Singularity




What better way to celebrate being single than with crazy tribal pants? Valentine's Day didn't make me any more aware of my singleness because I've been relishing in it lately. At this time in my life when I have more friends who are either engaged or in serious relationships than single ones, I've made the conscious choice to stop online dating (those stories will be saved for another day) and to just be guitlessly selfish, because I can. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for those friends, but I just feel like your mid-twenties is such a messy, awkward, and fun time in your life that no one really writes songs or stories about. And I don't want to miss any moment of it. It's like being in high school again--being unsure of yourself, figuring out who you are, who you want to be, and what you want to do--except this time around, you can drink and you sorta have money to travel. All the while, you're starting a career that might not be the right choice, paying off loans for said maybe right choice, and trying to find someone to spend the rest of your life with. I just think that we're married for a lot longer than we are single, so love and marriage can and should wait for me to grow up a bit more.

Until next post,

  1. Hahahaha, such a good point about your mid-twenties! (It's so much easier to be self-conscious when you can calm it with a mimosa...)

  3. "I just think that we're married for a lot longer than we are single" So true! I just find it so crazy, and I don't mean to be cynical or anything, to see people in their mid to late teens thinking about forever with someone already. I mean, I admire and am so happy for those rare mid teen relationships that make it into the mid twenties... but we're so young. We don't have to be so, for lack of a better word, obsessed with finding our other half and/or thinking about forever. Haha sorry! Mini vent haha!! This post just got me, and I just thought of all the people who have asked if I have a boyfriend or if I'm seeing anyone in such a tone that suggests that I SHOULD be with someone at my age. At my age? I'm only 22! Silly people!

    But you go, Jasmine! I hope you find yourself, and more things to love in life <3
