I don’t know about you but I am most definately not feeling 22. I have friends and people who I went to middle school/high school with who already are married, have kids, engaged, college degrees and/or full time jobs.
I, on the other hand, am still in college. Graduating in September, so about 8 months. And I’ve never been on an official date. Meaning both parties know and think that it’s a date. Not the guy thinks its a date and you don’t think its a date.
But I still feel like I’m 19. Maybe 20. On certain days.
I still have no idea what I want to do after I graduate. Here’s the thing, I like film and producing but I don’t like it enough to want to do it for the rest of my life. But I only have 8 months left until I get a degree. So I’m sticking with it. The degree I’m getting is a communications degree, there is plenty of options there.
I need to start looking for internships or jobs now and applying in about 6 months. And I’m not even sure where to start.
I’ve lived away from home, across the country, for over a year. I’ve gotten used to being able to go to the doctor by myself (minus cardiologist), cook for myself, budget, go to the grocery store, schedule my time, live with other people, ect. I’ve come a lot farther than I was over a year ago.
But there is still a lot of new things that I will have to learn and do. Like renting a house/apartment, buying a car (possibly if I don’t live in a city with great public transportation), working full time, living by myself, going to the cardiologist by myself, going on a date, having a boyfriend, and the many more things that happen as time goes by.
I’ve grasped a little bit of control of my life. Now I have to make that big step into adulthood. And figure out the rest of my life. Daunting.
