Diary in English ♡ 7/24
Today I dined with my friend from university days. We studied literature together. I'm 29 years old and she's 28. We Japanese call women like us "アラサー." It means "around 30" and it implies that "You should be married and already have kids."
I decided to quit my job and study English and work in the UK, and I'm really excited about it, but sometimes I feel uneasy about my future. Should I get married someday? Should I have kids? Should I continue working in JP and look now for a husband?
My friend also feels uneasy about her future. Many friends and co-workers around us get married, have kids and get their own houses. I know the timing of such events happen are depend on the individual. We cannot judge whether for our lives it is correct or not. But we feel like we are left behind and we are abnormal.
We talked about this theme but came to no conclusion. We were glad to share our thinking about it and decided to live rest of our lives without any regrets. I want to learn English, live in the UK, get a job I really want to do, travel to many countries, make a lot of friends and find a life partner who can enjoy traveling and drinking with me!
