Old Before My Time

Turning twenty really did make me grow up in a way that I never thought I would. I moved on to the next chapter in my life, left extra baggage behind, focused on people who actually cared about me and took important steps towards my education and career path. I've recently seen a lot of young girls calling themselves or their friends, 'Grandma's' on social media. People joke about this, but is it really a bad thing? These so-called Grandma's are the girls who are staying in on the the weekend to organise their week ahead, to steer their body away from binge drinking and getting a good night's sleep. Does that really sound so terrible?

I recently read this article by Flo Perry and it made me laugh at how relatable it was. I've only just started my twenties and I already agree with the majority of the points made. I sometimes wonder if me not being able to stay out past 1am or taking my big, warm coat out with me makes me boring? But, now I have actually had time to sit down and think about it, I think it makes me sensible... Sensible doesn't always have to be boring... I have my moments!

In my mind I've grown out of going clubbing every student night and Saturday. Instead I like to go for drinks with my boyfriend and friends to the local and get some food to go with my drink of choice. Or even have a night in, watch a film with popcorn and cup of tea.

For months, I've considered myself the boring friend, but in reality I really don't think I'm alone in feeling this way and I'm so glad. I wish I could stay out until 5am dancing all night and wear heels, no tights and a strapless dress... But, I'm just over it. I'm starting to plan my future and definitely do not need a dreaded hangover whilst completing internship applications or updating my CV.

You might say I've grown up too quickly, but I believe that the twenties are the career-shaping years and I really do need to get planning my path in life. If this makes me a Grandma, pass me the knitting needles!

Do you embrace your inner Grandma? Let's be friends!

  1. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. This is just me summed up in a post. After going out so much I really enjoy getting in to bed early and getting a great nights sleep before work haha. I think it's great you feel so grown up at 20 :)

  2. I love how much I can relate to this. I'm 21 and haven't been out in months and when I do I hate the 2 day hangover so it puts me off going out even more
