So my 25th birthday was approaching and it was the day I was dreading. The day when you can no longer tick 18-24 boxes, you’re in your mid twenties and what you’re 25 and still live at home? Happy 2nd February for me! It is daunting because I always said I would probably have children by the time I was 25 – oh how I laugh at myself now. That’s not going to happen any time soon as I feel like I still have so much to do in my life before I can no longer be selfish. When I say selfish, I mean an adult.
There are quite a few negatives to being 25 (mainly the tick boxes issue) but let’s look at the positives.
I have always wanted afternoon tea because it is more sophisticated and ‘grown up’ so that’s what I decided to do. I absolutely loved afternoon tea at the Lakeside Bistro and it was only £13.95 each! It was nice to do something completely different and the food tasted great minus the egg sandwiches. It was a shame the table was set out in a line because it made it quite difficult speaking to people. So apologies if I didn’t get to speak to you that much!
What are the bonuses of being 25?
- I’m no longer classed as a young driver so my insurance should hopefully drop for the summer!
- People take you more seriously, you’ve got a few years of experience behind you so you can tackle things.
- Your friends are starting to get married – weddings galore yay!
- It is okay to stay in and watch Netflix because you can’t handle it like you used to.
I am struggling to think of more so if you’ve turned 25 what have been your highlights?
