’20 Things I’ve Learned In My 20’s’.

 

 

I’m the kind of person that always feel like a child. Yes, it is weird for me to imagine myself as a ‘grown-up adult’ but I guess I am. Rather, I am on my way to becoming one and, like everything in life, It is mostly more about the journey than the destination.

It’s funny looking back and remembering how badly I wanted to grow up faster so I could do the “fun things” grown-ups do (yes, working was included). From pretending I had my own desk made of boxes and phone books as my “work-to-do” to stealing some mom’s make up in order to look older (or a professional fulltime clown).

You’d better try to look busy before the universe laughs at you (what the heck, universe?). Besides, we are sold the message somehow that if you love someone, you must buy them something expensive today, if not, do you even like them? Cards, flowers, chocolates, and lingerie. It just drives me nuts. So if you don’t have ”the person” you’re pretty much excluded from the day. Or you can see it from my friend point’s of view

-Ale, I am just waiting for the tons of cheaper chocolate of the following day.

Yes, that’s the spirit, be my friend on this Valentine’s! Ok, maybe not. But the point is that no matter how much we try to tell our friends, mom, rest of the family, grandpa, grandma, (and then more grandma) that you are doing actually fine on your own without a relationship, you might suddenly start wondering at some point

Am I BROKEN?
