Relationships and Life at 21

Young adulthood is messy. There's stuff going on left, right and center, differences all around and in between is our attempt to stabilise our social lives and relationships. Let me just say, it isn't easy. Life used to be simple and organised, now it's convoluted and chaotic. As we are now busy figuring ourselves out... Continue Reading →

Age 21 ‘The Bit In-between’

Can someone explain to me how one minute people are children, running about giving their parents a headache, then the next they're adults with responsibilities, giving their parents grandchildren? How does that happen so quickly? What about the awkward in-betweeny bit that is hardly mentioned? What's that bit? Oh, it's young adulthood. My life. The... Continue Reading →

I was not coming back the same person I was when I left. I essentially lived another life and no one knew anything about it. The... Continue Reading →

You’ll Get There

I'm sorry for repeating myself, but it is true. Life at 21 is essentially an awkward period... Continue Reading →

Young, Dumb and Broke

A song I can relate to. I'm young, I'm dumb and damn am I broke. Being young means being foolish, making mistakes and living for the moment. Later comes the burdens so for now lets just be young. But that comes with a catch; while we are young, we are dumb. We love too quickly... Continue Reading →
