Day 9, Getting Engaged

NOT ME sorry!!!! Phew that could have lead somewhere else. . . Today I was thinking back to when a colleague of mine thought I was brave just because I had moved to London on my own, into a house of strangers, into an industry that can change at any moment and to a job that I knew no one. This got me thinking, its not brave oh no, its pure stupidity I have no money,  I work long hours and I live in expensive London what the heck am I doing. When I could be back home in the country working a stable job and getting engaged….

Earlier this week I read a blog on doing so many things before your 23 instead of getting engaged. I have to say that even though I am nowhere near getting engaged. I have hardly done anything on that list and I am nearly 23, I disagree with the post. I just have to point out that when I do see that certain post on Facebook a bit of what I think is my soul is tarnished away, this is because of one thing I am proud to say, I get jealous.

In the past year I could possibly count 15 friends who have either got engaged or married who are 20 something. I am positive there are millions of twentysomthings, deciding to live their life before settling, this is what I am currently doing. However I yern to marry a person who wants to share all that fun with me, and there is probably a dwindling amount of twentyomting people who have the guts to make that next move in their life and get married.

I honestly don’t see how people think getting married at 23 is strange, or making the wrong decision. Come on people out there. At that age ,It is about creating a life for yourself and for some people marriage is their first step. My auntie and uncle got married when they were just 18 and 50 years later are still as strong as ever, they have loved their life, and I am proud of them. I could not be happier to see my childhood freinds making that move and again I admit I am jealous of the path they have chosen to take. In my eyes they are the brave ones making that giant leap and who are living life to the full.

To all my friends who are either getting engaged or married this year I wish you all the best.


I am not a great person at making points, I just had an opinion on this topic that’s all.
