So people always say your teenage year are really tough! Hormones, exams and school is stressful with a doubt. But looking back my teen years were a breeze but what they don’t tell you that your teen years is the pregame or prequel to your 20’s. Yes things happen in your teens but it’s never the end of the world, your story is just establishing it’s self, because life gets even more confusing after turning 20! And I was not prepared!
At school your life is planned out for you lessons exams, every thing. As an adult you are in control of all plans and organsing. Even getting your friend together for a meet up in the pub is a mission. Pre-booking weekends so you can all make it and then having to cancel and reorganise for another time again. Everyone is off living their best little lives so you end up just supporting them from a far via social media. That is ok up until a certain point but there is nothing like actually meeting up with an old friend.
There is just so much stuff that comes with being older! As a teen is is acceptable to hide under your duvet for a week and you roll out and nothing will have changed. Do that as an adult and you’ve lost your job, car, rent and I’m sure the endless list goes on. But if you loose your job your really stuck!! An ‘adult job’ is something you are also assumed to gain at some point during your early 20’s. An adult job is normally full time and very boring. I now have one of these jobs and yes the money is nice but I can’t see myself doing this forever. Yet me teaching dance inst classed as a job to a lot of people I know. They think its a hobby, or I do it for fun. I mean I didn’t go to university for 3 years to just sit in an office.
I mentioned this recently in a post but people are very judgmental! ‘When are you getting married’, ‘babies? You’ll be next!’ or ‘When are you moving out? Getting a house?’ Not anytime soon time soon! Just NO NO NO thanks! I’m just kind of happy to bobble along at the moment. I am nowhere near ready for anything like that regardless of half of the people I went to school with having their own little families (not that there is anything wrong with that). But I have the rest of my life to sort those things out yet people constantly remind you about these things.
So there we go that is my rant!! For now! Let me know if you have experienced similar in your 20’s.
Thanks for taking a look!
