Yay! Today is a day all about #treatyoself. I got my hair done, I'm gonna go see a movie, I'm gonna go out to dinner with my family. It's pretty awesome.
Here's the thing: I'm also having a bit of a quarter life crisis. And I'm not even 25 yet.
So prepare for this, because here it is. Pretty much the entire contents of this post. It's the dumbest thing you will read today.
I'm 24 today. And when I was 23, I was still in my early twenties. The fact that I worked as hard as I do was really impressive! That someone in their early twenties is this dedicated and this responsible! I've traveled across the world (or at least across Europe) and I was in my early twenties!
Now I'm in my mid twenties. And it's not nearly as impressive anymore.
Of course it's ridiculous, that the difference of a day, from 23 yesterday to 24 today should change how I perceive myself, or how I think others perceive me.
But I'm also really used to being the best at a lot of things, and being the best at a young age. Acting is one of the few things that gives me a serious challenge, and that's part of why I love it. I have earned every bit of the talent I now have at it. But it also means that when I succeed now, I won't be a prodigy anymore. I'll just be a regular success story.
As if there's such a thing as a "regular success story" in the entertainment industry. Yeah. I know. I'm being petulant, and freaking out over nothing. I totally get it, believe you me.
And hey, the rest of my day is fabulous. I look amazing right now, I'm gonna hang out with friends tomorrow, I rocked an audition earlier today, and I got the footage back from a short film I shot a couple of weeks ago. Life is pretty good.
But it's not like a quarter life crisis is subject to rational thinking. It's just... there.
At least I'm the best at doing this early, too.
