The end of an Era

Something wicked is coming my way, it is looming, in fact it is moving at a rather fast rate towards my world. ~(Imagine a meteor fast approaching Earth)~ The time of the impact will be at precisely 1 minute past midnight- on 5th of May 2013. For that is the time when I turn 26.

Since the age of 18, I've been glad to leave behind one age and move to the next. But this year, I feel like I'll be leaving behind my youth and becoming an adult. Of course, there is still a reassurance to be had in being the youngest one in my friendship circle.

So why so gloomy?
I can no longer take part in youth projects, which is slightly devastating. But I won't be the last (young) person to feel this way as youth projects are only for young people up to the age of 25.
There's so much I wanted to do and now I won't be able to achieve it unless new members to the youth group decide to do it. The future doesn't look hopeful for those ideas. I am, however, glad that we were able to finish a short film about mental health awareness. That is my parting gift.

Volunteering has always been one of the most important factors in my life. For me, it's similar paying rent to the world for being alive and living on this planet, and living in my community. It comes naturally to me. So, turning 26 means the end of volunteering as a young person. I really do feel like a part of me is dying, but I know that another part of me will come into fruition
I'm not sure what I'll do next with my free time. But I am hopeful that I'll find something equally if not more fun and enjoyable.

On a positive note, turning 26 also means I've completed the first year of university! I am thrilled, but still have 2 essays to hand in, which as ever I should be doing right now -___- but a girl can procrastinate.

Until next time,
