I Am Turning 24 This Year And It Is Freaking Me Out

In three months from now, I will turn 24 and it is freaking the hell out of me. As much as I force myself to think that it will be just another year for me, I know that it is far from true. I am sure that turning 24 is a big deal everywhere, but the country I am in has made it all the more difficult for me. Before this starts sounding like a rant, let me tell you why turning 24 for me, a woman living in India, is not easy:

1. I am neither in the below 23 'cool' age group, nor in the above 25 'responsible' one. This feeling of being caught in-between is not fun at all.

2. The 'grown up world' is scary and I feel I am not ready for it yet.

3. I have a job, but a promising career? Not so sure.

4. Half my friends are married already and the other half are set to tie the knot this year.


5. One of them even has a baby and would you believe that woman is younger than me!
The thought of having another human inside me is just so scary!

6. If that wasn't enough, my neighbour's weird daughter just got engaged to a super-talented, tall, dark and handsome guy.
I am no less weird, but she eats chocolate with salt. Yes, salt!

7. And here I am, hopelessly single, still figuring out how relationships work.
And the only thing I have figured out so far is that I suck at them.

8. The cute guys are all too young for me, and the hot ones are too old.
