I hate change. Seriously. Story of my life.
And I'm a selfish person. Get over it. I'm the first person to admit that. It's not that I don't want others to be happy. I do. I really do. But life would be so much easier for me if I was happy and my needs were met.
That being said, I dont want or need change.
I don't want a new phone. My old,ghetto, broken phone with it's old,ghetto, put-back-together-with-masking-tape-by-my-dad charger works just fine.Thankyouveryfreakingmuch.
I don't want to look at my parents and see them age and see lots of gray hair and new wrinkles that I haven't seen before.
I don't want to get married...just yet. I feel like this is an impending doom.(Save me the marriage- is- something- we -all- have- to- do- sooner- or- later- it's- half- of- our- Sunnah-and-we-must-procreate speech. Been there, heard it all.) Seriously. You know how there is a phrase that goes something like, "There are two guarantees in life : death and taxes." I think they should revise that to say "There are three guarantees in life for a Muslim/Desi/Arab/any other culture that likes to get their daughters/sisters/nieces/ married A.S.A.P.: death, taxes, and marriage.
I don't want my parents stressing themselves out trying to find me the "perfect guy" (idiot sounds so much better, no?) for me.
I don't want to have conversations with my brother that start off with "Remember when we used to..." or "Let's do this, just like old times"
I don't want Sue and Billy (my niece and nephew) to grow up and become bratty toddlers. They're so cute and adorable just the way they are.
I don't want my friends throwing stupid phrases at me like "Keep in touch". Are we in high school or something?
I don't want my friends telling me "Wow, it's been so long since I've seen/talked to you."
I don't want my friends to go off and get married or go to grad school and move to some God forsaken state or country.
I don't want to look for a new job even if I hate my current job
I don't want to call X University my alma mater and receive annoying phone calls asking for donations.
I don't want change. I want it to go away.
I just want some things to stay just the way they are. Is that too much to ask for?
But I do know that some things are inevitable and there's nothing you or I can do about it.
So that,my friends, is what I will continue doing until I am satisfied.
I know I can just suck it up like a big girl and except it, but seriously, who wants to do that?
