EN For the first time in my life I wasn’t happy to celebrate the fact that I’m getting one year older. Before the day, I started feeling melancholic and a bit bad about the fact that I am no way near to where I thought I would be by now. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t have to be better or worse, it’s just that I thought it would be different. And the biggest disappointment, I guess, was the fact that I always thought that by the time I’ll be 25 everything will be more clear, I would have stability in my life and I would definitely have a clear plan about what’s next. I started feeling a bit lost and thinking why on earth do I still have so many questions that need to be answered and why on earth have I not accomplished everything that I wrote on that list, everything that I dreamed of before I was 14. And then the day came and I turned 25. And just like that all the thoughts, all the drama varnished. Just like that I felt better again. I realised that guess what, ain’t no big deal. And after talking with some of my friends, they’ve told me that they’ve been through this as well. I guess it’s just a phase, I guess it’s just that time when we really want to make a difference, when our passion and motivation bursts. But at the same time we have no patience, we want it all and we want it now. At least, that’s what I feel. So now that I’m 25, I’m back to the old me – no more regrets and more energy – to make myself more proud by the time I turn 26.
RO Pentru prima data in viata mea nu am asteptat cu bucurie sa-mi sarbatoresc ziua de nastere. Inainte de data cu pricina am inceput sa ma simt ciudat. Ma simteam melancolica si usor dezamagita. De mica aveam in gand cum va fi la 25 de ani (nu stiu de ce tocmai varsta asta) si acum, aproape de prag, simteam ca sunt departe de asteptarile mele. Nu neaparat intr-un sens rau, ci mai mult legat de ceea ce simt. Credeam ca odata ce voi trece de 25 de ani o sa am mai multa stabilitate, o sa-mi fie mai clar ce si cum, o sa fiu mai sigura de ceea ce urmeaza, si da, ca o sa realizez ce mi-am pus in gand de cand eram inca in scoala generala. Si toata supararea asta s-a evaporat instant duminica, de ziua mea. Insant am revenit la normal. Si ce e interesant e ca treacand prin starea asta ciudata am vorbit cu mai multe prietene care au trecut de pragul asta (marele prag). Si toate mi-au confirmat acelasi lucru. Asa ca am ajuns la concluzia ca nu-i asa mare tragedia. E o stare prin care trecem la varsta asta, e o perioada in care avem prea multa pasiune, prea multa motivatie, prea multa dorinta sa facem ceva maret, insa n-avem rabdare deloc. Da’ deloc! Cel putin asta se-ntampla prin cercul meu de prieteni si la resedinta Andra & Dan. Asa ca marea revelatie care mi-a adus-o varsta de 25 de ani e ca mai este timp. So let’s enjoy it!
