Picking up speed, cause Im over the hill!

If you dont know where your heading, but trying reallyy really hard to get there, will you still make it?

Screw Mid-life crisis. I have a quarter life crisis staring me in the face. A 24 year old in the guise of a 26 yr old who'll be 27 in 2010. Damn. I know Baz Luhrman said some of the coolest people he knows at 40 dont know what they want from their lives, but I sure as hell dont want to be one of them! Do I really want to trust someone whose greatest piece of advice was 'wear sunscreen' ? (I don't even do that. Im totally done for)


I have spent the last few months of my life focusing on direction. Changing lanes. Taking a leap. Yet today so many things are uncertain. Very unsettling. The next few months (years maybe) are an offshoot of the next 2 months. An algorithm which will determine which one of the two very conrasting lives Ill lead this year. And no Im not getting married. Which is another thing. 4 friends have fallen prey to the 'arranged marriage' bug last year ('09), most will be married this year ('10). one of whom, is my best and oldest friend. The one i know since 2nd grade and has been with me through thick and thin. It sure will be strange watching her sail off into the sunset, for the first time in a direction so far from me. She was one constant in my life since the past 15 years, one I'm used to being around in happy and sad sitatuions alike.

So, hello 2010. I have great expectations from you, personally and otherwise. I promise to work hard, strive for the things I want, and learn to relax a little more. Just give me a sign!

If this is how you're flipping out on turning 26, I wonder what you'll be like at 30!!

BTW...I was thinking whether you'll be married at 30...or married with kids? :p

Mumbai Mirror is the culprit ;-)

Hi Serendipity,

I turn 27 too this year but couple of months before you do and damn I so know what you are feeling , why you are feeling the same. I have no idea what is in store for for me but I do know that I am gonna take one day at a time and that I am sick of seeing my plans falling through and not working out the way I wanted them to. And yes I ain't talking about marriage too. Marriage is far cry right now while the whole world is in this race to the altar I am still trying to figure how to get into this race in the first place. ;-)

A sign? Okay. Here goes. Open any book at random with your eyes closed. Read the sentence your finger falls on. You might get an answer.

dilema's are so much fun... esp when time is not on our side :-)

@eye-in-sty-in - Yes Yes, just like roller coasters are fun, when your harness is not fastened properly.
