So people in my year at school have started turning 25. And it’s really scary.
I was having a Facebook scroll, as you do, and caught a glimpse of ‘Happy 25th Birthday’ but wait what he’s my age? 25? Oh shit.
I’m 25 next Birthday and I’m not ok with it. I know it sounds trivial, and to the 25 and overs reading this – sorry for my whinging. It marks the end of an era for me, my early twenties. Not that much will change, I’m hardly a wild early twenty something (clinging on to early until that clock strikes midnight on my birthday) it just makes adulthood all that more real.
And it’s not that I don’t enjoy life as it is, I suppose I just feel the urge to tick more off my ‘to do in life list’ as time goes pretty damn quick, apparently. Yes aware I’m being dramatic but 30 seems not so far away anymore and I’m almost certain I should still be 19.
You also have the endless ‘when are going to get engaged’ and my favourite ‘when are you going to buy a house’ hahaha cute. I think Chloe summed it up perfectly in her post, so go have a lil look at that. Do people know how expensive existing is?! The idea of a mortgage terrifies me slightly, as does marriage, as does kids. JUST LET ME BE YOUNG.
So for now I’ll just be doing my thing, exploring as much of the world as possible and *trying* not to freak out about turning 25. Age is just a number and all that, right?
So whilst we’re on the topic of time (smooth) I wanted to show you this little beaut of a watch from British brand Newgate watches. Isn’t it fancy? There appears to be an abundance of new watch brands flooding the market at the moment, but I think Newgate really stands out from these. The designs are quirkier and offer something a little different to the rest. The quality is premium, and the watches really are a statement piece. Christmas is coming guys…(sorry I’m one of those KEEN Christmas peoples). Shop the above Blip watch here.
*The featured Newgate watch was kindly gifted to me for review, but opinions are mine all mine!
