Killing Time, A Rambling

Hello lovelies,

This isn't going to be a beauty post. So if you don't want to read my semi-pessimistic thoughts then I suggest not clicking the "Read more" button. But if you do, then thank you for taking the time to read this!



It's July 1st. Though to you Aussie girls I'm sure it's already the next day. Anyhoo. Six months have passed this year. Six months. While I don't think it's time wasted, it sure has gone by quickly.




I was planning on writing an essay on how I wish things could've done differently blah blah blah but I changed my mind. I don't want to dwell on these trivial but at the same time dire thoughts. Oh well. I think I'll go read or watch some anime to clear my mind.

It's funny how in high school we planned our lives accordingly. Go to school, get a job, get married, have babies, all by the time we're 25. I'm 22 now and yeah, that shit is NOT happening anytime soon. With the exception of school and work. Though I probably won't finish school until I'm 30, but heck who cares what age you finish. I don't want school to be just about a degree. I want to actually LEARN. I hate the education system and how they milk kids outta $$. It's ridiculous, Is it a school or a corporation? Or both?

Sorry I know I'm rambling. I need my thoughts put somewhere though to....I don't know. Just because.

But yeah totally not having kids in the next 3 years. What a scary thought. Why are 16 year old girls brainwashed into thinking that way??

Alright now I'll stop before I get carried away.

  5. Everything and everyone we are around imprints a plan into our minds. It's up to us to see through the dream and find our own want.

  6. Hey there Maddi3! I'm sure you're not worried, but I'll say it just the same. Don't worry! :) You still have plenty of time at the tender age of 22.

    I don't know why girls think everything has to happen by 26 either, but I had those exact same thoughts throughout college. I was worried. I had a timeline and everything. I almost settled for my first bf just because he was around when I was 23 years old and I just knew I had to have my first child by the time I turned 26.

    I'm so glad I didn't settle! I met Mr. P soon after. We spent our 20s getting our higher education and starting our career paths and working our way up. What's most important, we needed our 20s to develop OUR core values that would work for our relationship and our future kids.

    So, don't worry too much if life isn't going as planned. The most important thing I can tell you, which I'm sure you've heard, is to enjoy your 20s. Enjoy every day and don't get too bogged down by thoughts of a timeline. Your dreams will come true one day and they will make you happier than you can imagine right now. :-)

  7. You're only 22! Have a career ahead of kids ! Who wants to be changing nappies huh? I think the best way is not to plan your life, but just enjoy it and take it as it comes, I mean, it would be boring if it was all planned out wouldn't it ? :)

    2. Haha thank you Sophie! I realized this awhile ago. But everything involving time kinda hit me at a six month point. I'm watching friends get married engaged and having children and I am extremely happy for them. I just thought in the whole "what if" sense and kinda spooked myself. I get lost in my thoughts sometimes. It's awesome and horrible at the same time lol

      I will def check your blog! Thank your ma'am! <3

  10. It's true, when you're 16, all you want to do is grow up and you think 25 is SO old. I remember being that age and thinking the same thing! It's crazy how life changes, huh. You're still so young at 22 and you have the rest of your life to accomplish your goals. :)

  12. love a little bit of ramble! :P but I agree with you, seems like there's a 'time limit' to do things right? but meh, you're doing it the right way, actually enjoying your degree! People are generally doing things a little later anyway, like marrying and having kids in their late 30s. but Hey! for women, it means we can at least keep our hot bods till then right? ;) muahah

  14. I don't think that all the 16-year old girls (I'm 16 :D) are raised with this idea. I am aware I want to have a family at some point but I am going for med school so that will be a 6-year college course for me (that's the system in Romania) and another 5 years of being a resident. So yeah, I'm aware of what's ahead of me and of course you can manage to have children in your years as a resident but that means being 25 or up for me and I'm sort of okay with this, thinking that I will be able to help so many people once I am a doctor.

    Anyways, great blog and interesting post! I was wondering if you would like to follow each other?

    Let me know! Kisses,

    1. Hi Mary, I don't mean all 16 year olds....it was a generalization based on what society as well as media teaches girls at a young age. I feel it even starts before 16, that's the age most people begin to think about their future etc as they reach the peak of high school. That being said I wish you the best of luck with med school! I think it's amazing when someone knows what they want and go for it!

  16. I think that it's important just to move at your own pace in life. Don't let societal or parental pressures (or even the pressures you place on yourself) to adhere to some kind of schedule affect your enjoyment of the moment, now. I do share some of your thoughts though, especially as I get older and approach my mid-20s. I'm nowhere near getting married, owning a house and having children - in fact, the prospect of those things is somewhat alien and intimidating. I guess a part of me still wants to live out my youth with as little responsibilities as possible and with minimal things tying me down - because I have the rest of my life for that. Having said that, much of my life has adhered to the "plan", like graduating high school, graduating uni, finding a full time job. There's the sense of needing to fulfill the next step and find a guy, settle down, etc. I guess it's about being open to the possibilities and not feeling too pressured to live a certain way.

    1. Thank you! It's nice feeling like I'm not the only one going through this. While I have many friends who are going through similar situations like mines and several who are going on to be getting married, having babies, buying homes, finishing school in a timely manner, I'm amazed by all the responses I've gotten from this post. It's great hearing (reading) everyone's thoughts and opinions in regards to this!

  17. It's great to see you thinking differently from everyone else <3 don't worry, it's there lives, if they want to rush things, it's they life rushed x

    1. TThanks Seryna :) Whether people are rushing or not I have come to the realization to enjoy life for what it is and not to feel put down that I can't keep up in pace on certain aspects. Where I might be lagging I feel like I make up in other ways. As cheesy as it sounds live life to it's fullest! (Ironic as my original post was written in a semi-pessimistic mood, everyone's comments here as well as a few discussions with close friends the past couple days have really changed my mood, go figure!)

  18. ya I feel the same way as you, I recently broke up with my boyfriend for 4 years whom I thought we were going to get married and went through that freaking out phase, but sometimes it just doesn't work out like the expected and I do believe that I am better off happy and single rather than attached and not!
