“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.” ~ Mark Twain

 

In just a few days, all of China will be celebrating my birthday (or maybe the fireworks are for China’s National Day, who knows?).

As many, many people have pointed out to me this week, I will soon be a quarter of a century old. This is also apparently time for my “quarter life crisis”. I know it will be hard for many of you to believe that I am turning 25, considering my last two blog posts were about Harry Potter. Haha.

My past few birthdays haven’t really made much of an impact (who cares about being 23 or 24?), but I think that 25 is fairly significant since each day will bring me closer to 30 than to 20.

I’ve look up the thoughts of others about turning 25 (while I was looking up a quote for my title), and for the most part it seems people panic at 25 that they haven’t accomplished all they had thought they would by the time they turned 25.

My worries are at the other end of the spectrum. I have accomplished everything I’ve ever wanted to accomplish. I was made fun of a lot in high school/college because I always had a plan going forward for the next 5 years (even if the plans occasionally changed, the end goal was always the same). My plans have always focused around school and getting my Masters and becoming a librarian. Now that I’ve done all that, I have nothing else to plan! I was so focused on that one goal, I never made any other goals!

So, that’s my goal for 25! To find some new goals! Haha.
