Hi. This is Mermanda from Cusp of Normal. I'm over here on Holly's blog today for the 20 Something Bloggers' blog swap. This is nutty, huh, guys?
Listen, I have a confession. I'm coming upon an important birthday very soon. Next week I'll be 25. I keep thinking about this and wonder if it's maybe time to breakdown and have a quarter-life crisis. But then I stop and imagine said breakdown, and to be honest, I am just not sure I have the energy for that kind of thing right now.
When I think of quarter-life crisis, I think of the traditional stereotypes for midlife crisis... red corvette, piercings, leather jackets... because let's face it... 40 is the new 20. Or something. Don't they say that? And that makes 20 the new black. Wait. I'm getting confused here. Let's back up.
What I'm trying to say is, I think I want to get my nose pierced. Not a bull ring or anything. Just something very subtle and mysterious. Almost like a tiny fairy ever-so-gently kissed my nose and left behind a small trace of glitter. Yes. That's the best way I can explain what I'm envisioning.
There's just one problem with having a quarter-life crisis. I don't feel old. At all. I'm still a total child. I mean, I am scared to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I am terrified of the basement, and I still carry a torch for Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
You really should not still possess 'N Sync stickers AND be allowed to have a quarter-life crisis. So I guess it is time to make some choices.
(I can still keep the hello kitty stickers, though, right?)
