God, how I wish I were 25 again. The joy of youth. But, seriously, your parents, I'm sure, are acting out of love, to ensure that you are happy and comfortable and not living on the street. That's what parents do. And turning older, getting wiser and learning what makes you happy, that's only with experience. I'm feeling pretty darned young recently, and that has nothing to do with my actual age. Follow your bliss*. You've got lots of things to be blissful about, no? If not, BEGIN THE JOURNEY!

*Apologies to Joseph Cambell for stealing his tagline.

2008-02-23T05:41:00.000+01:00

don't grow up. you seem to be doing exactly what I want to do - but probably won't. you don't need to make alot of money to be happy. just do what you want - but be able to live on it.

2008-02-21T23:54:00.000+01:00

You are still a baby.

Your parents are pushing the Asian expectation of going to the top onto you and you are now used to the Western culture. You have to be the best you feel you can and be happy with that.

And what Germans only bake at certain times of the year? I don't think so.

2008-02-21T17:55:00.000+01:00

Wait till you reach 40;-) Just keep on doing that wonderful spinning!

2008-02-21T14:18:00.000+01:00

I didn't have a problem with getting older until I hit 30, that was hard to take, now I'm 43, wow, written out it looks really scary to me too. My daughter is 23 turning 24 this year. You shouldn't be thinking about age at all. Must be the Foen you are experiencing right now! :o)
Hope your mood will turn around soon. Miss seeing your beautiful knits and handspun yarns, alsways so inspiring! Yeah, I'm only thinking about me here.... :o)

2008-02-20T23:35:00.000+01:00

Katty's right ... you're only as old as you feel. Why rush growing up?

Happy Birthday :)

2008-02-20T20:43:00.000+01:00

I will wait and say Happy Birthday on the actual day. I will probably not forget...

So for now I will just say sure, you may feel blah now, but tomorrow you get to go work in a yarn store. You lucky duck.



Happy Birthday!

2008-02-20T15:31:00.000+01:00

Happy Birthday!



Happy Birthday!! :)

2008-02-20T06:02:00.000+01:00

Happy Birthday!! :)

2008-02-20T05:07:00.000+01:00

woo! happy early bday! i'm going to be 27 this year. that's officially late 20s! yikes!

i'm sorry you're feeling so pressured. i understand how frustrating that can be. i think you should do whatever makes you happy. money, of course, will not buy you happiness, but it can bring you security. that helps a lot! good luck finding what makes YOU happy :)



Well, I will be hitting 30 later that year... and ...

2008-02-20T00:38:00.000+01:00

Well, I will be hitting 30 later that year... and I think that's absolutely okay. I'm feeling good, much better than ten years ago...
I don't know, if it's a typical German saying, but I think this is really true: You are always as old as you feel like! ;)

And I really hope, we all won't be grow up too fast ;)


You wrote something abot "Vanilla Essence"... that's kind of difficult to get in Germany, I think... I often use "Vanilla Sugar" (is that the right word for "Vanille-Zucker").

2008-02-19T19:03:00.000+01:00

Even if you get more responsible, don't forget to have fun. Have a great birthday!

"When I was your age"... When I was 25 I had just started knitting. I take that back, when I was 26...

I think it was a bigger shock to turn 25 than 30. Sounds silly, doesn't it? I'm turning 32 in just a few days-- and I'm totally o.k. with it. In my mid-twenties I thought I was getting too old too fast.

Age is pretty nominal when your outward persona and presentation truly affect people's impression of your age. I know people in their 40's that act and look as if they're 80, and vice-versa.

You've such a youthful face-- you could pass for 16. What are ya worried about??? :)

P.S. In the U.S. the legal drinking age is 21. Over the weekend I was carded-- carded! before buying a glass of wine.

2008-02-19T15:30:00.000+01:00

Growing up is highly over-rated. I don't recommend it. And as far as life successfulness; if I'm not sleeping in a cardboard box using bubble wrap in a blanket, I think I'm pretty damn successful. ;) Also, in case I forget (don't let me forget!) HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

2008-02-19T15:08:00.000+01:00

I think you have achieved a lot - you are a wonderful spinner and knitter and photograph and you have many enviously wonderful experiences in you past. And who says that getting older means getting dull? (=too responsible).

Anyway, all I really wanted to say is: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

2008-02-19T13:10:00.000+01:00

Well, it is nice to be financially independent, but I say don't grow up too much. Life should be an ongoing learning experience.
