Lazy Days and Mondays: Ageing is weird.

The thought of ageing, legitimately terrifies me. With age comes wisdom, but it also comes with expectations. Get a job, learn to drive, graduate, get married, have a litter of children, buy house, go on holiday, baby sit the grand children, and then before you know it, you're six foot under, pushing up daisies. You're supposed to behave in certain ways, act like you have a clue about what's going on around you, know who you are and what you want to do, but what happens when you don't want to do any of that? When you don't know who you are? or what you want to do? You're called childish, silly, immature, "she's just a little.... I can't put my finger on it."

We spend so much time as kids wishing we could grow up. Our families and schools teach us valuable life lessons for the road ahead, but no one prepares us for handing life if you don't want any of the things that are expected of you. You're automatically stereotyped if you don't want to get married whilst you're practically still a teenager, or if you don't want to go to university, or if you don't want kids until you're at least thirty. It's just weird, we're expected to do all of these things, just because we're getting older. It's become the norm to just go to school, have a baby, go to work, have a grandchild, and then die. Why can't it be the norm to want something else, to want something more!?

I couldn't do it, I can't do it, I won't do it. There is more to life than that. We were not brought forth on to this earth, just to work, buy things, and then die. There is so much out there, and I want a piece of it.
