19

Standard

When I turned 18 it felt like a conquest.

I could finally get a driver licence – which I haven’t got until now. I could finally drink legally – which I had already done, but never legally. I could enter that cool club without a fake I.D. – which I never got asked for, curiously, after I turned 18. I could leave the country without having to ask for permission, a could rebel, I could even end up in jail – none of which I did, because I am by definition a nice person. But now I could. And that’s more important than anything, right? The only was in which I took advantage of my new status as an ‘adult’ ( but honestly, that really is just a term, because how the hell am I an adult when I still have phosphorescent constellations on my walls and a huge poster with Johnny Depp on my door, that will never come down ) was to get a tattoo done. Of course, I could have asked for my parents’ signatures, but now I didn’t have to. So, in a way, I took as much as I could from all those newly discovered perks. Oh, and I got a summer job – only for those over 18, okay? AND a really cool credit card, that got me to spend like a maniac. ( quick notice here: credit cards – really dangerous. Seems like you have tons of money and then you have to pay 3 euros for a snack at Paul and the waiter tells you you’re card is empty… )

When I’ll turn 20, it’ll be a change.

And it’s there, you know, it’s visible. You change the prefix. You are officially cool. You are the new generation. Or, at least that’s how I imagine it. Twenty is nice. It’s a milestone, it has a nice ring to it. You’re definitely not a child anymore, at 20, but you can still get your mom to help you out, because you’re a newbie to the real world.

But today I turned 19.

It’s such a weird age, if you ask me. I feel like I haven’t even got an age at all. Actually, I feel like those depressed middle-aged women, because now I am the oldest teenager – not cool enough to wander with teenagers ( not that I would ever want to relieve that experience ever again ) and not old enough to be taken seriously by adults. I don’t even know what to do with my age. I can enjoy all the perks of 18, but they got a little dust on them now, because time already passed and I have been able to be all grown up for a year now. Plus, there are no songs for this age ( feel free to contradict me and suggest a really cool playlist, but the point is, there are no super-known songs for this age) because, probably, even the always imagining lyricists have nothing to say about it. By all means, let’s just all wait for that change of prefix, or be nostalgic about the freshness of adulthood.

However you see it, 19 is nothing but a longer while to reach your feared and hopeful twenties.

26 November

Standard

A day like any other to most of you, no doubt. But to me… Well it is my birthday. I couldn’t just let the day pass without acknowledging this 😀
I am turning 16 years old. Which is little, I know, but right now it seems a lot. I am probably making no sense at all … But you see the shows like ‘My super sweet sixteen’ when you are little and you think, God, those kids are so big. There is so much til then. and apparently there wasn’t. It’s here, and happily I don’t feel different. At all.

So… If anyone else is born today I found some interesting facts about this day 😊

If You Were Born Today, November 26:

Although you possess considerable common sense, you do question accepted rules. You are a seeker, yet your feet are on the ground. You want to create your own destiny, and bumps and bruises along the way simply contribute to your growth, and you know it. Your emotions are up and down, although others may not always see this until they know you well. Your nature is irrepressible, yet you manage to earn others’ respect at the same time. Famous people born today: Charles Schulz, Rich Little, Tina Turner, Natasha Bedingfield, Robert Goulet.

Birthday or not, have a nice day!! ✌

Here comes the sun

Standard

Summer’s here, for over a month now. My mother hates the laziness that took over me these pasts few days. I guess the heat just slows me down completely.

Isn’t time a curious thing? There’s always too much or too less of it. Isn’t it mind blowing how an hour can pass by like a second or sometimes like days?

Someone once said : “Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back.”
  I’ve come to my own conclusion. That time here to remind us, that we are finite, no matter how grand we feel. Every second, however small it may seem, matters. It sounds very cliche-ic but I find it important that we cherish every single moment.

Time is curious, and weird and mostly impossible to understand. But we are the ones that rule it and we must take advantage of that. Otherwise, if we can’t control it, it’s overwhelming.

And here, I’ve wasted other 20 minutes, still on the internet. Still doing absolutely nothing productive. Still sitting down, listening to some previously made playlist, writing about something so well known by everyone.Image
