Adult-ing

July 8, 2017

The other day at work, it was one of my colleagues thirtieth birthday. She quite rightly described the twenties as the era in your life that you don’t know whats going on but you kinda just have to stick with it.

For the last 3 years of my life I have been in a so-called “adult job” while also maintaining a youthful life. Festivals, clubbing, pub nights, it hasn’t stopped just because I now work in an office. But everyone around me is starting to settle down.

I don’t even know what I want for dinner let alone where I want to live or work and I’m okay with that. I do love a good plan in place but I’m also very excited for the future and what it holds. I do worry however that i will be thirty years old, still wanting to party hard on top of tables in my local bierkeller and no one else in my friendship group will because they have a kid to look after.

Just the other day a friend asked if I wanted to hold their baby and it was as if they had thrown up in my face from the look of disgust I apparently gave off. Babies are cute but puppies are cuter let’s be honest!!

My plan is to go along with it until I return from my Canada trip next year and then i hope to move out. But things always change and I can’t plan what life has to throw at me. I really enjoy my place of work, I have my own little family, and I am so lucky to have all these warming, welcoming people in my life but i can’t stay in one place forever. There is an entire world out there i am yet to explore from my own view and not through others.

IMG_2281There is a lot for me to deal with right now, but for now i am enjoying not being an adult and i will continue to make the most of that until i am forced. Even if i am turning 21 *gulps* this year.

    That’s such a good way to describe it! I’m 26 and it definitely feels that way a lot haha.

    Lol. It’ll all turn out as intended Sophie. As the architect of your life it’ll be what you want and your path may diverge from the group but you’ll expand and broaden your group.

    When I reflect back, even when I was outwardly living the adult life with a responsible job, home and husband, I was still having fun and doing crazy things. With the right partner and the right philosophy and outlook your thirties, fourties and beyond can maintain spontaneity and adventure. Kids are a choice. You can have a fulfilling life without them.

    You’ve got a good attitude. Enjoy life now, have a plan but don’t fret the future.

    I can tell you that I’ve made it to my thirties, relocation to a different part of the country, figured out what’s going on, and still have plenty of fun and adventures. My idea of fun might have evolved a little, and I’ll probably never have kids, but I did marry someone who likes the same kind fun and adventure that I do. Which seems to have been the key.

    My biggest ‘regret’ (though I wouldn’t actually change a thing, I’m happy how it turned out) is that I didn’t see the world before I settled down.

    Do it!!!
