Wonderful Weddings and Weekends of Woe
So. Despite all my promises to actually update this blog with things like pictures and posts and stuff (you know, like an active blogger would), I have instead failed to post for several weeks. This, I assure you, is completely my fault. I have no excuses apart from games, and a lack of money to go on adventures to enthrall you with.
However, this Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of my friend Jesuh and her (now) husband Jinhee. I won’t lie, dear readers – attending weddings always leaves me conflicted. On the one hand, you have the joy of other people and seeing them happier than you have ever seen them. The beautiful ceremony and the confirmation that not everything in the world is a bit shit. On the other, you have the crippling “My god, how old am I getting that I attend these things now?” feeling, combined with (if you are me) a confusion as to what to say to people. Congratulations seems obvious (and is normally what I opt for) but a part of me always wants to scream “Nooo. Not *insert name here*. They were so young…”
In all seriousness, I was very happy for Jesuh and thrilled to be invited to her special day. The wedding is the first I have attended in Korea and it didn’t fail to disappoint. I moved from awe, to confusion to awe and confusion (where I stayed for much of the ceremony). Jesuh looked wonderful in her dress (pictures to come soon) and her husband looked very dapper in a tuxedo. I would very much love to tell you about the ceremony itself but I can’t say much outside of it was very beautiful. It even made me, an emotionally repressed British man, get all emotional. I did feel better for not really following what was going on when I spoke to Jesuh later and she assured me she didn’t really know either. I was also lucky enough to be invited to throw confetti at the end of the ceremony by what I assume were bridesmaids.
Apart from that, I spent the weekend ill. I have been rather dizzy since Friday. It seems to be getting better today but I don’t want to curse it. I hope you are all well and will write again soon. And post some wedding pictures.
