We often hear that people begin to not like birthdays as they grow older, unlike when they were kids and loved their birthdays. To grow is part of life, and some people dislike growing older because they might be so much more things in their life that are yet to be accomplished. If we could ever achieve things in life at a certain age then there is nothing to fear. It could be building a successful career, establishing good financial health, starting a family, earning friendship, gaining experience and increasing our knowledge. To age gracefully with meaning and purpose; it is then worth celebrating birthday.
Once, there was a career seminar in high school that was intended to help us choose the right path so we wouldn’t waste time. The speaker said that we should at least aim to obtain a pre-u level cert or diploma by 21. Well, I have gained my Diploma in Architecture Technology and on my way to obtain a degree in the next year. Guess I’m on track..
Suangyee’s prominent plan:
“ If I wish to get married by 27, then I should get a boyfriend by 24. I think that I will need at least 2 years dating relationship before deciding to give whole life commitment. And how if I dont get a strike and find the perfect one immediately, considering if the relationship might fail and I need time to find another one?
So… how many years left for me? Time flies…. OMG!!!”
It’s not so much the idea of getting married early, but more the the issue of raising kids.
I am not sure if I still think that way.
Anyway, I am content with my current status and don’t intend to find someone just because I want my prominent plan to work.
Going out for christmas dinner tonight…
The city is so dead now. All the shops are closed. Worse to worst, we’ll go back for maggi.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUANG YEE!!!
