it’s still april 9th according to my sleeping times. that being said, i will be 25 years old in exactly two weeks. i never got in the right mindset about coming into my mid-twenties and i think that’s hindering me now. last year i was super busy and didn’t even realize my birthday was coming up until like three weeks before. all of the sudden i’m in the “mid-twenties” range and i was freaking out. like what the hell happened to my early twenties? like, that’s it; there were officially no excuses for not acting like a grown up. yesterday i was a (slightly) irresponsible high schooler. now it’s like if i don’t have a degree, wife, kids, and well respected job i’m way behind everyone else my age. one out of four ain’t bad, right? i still don’t feel like a grown up in a lot of ways. maybe it’s that i’m feeling rushed into an adult life i don’t feel i was ever really prepared for. or maybe i just want to hold on to excuses so that i can be as irresponsible as i want to.

regardless of the reasons, i’m feeling old
