Am I freaking out?

DISCLAIMER – Oh! Oh! Oh! There is nothing going to be inspirational or informative or intellectual about this post.
*Freaking-out-alert*, this would be. Something out of my writing zone.

How many of you know that January has already been knocked down? No, that is perhaps a stupid question to ask. Question should be – “To how many of you the particular moment of knowing has hit that your year is already out of its first fragment January?” There are only twelve months in total, you know. And one of them has already been knocked down.


That means we are left only with eleven, out of which February has chosen to come up with twenty-eight days. See, February has itself given me a genuine reason to mark it under the category of being disliked. Why could this year be not a leap year? I know this year is not one of those ‘one-day longer years’ as 2017 is not completely divisible by four. I learnt this when I was a kid, the way to know if an year should be categorized as a leap year or not. All of us learnt this method, I guess. Didn’t we?

Yeah, so, while planning for innumerable things, I kind of forgot that the number of days I have is wholly a countable figure; nothing close to being countless. This probably is my first experience in being staggered by the passage of one month. A good thing or a bad one; I am yet to figure out.
Okay, a better way to see an year is through the glasses of days. That way I still have three hundred plus days, but that is just a picture to look at for calming oneself down. The truth is – I am left with just eleven months.

And probably this is the reason I do feel reluctant to go closer to my birthday month, too. It’s July by the way. So, I have got a reason to call July my favorite month, even though, this is an absurd point to mention right here. Birthdays could be considered good only if I could get cake of my choice and surprise gifts, but my next birthday will make me another year older. And that is an issue, a big one. Why couldn’t I just blow off my cake’s candles, if there would be any, and just enjoy my gifts, again, if I get any? Why is it a compulsion that I have to call myself a grown-up of twenty-three? I am fine with being twenty-two. Oh my God! Adulthood has started killing me. What would happen when I cross twenty-five? I know I would have already started feeling like a geriatric by then, which is nothing I am afraid of. I just don’t want to age this soon.
Oh! Got an idea, which is just an idea, by the way. If only I was born on twenty-ninth February, I would celebrate my birthday once in four years.  That means I would age four times slower. That is it. This is what I needed. A birth date of 29th February.  Just a thought, nothing serious.


As I cannot stop it from passing by, I would preferably do what I can. I will bid adieu to January with a smile, nobody said that it has to be a genuine one, and sparkle in my eyes. Using ‘sparkle in my eyes’ appealed to my fingers and eyes; it seemed little fancy to use.

I would love to bring a little change to the statement ‘I am a twentieth century girl’, if possible which is not. A change from above statement to ‘I am a twenty-first century girl’ would work fine. Just one word change. Nothing more. Can anybody do this miracle?


See, I am not freaking out, just sharing with you how it can feel like to be freaked out.

And this is how you must be feeling right now. Aren’t you? I hope not. *puppy face*

    1. 😂Birrhdays used to lure me till last year. But now, it is all different. I am different.
      We, humans, cannot just escape from our basic nature of appreciating a phase once it’s gone. We are humans, after all.😉
      This disclaimer is actually because of your comment, Prashantt, on my last post. I didn’t want my readers to expect me be highbrowed when they start reading this post, and end up with taking a queerish sigh – ‘What did I just read?’😛

      1. Haha..good to see this side of you,that comment was just in a light notion please do not mind it as you write beautiful on some of the best needed topics unlike me and keep writing on it like this.
        And now i’ll not highbrow whenever reading your posts as there could be possibilities of quirk in it too..haha
        Have a great weekend ahead ahead Aditi!😊🙏

        1. Oh!
          It’s an honor to be able to celebrate birthday, but not getting older.😛 On a serious note, I agree with you. Not everyone is lucky enough to be gifted with that long life. I was in a phase when I published this post. Now, so am over it and thus, won’t mind getting older (probably).😃

          1. Well always remember this and I’m just saying…. If you ever want to contact me out side of wordpress and talk you always welcome to miss. I’m all ears my friend but only if you want to. I’m not the type of person who says one thing and does another I’m loyal and real. But it’s up to you my friend. Maybe one day we can trade story’s. Who knows?

  2. Hahahaha! Omg! Only yesterday I was sort of freaking out because of the exact same reason, January over already? How is time flying so fast? Like seriously what on earth O_o
    I remember time crawling during my school days and now it feels like I blinked and an entire year got over! Also I agree with the birthday part. So damn true.
    Lol you’ve written it so amazingly that I could honestly feel my panic through your words😂😂😂😂 And gifs were just cherry on top!

    1. It feels good to know that I am not alone.😅
      Though this birthday thing has started this year only. Otherwise my next birthday’s excitement used to commemce with the passage of my current birthday.😛😂
      Even I loved those GIFs. I was just hoping that my cherries don’t take the limelight of my cake, and I feel they didn’t.😁

  3. fear not, things won’t go downhill until you’re 30, then its just a matter carrying on, or maybe I am just being dramatic. My birthday is the 17th December so I am a year older, then two weeks later I bid goodbye to another year, which pretty much doubles my age as I seem to be losing years willy-nilly.

    1. I still have few years down the lane then. I am more concerned for my twenties than my thirties. Twenties have got a lot to do, and thirties are quite far-sighted now, so don’t have much plans for them, as of now.🙈
      Oh J! You know should be in our hands to decide our birthday date once we grow up.😁 Another illogical idea to compliment my whole, almost, illogical rant above.😛

    1. So, we are july babies, Moushmi. High-five.🙋😃
      Actua right. But if my every year, every month, passes by as per my plans, I would love to get older with every birthday. But even I don’t, that won’t help in bringing my younger years back to me. So, I better make my plans work.😛

    1. Thank you Radhika.😃
      I hope you didn’t judge me for my steamy outlet to let go of its steam.😛
      Age definitely is just a number, but you know when time passes by in a faster rate than you had expected, even this number scares you. Though now I am in a better state. Have moved over this ‘freaking-out’ phase.😉

  4. Haha, it was pretty awesome read. Mine is October and I am 19,I don’t have any disappointment with these numbers yet,but I know someday I too feel the same the way you do right now. Still it’s okay, do parties, shoppings and what not. You know what I love to do these crazy stuffs✌👍♥

    1. So, you still living your teens, Sudershana. Cool.😃
      You should not feel this way, ever. In fact, having time still in your hands, you can actually bypass this phase.😍
      Shopping is my favorite too.😉


  5. what a creative way to use the scenes and depict your inner feelings…if you do what you like, time runs away, and if you don’t then time runs slow, so in both ways you win, in first with life and in second with time…nice post

  6. LOL! Loving that disclaimer! May have to ‘borrow’ it sometime! 😉

    My daughter turned twenty-five last month. Know what I told her? Happy QUARTER OF CENTURY! LMAO! Yes, I know…mean mommy! LOL!

    It’s gets better…really.

    (And I was a March 1st baby. Missed being born on February 29th by four hours and seventeen minutes. My mother swears I did it on purpose! Claims I was stubborn in the womb! LOL!)
