The clock is tickin',
and yer know it.
Note to readers : Aight the post below is based solely on my personal opinions, and if ya aint diggin it, see that red X up there? Click it :)
Okay fine I think I am old now. As in I am no longer in my teenage years (yes in fact I've left that generation years ago). Life around me ain't the same no more!
When I meet up with my hommies, our conversation changes from "hye do you know A is seeing B yatta-yatta-yatta" to "hye A is getting engaged/married to B like this coming July!". And Mr A and Ms B are your good friends!
Reality Check : Yes the people whom are getting engaged/married soon are your friends! No longer your father's sister's cousin's mechanic's daughter's neighbour's son's wedding!
Note : omgggg isn't it happening so fast? it could be YOU anytime! or Me. Not! *runs away from the boyf cause I wana stay single for the rest of my life to receive more ang paus. Okay I keed!
When you start seeing your friends giving ang paus during cny.
Reality Check : yes your friends! your own good friends! yeah I have about 2-3 friends who did that this CNY. Just because they have already started working. And not because they are married.
Note : young children, in your dreams, but I'll be only giving my first ever ang pau after I get married!
When you no longer receive ang paus.
Reality Check : What a sucker. the adults welcome you into their clique, and think that ya can now stand on your own feet. properly.
Note : I still want my ang paus lar. Gimme! XD Let me enjoy every moment of receiving ang paus before I start giving them!
When you sit around the table, full of adults, and you suddenly go like "omg I'm 21 and I'm old already". Try that, I challenge you. You'll receive loads of THE STARE, THE STARE that will make you whimper like a dog, pee in your pants, scurry to the kitchen hoping to find some teabags and boil some tea and serve them to cool down those volcanoes.
Reality Check : Never, ever say that you are old in front of adults. LOL. Kids may do them no offence, but once you start working, what-so-ever, just keep your lips sealed on that matter.
Note : seriously, some adults may take it, but i've personally encountered a few who couldn't. LOL. sorry la but i dont have any earl grey, oolong tea, chamomile to serve ya.
When people start to talk to you about work, not studies.
Reality Check : Welcome to the adult-o-sphere!
Note : I'm still young, don't ask me about it. I don't even feel like working the next time. Okay parents I am kidding.
okay whatever! age is a sensitive issue now, haha. but not for me! I am still younger than my age. God is fair, like what my aunt says. I may be short, but I will definitely look younger than you! Boo hoo! :D
