In three day I’ll be 29 and I’m having a bit of trouble grasping that I’m that old. It’s not that I feel old because I don’t. I feel like I’m the same person I was ten years ago, only happier and wiser. It’s just that I don’t feel like I’m at that place where someone close to thirty should be.
I dislike the expectations of my age more than my actual age. It feels like all my friends are having babies, getting married or buying houses. That’s what’s expected of someone my age but I’m not there yet and I don’t want to be. I don’t feel the need to get married. That whole “every girl dreams about her wedding day” is bs. I’ve never dreamed about my wedding. And starting a family? I don’t even like kids!
And call me immature but even though I rarely party these days I prefer having the option to do so rather than being stuck at home with kids every weekend. I don’t want to settle down in that way. I’d much prefer being young a little while longer.
Besides, when have I ever been the one doing what’s expected of me?
