, I have zero updates.
I realize that I have some huge changes in my life coming up but I will share if I have news. I promise. Scouts Honor. Really.
So, I have decided to make a new list.
Yes, I love lists.
1. Do not ask me if we have booked a hall for the wedding. We have.
2. Do not ask me if we have found an apartment. It’s not easy to find an apartment that suits our needs.
3. Do not ask me about my job search progress. I am searching, really.
4. Do not ask me if I can cook. I can cook and not just eggs.
Now, I realize that people ask because they care and I get it but sometimes I wonder if they are doing it out of curiosity, something to talk about or just plain interest.
Maybe it’s all of the above or none.
