Thoughts from two people from two different generations.
No matter what situation you’re in.
We all have the freedom to make choices.
But I don’t have a choice; there’s only two hours left before the ceremony starts. Just as I prepare to walk out of the dressing room, my friend pops her head in.
“Are you wearing a bra? Your boobs look tiny!”
When I came to Vietnam, I chose a more expensive ($1200/month) Airbnb to live in.
I figured if I spent a little more on accommodation with a spacious bedroom, a comfortable couch, a fully-equipped kitchen and a nice working table, it would help me focus more while working at home. That, to me, was a worthwhile investment.
As we grow older, many of us worry about hitting the specific milestones that’s expected at our age: graduating from school, finding a stable job, getting married, having kids. It’s what our society dictates, and if we try our hardest at feigning ignorance towards these milestones, those around us and those close to us will continue to pressurize us until we do care.
