Matt wasn’t keen on me getting this job. He thinks I’m being selfish and it’s going to change me. Well, I don’t know about being selfish. Is wanting to travel and do a bit with you life before you settle down selfish? I don’t think so. Already he’s moaning that I’m wearing more make up. Lordy, he should see me at 3 am on a return stateside flight without it. Shrek is no comparison to me.
Matt thinks I should be considering settling down. But how can I when there’s so much out there to experience? Look at all the people I’m going to meet. If by settling down he means with him, I’ll have to get this traveling bug out of my system before anything like that happens.
His problem is he comes from a large family. His younger sister married and had her first baby by the time she was twenty -two and I know that he sees his life going that way too. I've passed my sell by date already. We’ve been together for so long now. He was the hot stuff in the fourth year and I captured him. I didn't realise he was such a plodder though. No wild plans of seeing the world for him. Just day in day out monotony.
Now it’s not only him but his family have sort of adopted me. I’m in up to my neck and sometimes it feels like a noose. I know they all think I’m the ‘one’ for him but I've got to see what's out there before I get sick on my shoulder, baby wipes in my handbag and droopy bags for boobs.
What is a girl to do? Catch the next flight out of here I reckon.
