How Old Do You Feel Like?


This Saturday evening, right after my disco nap – also known as tucking your 5 year old into bed and falling asleep as well, then waking up wide awake around midnight – I browsed Facebook a little bit, hoping it will bore me enough to make me tired, when I stumbled upon this gem of a meme. I laughed out loud because it was so true and it’s something I often talk to my friends about.

I Even though I’m officially turning 30 next year, I still feel like I’m around 26 or 27 years old. For a while after I had Lara I felt like I was stuck on 25 but now after a year and a half with two kids I’ve definitely aged up to 27 :-)

That is, until I hang out with people in their early 20’s. Then I’m like, ooooh this used to be me right there and nope, that’s not me anymore. I mean that in a good way because I feel like your twenties are meant for finding yourself, figuring stuff out, making mistakes 20 year olds make and most of all for growing into your own person.

I wish I could talk to my 20 year old self sometimes. I would tell myself a lot of things but most of all I would probably tell 20 year old Masha to be a little easier on herself and not take some things so hard. Also, avoid Antonio’s pizza after the bars let out (although it is kind of the best thing ever and probably worth all the little mistakes that came after).

How old do you feel like?

These Dark Days…

I wasn’t sure whether to even write this post or not and wondered whether it would have been better to just kind of stay quiet this week because pretty much everything I could write about seems quite trivial in light … Continue reading »
