I can honestly say that I'm terrified. In less than a month, I'll be turning 28 years old plus I'll be giving up a comfortable career and leaving my friends/officemates as I move to a big company. It feels like 2010 again, where my so called quarter life crisis happened, but with less drama..
Three weeks ago, I wrote this on my planner and today I'm still anxious about being a year older. The good news is I'm less terrified because the "new work" part is in progress. As Mr Alvin, the New Joiners Orientation speaker said, "you'll feel it if its for you" and indeed, I'm claiming that I've made the right decision.
Age is just a number, they said. Come to think of it, what's the fuss about 27 and 28!? Its just 1 year difference but honestly, TWENTY-EIGHT sounds intimidating. The society, my family and even my 23 year old self would have a lot of expectations for the 28 year old Mei.
Note to self. With pressures coming from different directions, the only solution to stay sane is to love my own phase and embrace that age is not an obstacle to overcome but rather a stage to be enjoyed. =)
