A couple of days ago, i was discussing adding a new bookshelf to my room with my mom. You know, to house my growing book collection on my profession and hobbies.

Then she said, "Aiya, you'll be married out and gone already..."

That struck a raw nerve in me that i never knew existed till that moment.
And now, it bothers me.

it's not the bookshelf sister... it's leaving my room that's been a part of me for so many years. since i was a teen. many memories. i can't imagine the room being empty without me.

the room is a physical place. all the memories are stored permanently in ur heart. wherever u go, it is still in u.

True... but there're always feelings of attachment to physical objects like how we treasure a present from a friend or a rose from a significant other, etc.
