Friendships As a Young Adult

I am not a stereotype. I do not know anything about late nights and hangovers. I am completely unfamiliar with allowances and moving out. In my reality, I am thinking about ways to mold today’s me into a me of tomorrow where current me will do a double-take when she meets the me of the future.

After graduating from secondary school, no one tells you how much trials and loose gravel that’s on the road ahead. We are filled with infantile hope of a future.  The surprise that is Young adulthood takes a significant toll on the friendships that we have developed from primary school and onwards. Where you were so keen to speak about every detail of your life, you are now struck with a sense of shame and fear of judgment that you may or may not be where everyone had epected.The job you had thought would soon come has now taken more than six months for even an interview call. Your friends have found work and new boyfriends. Everything is rapidly changing. Suddenly,  You’re faced with you, who you are and who you want to be.

Personal life is so raw when you are no longer in the safety net of school. You are faced with adulting whether you asked for it or not. Bills, loans, break ups, weight-gain, pregnancies, Spiritual warfare, insecurities and gosh, too much more.

The friendships begin to get more and more difficult to maintain.  Certainly, it would now require more effort. You are now able to think carefully on how meaningful one person is to you.If they are worth the effort. You begin to sift out those who speak life too you and weed out the useless negative ones and hopefully, you become stronger as you have let go of the weight of unhealthy relationships. Nothing lasts forever. That is simply, the truth.

Book Thoughts: Flame in the Mist

Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist, #1)Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, it was wonderful just as I knew it would be! I could smell the earth from the forest and feel the cool air every time I turned a page. I was pleasantly surprised at the twists this book took and I could not believe the giant question mark this book ended with. I enjoyed the character development although some things were left unknown which I hope to find in the second book. I fell in love with more people than one. However, I couldn’t help but feel like the main character was overly praised. She seemed to always rattle someone in more ways than one.

Yes, she was a very good and strong character but I felt that if she was in front of me I would first think that she was all talk. I was always waiting for her to back up all the bravado. In the end she did prove to be useful. I anticipate what choices she will make in the future.

The writing style Is beautiful as usual for this author. Poetic and well paced. I enjoyed being transported with the characters in their world and seeing what they saw.

*Fan girl moment*

From the moment I met Shazi and Khalid in the Wrath and the Dawn I had no hesitation coming into this book. OH HOW I MISS THEM. But trust me ladies the love interest in  Flame and the Mist is just as Mysterious and sizzling! Let your imagination go wild darlings! It was a wonderful journey that I would definitely recommend and hope that you all experience it too.
