(written before I turned 24)
I’m fast approaching 24. Never in a million years would I have pictured my life as it is now. I never imagined I would be in banking let alone enjoying it. I thought by now I would have met Mr Right and we would be planning a wedding for next year. The age to get married was 25 now the question is do I even want to get married. Looking back to high school days, I remember how I wanted to study journalism and eventually read the news on CNN. But I had never really picture my life after university.
I never imagined I would start a blog where I share so honestly and write from the heart at the risk of having complete strangers, so-called friends and foes read about me and come to their conclusions of what kind of person I am.
Now I find that my goals have changed and I want to work with women and children. I want to be an advocate and fight for their rights and do my share in creating a better world.
So much has happened in these 24 years; views have changed, new ideologies have been adopted, hearts have been broken, bodies have been tattooed, new tastes in music & fashion have emerged. A lot of growing up has been done and yet more change is still on the way.
I wonder how this post will look when I am in my mid thirties…
