I'm turning 26 today...I think this means I have to go and get a real job now. I think this means I should fold and iron my clothes after they come out of the dryer. Probably I should change stuff in my wardrobe and buy some 'adult' clothes as my mum says. By all rights, I should be married by now and thinking about what to name the kids I haven't conceived as yet. Hmmm. Something Bohemian. Something clever. Something original. But not too obscure so as to make his/ her life hell in middle school. So maybe - Sunniva or Tarja for a girl but for a boy? Don't know... hm, maybe Dag or Arjan? Or maybe just a lovely polish 'Jaś' and 'Małgosia'?
No. I am not quite there yet. The laundry is warm and welcoming when you wear it straight out of the dryer and I love my clothes and the fact I wear sneakers every day...
But I guess I should have numerous questions running through my mind like what will happen to me? What is expected of me? What should I already be doing? Some people think the answer is important becouse 'You're not getting any yonger and any prettier, be serious!'
But you know what? I don't give a shit. I'm still taking things one day at a time. I am eagerly waiting to face the surprises which life has for me this year. I don't feel 26. It's just a number. And the fact that I am that old doesn't make me have palpitations. I feel good! :-)
