We all hit that awkward age. It’s our early 20’s. You know, the time when half of our friends are getting toasted every weekend and even some week days & the other half of our friends are getting married and having babies.
Then there’s me. I fit in neither of those categories. Most of the time I’m in bed way before 10. I go out ever few weekends but I don’t get drunk any more. (I really like not being hungover) I’m more single than I’ve ever been. Literally my mom said “you need to start dating, Kailey. You really aren’t getting any younger” ouch Babies freak me out, the thought of a first date makes me panic & having to shave my legs or wash my hair makes me exhausted. I would just rather be laying in bed with either a beefy 5 layer burrito or a glass of cab. There’s really no in between, is there? I either binge watch crime shows or binge read a good book. And I’m okay with that.
But should I be???
Should I feel excitement about swiping left or right on a dating app? Should I want to go party in a pasture?
Does watching Chicago P.D. or reading Megan Miranda’s latest book on a Saturday night make me a prude?
Does working 40 hours a week or spending over 10 hours on homework make me lame?
Am I a dud because I cherish my sleep over staying up past midnight?
If you answered yes, then I’m sorry you feel that way about me but I’m sure your life is fun. Sometimes I live vicariously through your pictures and videos, but I don’t envy you anymore.
If you feel the way I do, then know that you are okay! Our time is coming. Chasing success, closing a chapter, rewriting the scripts. We’re doing our own thing, on our own schedule.
Who cares if it’s not the popular opinion? Who cares if people don’t want to be us. We want to be us & that is all that matters.
We wake up, we kick ass and we even eat pizza. IT’S OKAY.
Never feel bad about being you.
