My quarter life crisis has come early, and society doesn’t like it.
I read this the other day and it resonated with me.
It talks about the taboo of having children in your early twenties — after your teenage years so you’re not seen as “irresponsible” in the eyes of your parents, but also before you hit 30, the average age a mother is when she has a child today.
I felt confused, and even more so because I didn’t know why I was feeling confused.

I regularly read Glamour magazine, and despite the stigma associated with women’s magazines such as these, I do quite enjoy it.
Last week was Mental Health Awareness Week at Warwick University, and it featured a number of engaging and inspiring talks from a range of speakers on issues from anorexia and suicide to personality disorders and depression. Whilst the awareness was brilliant, I think we need to be focusing on mental health for more than just a week – we need to be getting our 5-a-day everyday.
