Instead of writing a whole post about something you guys would enjoy like blogging advice that could have hypothetically changed your life/blogging career, I decided to be a little more self absorbed than I already am and tell you a little story about something that happened to ME at the mall the other day.
About a week ago, I had to go to the mall to do a bit of shopping and pick up some stuff and it wasn’t the best week ever. I was sort of exhausted, had a lot going on and for some reason my hair just decided to be at it’s worst behaviour so it’s safe to say I wasn’t feeling my best. Plus, this trip to the mall was unexpected so it sort of got in the way of what I had planned for the afternoon which was taking a very long nap. It was hot, humid, my allergies were all over the place, my shoes that I wear all the time were biting for whatever reason and I was just walking from one store to the other trying to get this over with.
As you can guess I wasn’t in the best mood ever and I wasn’t exactly feeling myself. I was pretty dressed down- I was wearing an oversized t-shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers. As I walked to the next store these two girls who I’m assuming were teenagers told me they liked my shirt! I was super surprised so at first I was like what’s happening but I think I managed to say thank you lol. It was such a nice experience and made my day so much better especially since it was so unexpected.
I know this may not seem like a big deal but I’m almost 25 now which is quite far from my teenage years. Although I try to keep up with the latest trends and stuff I’m not too great at it and to be quite honest I wasn’t even good at keeping up with the trends when I was an actual teenager. BUT as an adult a compliment from teenagers is actually a really big deal! It proves for once and for all that I am indeed still hip and happening…
I’ve been feeling a little old with the grey hair coming in and the wrinkles on my forehead appearing (thanks university). I know it’s dumb to feel old at 24 but I think it is actually hardest in your twenties. One minute you’re the teen who hates everything adults like, know all the latest music/trends/slang, consider yourself cool and feel like that’s never going to change and the next minute you’re an adult that your teen self would probably not even recognise. In your twenties you’re stuck between being an adult and a kid and it’s so weird. I don’t know if that makes sense to anyone else in their twenties or if I’m just rambling but that’s just how I feel at 24 I guess.
So, yeah, it was nice to feel like a teenager again or at least like I can still fit in with teenagers (I absolutely can not) even if it was just for a few minutes. The moral of the story I guess is that if you have something nice to say to someone please go ahead and say it. It could really make their whole day. With the way things are in the world we could all use some kind words in our lives and we could all try to be a little nicer to one another.
