So now days, most of my friends are in that FAMILY mode, baby, boyfriend/ /husband. I notice now that everyone is getting married…at a young age. I think my 20’s should be spent single, or dating. Why do people feel like this tender age of mid 20’s is the time to settle down and start a family? Have they not seen Sex in the City??? I am single, with an occasional date, and loving the freedom, free time and FUN!!! some people just want to feel like they’ve accomplished something I guess. Why not accomplish financial goals, or career goals, or educational goals? So when you return to your highschool reunion at the age of 27 or 28 the scene plays out as follows:
Them: Hey what have you been up to?
You: Oh I’ve been married for 3 years, we have 3 kids, and I work at (enter lame ass job here)—-because you have put no focus on your career, so you must have a lame ass job
Them: Oh really, how sweet
You: How about yourself, any kids?
Them: Nope, just a boyfriend/fiance that loves me and a bangin’ ass job!!! (Snaps fingers and walks away)
You: sit at the table all night sipping Ginger Ale (because you are pregnant with the 4th child) wallowing in your Shoulda, Coulda, Wouldas.
My high school reunion should play out like this:
Them: So what have you been up to?
Me: Working, Traveling, Shopping, Dating,-A little of everything
Them: Oh (Mouth drops open)
People, lighten up, you still have a life to live, you can still have kids up until menopause…they might be healthy then too (pray about it). All I’m saying is don’t be in such a rush to live out the “American Dream” to the point where you can’t live out your Single Lady Dreams!!!
