Picturing the Future
Adult Life, Senior Life and the Now
Being 25, I feel like I am at an age where I have to start and take ‘adult life’ seriously. I should be building towards a solid career, a mortgage, a car, a steady relationship, maybe even think about starting a family and getting a dog. One step at a time though.
I recently ventured into digital content creation and am slowly realising that I should just enjoy the now. This sounds easier than it is. Trust me. I don’t have to actively construct my ‘adult life’, instead it will unfold itself. At least, that is what I’d like to believe for my piece of mind’s sake.
Also, because before you know it, you’re past adult life and enter the next phase: senior life. Many things in the future are uncertain, but there is one certainty: we age. Voilá. Plain and simple.
Roughly two weeks ago I went out to picture the future, and this is what it looked like:
Stichting SeniorenStudent is a charitable organisation that connects seniors with students and cares about social care. Members of the charity were invited to visit Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ for a lunch concert and a guided tour around the concert hall. I wrote a short article about our visit that can be found here (fyi it’s written in Dutch).
