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.
There 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.
