Hello quarter-life crisis!

It’s funny how I used to imagine my life years and years ahead. I would dream of Vogue, high heels, lots of shopping, girls night out, the perfect man, a great apartment. I would dream of New York City, afternoons in Central Park, coffee dates in the Village, cab rides (or maybe even a town car with my own driver) up 5th Ave, stopping at Saks (still in high heels of course), all while looking fabulous and flawless. Gossip Girl dreaming? Maybe. Nonetheless I’m here, in New York City, enjoying afternoons in Central Park, coffee dates in the Village, all while actually having found some great girlfriends, and the perfect man for me. Vogue? Eh… Not quite there. But I have landed a position as intern in the office of the devil that wears Prada. And I’ve worn high heels a couple of times, but mostly my everyday life is just foot-printed in sneakers (not to underestimate as they are both comfy and Kenzo!). So where am I in the life I imagined? Again, not quite there. And I tell you, sometimes it really sucks that I’m comparing myself to other people my age having great careers, thousands of followers on Instagram (Yes, I did just link my Instagram, so you can go follow me. Gotta work for it, right?!), succesful blogs etc., ‘cause it only makes me feel like I don’t do good enough. But then again, I’m 23 y/o (which means I can’t even have a quarter-life crisis yet), not even out of university, and although life as an intern really sucks sometimes, New York never disappoints. I love it here. This city fills my up with inspiration.
So on a bad day like today, feeling kind of lost in my own being, I put a hat on it. I am a ferm believer of dressing up when feeling down. It works ladies (and gents?). And I do know, what I want from life. To be happy, love, and be loved return. (yes, I’m getting emotional in my old days!), so maybe I’m not totally lost.
