Hello and welcome to Girlhood - a blog written by me (the awkward looking girl on the right) about the trials and tribulations of being an adult in the modern world. Listening to Britney Spears’ ‘I’m not a girl, not yet a woman’ on repeat, I can’t help relate more to this song now than I did in my teens.
As I approach my 30s without a long-term boyfriend, mortgage or hefty pay packet, I often feel like I’m failing at adulthood. But something that I’ve realised as a millennial is that we’re not failures if we don’t have these things, we’re actually pretty badass. We’re increasingly delaying some of the traditional rites of passage into adulthood, choosing to live our life as we please - even if that does involve an hour pizza and Netflix binge.
I think we should be celebrating this new movement, which is why I set up Girlhood.
