sometimes we say we are not free, we cancel dates. because we have assignments to finish, finals to prepare for, job applications to complete, family weddings to help out with, holidays to go on, research field trips to take.
and we say, oh, it's just for now. after this unit / semester / project / application / wedding is over, we'll have more time for each other.
but is that the case? after you finish a report, something else will come up. life is made up of many big events. but we prioritise. we make time for the people and things that matter most to us. even now, as i am preparing for my law finals, i find time to spend with S. we found time to book our annual honeymoon (to Uluru this time!)
thoughts on my mind for the past few days.
