Dancing like I'm 27?

Okay so no yarny post this week.  I had a stomach bug this week and am to tired to knit most nights so no real progress but I did want to here I am.

I don't know about you but my radio is set between 3 main genres in the car:  1. NPR 2. NHL on XM Radio and 3. Kiss 96.1 FM

Basically you get the news, Hockey talk and top 40 music.  So when the new Taylor Swift song 22 has played, I jam because I remember what it was like to be 22.

I went out most weekend nights and was at Eat n' Park for the breakfast buffet.  The world was just starting to open up.  I was just finishing school and starting my career and had a huge world ahead of me.  Clearly I had fun and I don't regret anything that I did.

So goofy
Where did that top go I love it?
So flash forward, I sit here at 27 and realize that yeah while I distinctly remember what being 22 was like.  I am no long that young girl and relate more to this video.

Yes that's right,  I feel more like I am 32 than 22.  But damn-it, I am still smack dab in the middle of it.  While I like Downton Abbey and going to bed early, I can still go out and have fun.  I have always been a firm believer that you are only as old as you think you are and there are days when I feel ancient.

There's a Snake in my Boot!
And there are days where I feel childish. :)  I may not go out and dance but I am always willing to dance away my problems at home with friends in my PJs  (PS this is my favorite song ever!)

So tell me how do you feel?  Are you feeling 22?  Or something closer to 32?

  1. Part of me feels like I was born 32, I love my night-in PJ time and I'm always stressing about something. But like you, sometimes I'm just completely silly and refuse to feel ridiculous for it. And I can't believe I'm already, I'm old! ; )

    1. You know I feel that way too. I always felt like I had an old soul. Perhaps its being an only child with older parents. Anyway you are not old ;)
