5 Things To Look Forward After The Wedding

I'm getting married next week.

I'm getting married next week.

I'm getting married next week.

Can you feel my terror?

Is that normal?

Am I abnormal? Sometimes I feel I am.  That I lack the amount of estrogen needed to make me feel more like, "OH MY GOD, I CAN'T WAIT TO WALK DOWN THE AISLE IN A WHITE DRESS LIKE HOW I DREAMED ABOUT SINCE I WAS SIX", rather than "OH MY GOD MY FABULOUS SINGLE LIFE IS OVER."

Like a white girl, I just can't even.

After almost a year of planning, stressing, crying, breakdowns and meltdowns, the final week is finally here.

Don't get me wrong - I adore that person I'm gonna marry next week.  He's my favourite person in the world.

It's just that, marriage.  It's a lifetime commitment.  It's a whole new game.  

As much as I'm excited to marry my favourite person in the world, I also feel like having a mental breakdown thinking about the biggest and most important day of my life.

So in order to keep me from thinking about how I am probably going to mess up my own wedding after a year of painfully meticulous planning, I'm going to create my own happy place and think about the things I want to do AFTER the big bad wedding.

The 5 things I look forward are:

1. Hong Kong birthday trip

It's the next day after our home reception.  I wouldn't consider this as our honeymoon 'coz you don't romp in backpackers hostel during your honeymoon, do you? So let's call it, Amanda's Birthday Trip. 
2. Bungee jump from Macau Tower

If all goes well, I will be able to cross this off my bucket list.  This gets me more excited that walking down the aisle in a white dress.  True story.

3. Chop off locks

After the wedding, there is no reason to keep dem horse mane.

4. Get my nerd on

After a year of doing adult stuff like planning a wedding and getting married, I badly need to heal and be a kid again.

5. Lots of spooning

And free forking. 

So yeah, CAN'T WAIT.
