Yo tengo veinticinco años. This phrase has never been so depressing. This morning in Spanish class (yes that's right, Spanish class) we had to introduce ourselves to one another with our name and our age with the challenge of 'let's find out whose the oldest in the class' -- almost making the prospect seem like an exciting idea.
I get it. 25 is not old but amongst a bunch of dieciochos and diecinueves it feels bloody ancient.
(And in case you were wondering - yes, I absolutely was the eldest in the class.)
My husband and I are both studying at Snow College in this tiny little farm town called Ephraim and because of the way the English school system works and my birthday being in August -- I haven't been to school since I was fifteen years old and that was ten years ago!!! I feel super out of my league but can I be honest.. I am a little bit loving it. With all the adult things I've had to this last year and a half - get married, leave my parents, attempting financial independence, run a household - it's actually quite refreshing to feel like a bit of a kid.
I tried further education in the past and it never really worked out for me. I enrolled in the Southampton uni music bachelors then quit. I auditioned for the royal, the royal northern and trinity all to no avail.. but there's something different about it this time. Something electric. I truly feel like I am in the right place and I'm doing what I'm meant to do. I'm a music major but the states require that you take some generals as well - so I've taken this opportunity to learn Spanish - this way I will be able to better communicate with my in-laws and well, learning a language and a new culture can really broaden you as a person.
Other than Spanish and human development classes all of my other classes are music based and as a vocal major I'm getting to sing every day and I love it and can already feel tiny improvements in my voice. I've even been accepted into opera workshop. This excites me the most.
Being 25 at college, you can feel like your miles apart from the rest socially, but work wise - I don't think it could be better. You feel more together and serious about everything and I actually care about my grades.I am so excited to be studying what I love and feel more motivated than I ever have done before. I think this could really be it this time:)
a sneaky peak at my schedule for this semester.. 👌👌
