The Quarter Life Crisis.

It's that time of the year again and surprisingly this year, I really do not relish turning the big 2-5.

I had actually wanted to hold birthday parties this year to "celebrate" the quarter life crisis like clubbing at St James or even a MacDees party but somehow or rather, the "happy" mood just fizzled.

As per my yearly tradition, here's some updates of what has happened within my 1 year of being 2 dozens worth of nadnuts.

I feel kinda loserly being 25 because I have no job, no boyfriend and no degree (yet). WTF.

Studies:

I should be able to get that piece of paper soon, graduation ceremony would be in October should I pass all of my exams.

Work:

I left AsiaSoft, tried a stint in SingTel doing Corp Comms and left. Does Starblogging consider as a job? After SingTel, I decided to take a break and just study full time. After I'm done with my degree, I'm gonna start searching for a job. To be honest, I do not regret taking some time off,Β  just that it's a horrible year to graduate and start searching for a job. Oh well.

Family:

Same old. Same neurotic family. I lost my oldest cat last year and it was heartbreaking.

Love:

This may come as a shock to some of you. Tiger and I parted ways very early this year.Β  It was a hard decision to make but it has to come sooner or later. Some of my friends were taking bets that we will "patch" (i hate that word!) back together sooner or later. I really do not know. Maybe yes, maybe we'll just be friends forever.

Health:

I'm proud to say I actually took up a gym membership! I even paid for sessions with a physical trainer! It was fun and good. Am itching to head back to the gym after my exams! After exercising, I feel healthier, there has been less cases of me falling sick. πŸ™‚

Friends:

Removed some toxic friends. I don't see a need keeping such friends that are insensitive and intent in aggravating you and everyone else. The friends that matter are still there and a heartbeat away. Thank you.

Blogging:

I've made many friends from blogging and it has been a great experience so far. Thankfully I make some money from this blog which helps to keep me afloat during this bummer/slacker year I took.

It's kinda scary being 25 and yet accomplishing nothing much. If things had been different, I would have gotten my degree, engaged or planning to get married and drawing some income. But I make my own decisions and stick with it. I believe everything happens for a reason.

Thanks to everyone and anyone who has wished me a very happy birthday. :) As mentioned last year: birthdays just symbolises another year closer to the grave (to me). so love like you have never loved before, eat like you have never eaten before, live life like every day is your last.

Much love,
nadnut

(Eh My birthday, I get to act chio a bit right?, yes, I use the word ACT. :P)

    I think you have accomplished much at your age. Not everything is measured by when you got your degree or when you got married or when you got your stable job.

    You have become an popular blogger and earn a little income by being a blogger. You have grown wiser in the affairs of love and you have travelled to so many places. So you see: you have done much at an age of 25. πŸ™‚ Some people are still clueless about their lives at that age.

    Happy Birthday, girl. May all your wishes come true and all the best for your future endeavors. πŸ™‚
