13 going on 30

I was flicking TV channels out of boredom today and happened to see 13 going on 30 on tv. As a natural course of events, I just watched the movie. It wasn’t hugely interesting but it got me wonder what I was doing when I was 13 now that I will be turning 30 in a few years’ time.I only remember being a normal high school first year student and nothing exciting happened to me throughout. Having said that, many years have passed and still nothing exciting happened to me. I think that movies tend to glamourise many ordinary events in life. In real life, only those born with a silver spoon will be able to live the luxurious lifestyle portrayed in the movies. It keeps the rest of us, ordinary people, wonder and hope. But the truth is, it just won’t happen, harsh but true. So, it was all for the purpose of entertainment. When the curtain draws, we are back in reality, having to face realistic issues like money, work, relationships…etc.
