As much as I LOVE babies.. it is really weird to me that not only are most of my friends now married, many of them are reproducing like rabbits! My friends are on their second, some even third sets of kids..
Not to mention I had a dream last night that I was 27 years old and really stressed out about not being married. I should NOT be having such dreams! 27 isn't even old..
I may have to boycott Facebook for a little while if my attitude doesn't get any better. It's presenting a side of reality that just isn't all that real. When my DC friends start getting married then I may become a wee bit worried.. but the idea seems really premature for most of them.
And the responsibility factor is freaking me out as well. It occurred to me that I could very possibly move to Greenville when I graduate and live there for the rest of my life! No more big adventures? I don't think it's even the matter of needing to move to a new place, it's the option that is so attractive. I feel like the need to stay in one place and pay off debt is going to keep me from moving around. I guess I'll just have to embrace a new kind of adventure that involves one city. Or find random people who are out-of-staters to be friends with (to mix things up a bit). I refuse to settle before I have to! That's no fun at all.. boring life, minus the perks of a husband (and possibly kids?).. what's the point in that? Is there such thing as a 25 year old cat lady? OK, moving to Greenville does not have to mean that the fun, live for the moment lifestyle has to end.. I just don't know anyone in Greenville that's not married.. haha. Surely that's not the case with the whole young-adult population.
Anyway, call this a quarter life crisis.. so be it. Blogs are good places to vent so that I can make myself get back to my paper.. which should be my main concern right now anyway.
