Not At All.....I'm 35 - not old by any means, but no longer young either.... I remember being a kid, thinking that those who were in their 30's had one foot in the grave, past it, too old to have fun anymore... I had no concept of age as a child, but then who does... but whilst I had no concept of age, I also had dreams of what I would be doing in my 30's.... and none of them have come to fruition.
Don't get me wrong, I love my life, I have experienced a lot and am excited about the experiences yet to come... but, if being honest, I imagined myself being married, settled down with 2.4 children, white-picket fence and dog - OK, perhaps a little Mills and Boon that last bit, but yeah, I did think I would be married and have a family of my own... yet I am still single
Its funny where life's avenues and paths take us; for example I would have thought I would have traveled more; I wouldn't have thought me having a degree, a Masters and thinking about returning to education again.... let alone have a love for learning....
I would never have thought I would be a godmother to two beautiful little girls, nor that I would have friends as close as family
I would never have envisioned losing my dad at 24, or meeting my half brother at 23
I wouldn't have thought I would have done the jobs I've done, or have the interests I have developed....
so whilst I am not where I thought I would be at this age.... I am very happy with where I am and maybe its exactly where I am supposed to be!!
