Journal Entry 15 | Proposal | Mari + Moy

This is the story of how my 2015 ended/2016 started. 

So, I traveled to India the last week and a half of December to be apart of a wedding and see one of the 7 wonders of the world (photos to come, stay tuned). At least, I believe it is one of the 7, the Taj Mahal. Let's fast forward to my last two days in India and go from there. 

So my second to last day in India (December 29th, 2015) was spent traveling for about 15 hours from Hoshiaprpur to Agra. We left at 10 am and did not get to Agra until around 1 or 2 am on December 30th, 2015 (Please keep in mind time in India is ahead of United States time). December 31st, 2015 at 3 am was my flight back to the United States, however, the airport was about 4-5 hours away from Agra, so I literally had less than 12 hours to see the Taj Mahal and it's surroundings. After exploring the site, we all hopped back in the car and began driving to the airport around 4 pm. 

I made it just in time for my flight, and I mean JUST IN TIME! After boarding the plane and traveling for more than 30 hours I arrived in San Francisco on December 31st, 2015 California time. Not even a hour into arriving, I received an invitation from my friend Moy to go to my friend Mari's (Moy's girlfriend) birthday party. The only thing I wanted to do at this point was fall asleep on my bed when I got home. I told hime, I probably won't make it and I went home and fell asleep around 2 pm. 

I slept for a good amount of time and woke up around 9 pm. At this point, I still am exhausted and could fall asleep again for another 8-10 hours (it was tough sleeping on the plane with babies crying), but I figured since all my family is still back in India and I'm home alone on New Year's Eve, I might as well go over to the party. So I got ready and headed over to my friend Mari's house. Once I got there, Moy comes out and tells me that he has something to tell me and tells me he is proposing tomorrow (January 1st, 2016) and all of our friends are going to be apart of the proposal. He asked if I would be willing to tag along with him and I agreed to go on the trip with them, even though I knew I was still going to be extremely exhausted. 

The following day, we all got together and headed out to Twin Peaks in San Francisco where Moy proposed to Mari and of course she said yes!

Man, what a way to kick off 2016!
