Weird Dreams and Stuffs

Last night, I dreamed of an old friend of mine back in high school, the first guy who courted me. It almost became 'us' but I suppose it simply wasn't meant to be. We were friends first before the courtship, with a mutual love of books. We spent many times just sitting next to each other, talking, exchanging stories about the books we've read, enjoying a camaraderie that was very natural.

And then things changed... suddenly, gazes became longer, glances became stolen, and the conversation became stilted. Shyness ensued between us. I suppose that was probably the reason why we hadn't become a couple... when he started courting me, we became shy around each other. Our easy camaraderie became an awkward courtship. The friendship fizzled as we fumbled around each other.

So when we parted ways after high school, our friendship dissolved as well. Our conversations became few and far in between. Also, I learned his preferences have changed... (he's become gay, actually). He seems to be doing well though, currently taking up medicine in UST.

I wonder why I dreamed of him. In my dream, he was pursuing me and acting very romantic. Oh well, weird dream!

Anyway...

As I've mentioned before, I got my invites already. They're very simple, just two pages with a map printed on bond paper. Here they are:



I really hadn't wanted to spend a lot on invitations. I like my invites, and yet I almost wish I hadn't been in such a hurry getting them done. I was just so excited to book Cardprints. Now I almost wish I could have DIYed the design and just had it printed in Recto.

Though well, I'm really not sure when I'd find the time to DIY it really with an infant to take care of. Also, when would I find the time to go to Recto???

Anyway, I'm still happy with my invites, but if I had to do it all over again, I think I would've tried my hand at DIY.

Pretty invites. As long as you like them sis... invites need not be expensive. In relation to your dream, I dream about my could-have-been sometimes. In my dreams we're as passionate as we were back way before... And then I wake up and realize that I'm glad my one-that-got-away got away. :)

Thanks, Tani. =) I'm feeling much better about my invites. Hehe, yes, who needs dreams when reality is so much better. =) I do wonder if I ended up with that guy... only for him to realize that he prefers... fellow guys. Gosh! Haha.
