That's Totally Fetch


In The City

Hi Munchkins,

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. My birthday is slowly creeping up on me and turning 26 is scaring me a little. Yes, I know. I’m still young but for some reason I can’t help but feel that I should have accomplished more by now. They say “age is just a number” but it’s not. Its a word. The word associated with responsibility, wrinkles, grey hair… becoming senile! I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one that’s ever felt this way. I’m no longer going to be a young adult. My title will be adult. Adult Dee. EW! I don’t know if I’m ready to proper adult. I’m officially going to be closer to 30 than I will be to 20. I will no longer be looking for the adult in the situation because “TAG” I am it. I don’t know if I am at all prepared for the responsibility that comes with adulting. I wish they had levels of adulting like they do for gym workouts. Beginner Adult, Intermediate Adult and Advanced Adult. Actually, yes! That’s brilliant. I like the thought of that. I will be an intermediate adult. I love how blogging brings light to such critical situations.

I guess I might be a smidge dramatic about the aging but it really is scary. Questions such as “when is the wedding?” , “where are the kids?” and “are you thinking of buying a house?” get thrown around like they going out of fashion. Getting married is something I’d love, I mean thanks to Pinterest I got that down to the thank you gifts but all in good time. {tick tock though boo… most woman don’t age like a fine wine, I would like to look semi decent in my photos}. Babies? I’m not really ready for that. I feel like I am still a kid myself. Yes, 20 years ago it was normal to have a kid or two at this age but I’m still a little to selfish about that. I don’t see anything wrong with it. Buying a house. Hmmm… that’s advanced adulting and I’m not there yet. I feel like I need to explore more and get the most out of life before stuff like babies and buying a house.

This year I have done a bit of travelling and I’m really enjoying exploring my country. A place I am enjoying going to on occasion is the Maboneng Precinct. It’s an urban area in the heart of our concrete jungle – Johannesburg. I could never describe the place as well as on the website:

“With its beginnings in art, Maboneng has evolved into a collaborative hub of culture, business and lifestyle that entices curiosity, encourages exploration and promotes a sense of urban togetherness. Maboneng is a destination on the eastern side of the city’s business district offering retail stores, entertainment venues and restaurants mixed with residential, office and industrial spaces that appeal to a wide variety of people and businesses.

A creative take on history, architecture, art and nature, as well as a place for people to proudly call home, Maboneng is the epicenter of the Joburg inner-city renaissance.

Submerse yourself in a place alive with vibrant culture, entrepreneurial spirit and a strong sense of community. Live, create and collaborate in a secure neighbourhood with a vision and future unrivalled among the urban set.”

If you are ever in the area, I urge you to check it out. Yes, there is quite a bit of work that needs to be done but you have to start somewhere and I think they have done a fantastic job so far. There is so much to do, from visiting the cute markets, to appreciating beautiful art, to sitting down for a cuppa goodness.

I took a trip to Maboneng with GDG Photography for a bit of a photo shoot session. As always they never disappoint!

If you have made it this far in my post, then I thank you for listening to my rant. Any advice on my aging fears is welcome 😉
