I counted thrice to make sure! Not that I doubt my Math skills that much..(I do, a li’l). But still, bloody 22! That’s how old I’ll be 3 weeks from now. Sucks, big time!
22! That’s old! Ancient!
My schooling years were beyond cool! Better than anybody could wish for. Still, I wouldn’t want to be stuck as a kid all my life. Love the freedom that comes with growing up. Neither do I want to go back to the stupid, messed up teen years –naah! I like my wiser, sorted self better. One of the best things about growing up is that ur thinking gets a lot less messed up.
But wait a minute, didn’t I start out by cribbing about growing up? But I can think of a 100 good things about being 22! Being able to make your own choices, getting over the silly crushes, finding all the mushy-mushy movies repulsive :D and oh yeah, Earning!
I love my bank account..the way it almost magically fills up at the end of every month, even though I heartlessly keep emptying its contents.. here ..there ..everywhere!..
So then why does 22 bug me so much??
Coz I realized time’s running out! 100s of things to do, and manybe not enough time.. All my ambitions are lying unfulfilled and I’m 22 already! I wanna accomplish those when I’m still young and not as a middle-aged aunty!!
Another freaky thing about crossing ur 20s (esp. if ur a gal) is that the whole world (except U of course) is suddenly interested in getting u married. I was a some function recently, and people were so unbelievably talking abt my marriage right in front of me! Happily oblivious to my disgusted embarrassment. “This guy’s doing this”.. “That guy’s earning that much”..” this is such a good match…”.. I almost said -“good match?? Shove it up ur…..!!” Almost.
All in all, I wont be as crazy as I usually am, for my birthday this time. I want it postponed.. at least until one of the things on my huge, (maybe over-ambitious) ‘to-do’ list gets knocked off.
PS : one of the things could be to get at least 10 comments on my blog posts.. That ‘fakeiplplayer’ guy gets 1000s on his posts! Maybe I should start insulting people on my posts like he does…. Hmmmm…. Maybe!
