What’s Up Zo? #14: Turning 24!

So Friday was my Birthday! Officially 24!


Well, it was…


I feel that every year the idea of my birthday, or more specifically getting older, changes slightly. I know to some of you, you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking that 24 is still a young age, and I’m thankful to live in a part of the world where being 24 is still pretty much viewed as just the beginning of life. However, I feel like my 20s has been such a weird time period for me so far because, more so than my teenage years ever felt, it feels very much like a period of transition. Though I know there’s always the possibility of changing my mind on things, I feel like time is running out and certain decisions would be so much harder to change if I don’t at least have an idea of the direction I want to go in. There’s so much I’m still learning about myself and I know that I could be 80 and still have things to learn about myself, especially in terms of my limits and confidence.

Here’s hoping I wear 24 well!funny-happy-birthday-cartoon-animated-gif

    Happy birthday! And yeah I feel like these days the 20’s (especially early 20’s) are such a transition time, so I don’t think you’re alone in feeling that. Hope you have a great 24th! 🙂

    Happy belated birthday! My husband turned 30 on Friday. 😀
    And the twenties are weird. Whatever you planned for earlier can all fall away and turn out so very different than you thought. Good or bad. So I get what you mean.

      Thank you! Happy Birthday to your husband!!! And thanks for understanding. I don’t want to build an idea about where my life should go and then have no flexibility in it but I also feel like things need a bit more structure, so we’ll see what that looks like. 🙂

    I don’t even really remember 24….!! For me the crisis birthday was 30 – it just felt so ridiculously old, and nothing in my life had turned out the way I thought it would, and I felt so behind on everything, like I should have had everything figured out by now! But as my mum always says, we shouldn’t complain too much about getting old, because it sure does beat the alternative! 😉
