Totally Random

I’l be a year...23 to be precise this weekend...where are the May babies in the house???

Anyways was just reflecting on my life...i was promoted at work last week, the pay is gets better by the second, i bought a brand new car this year, am months away (by God’s grace) from being professionally chartered.

I seem to have achieved a lot for a girl my age but there is this nagging restlessness i cant shake off...this dissatisfaction, anxiousness ...am sorta on edge or is it bored... like waiting for what next..

Its just annoying cuz i cant place my hand on the cause..if its my job, my parents, my boyfriend, my car, my house ....LOL

Maybe its the numerous aso-ebi i keep buying, maybe its cuz my closest girlfriend just put to bed at 4am this morning...

Do i want to get married...NO..Not yet...i don’t want kids now...so what is my problem....why do i spend a lot of time these days thinking about marriage and kids and scaring the living shit out of myself...

My life is lacking excitement...

I need a new job so that i can get a life...

I guess am having quarter life crisis

Anyways make una join me thank papa God for an extra year and his never ending mercies...

If nothing else am sure he truly luvs me...

Happy birthday in advance & congrats on the promotion/pay rise/new car.

I get your feeling of dissatisfaction, i got my AAT qualification @ 18, finished uni @ 19, 3 pay rises last year, go on nice vacations but for the life of me am still DEPRESSED. It feels like something is missing and no one seems to understand.

While looking for something to motivate me or d next challenge to conquer i found solace in reading the bible.

It's helped me alot in the past few weeks

AT 23!!!!!!!!!

I wish I could say that for myself at 23!

Happy birthday girl.......you are restless about everything being in order- you know, achievement wise....you better love it as it is, you really don't want any drama.

As for the marriage thing, .....I guess your mind is telling you what's next on your life's agenda, then again, maybe a lot of people around you are getting hitched, so your subconcious is taking note of it.

Congrats my lady. Hmmm marriage can wait, think of stuff you can do that can give you excitement. Masters degree? And since you mention changing job, search carefully and see where this takes you too.

You are in the age of restlessness if I can say so but be focus my lady

sleekiest said...

Happy Belated Birthday. And congrats on everything.
I think you've got your head in the right place.. but I wouldn't worry about the restlessness. That's a sign of our youth, you've done so much for yourself already but there's still a million things you have to do (besides marriage, of course. Focus your energy on one

QMoney said...
