ON ADULTING: PLEASE MAKE IT STOP
Welcome to my first March blog post. I always considered march as my month because my birthday fall on the 23rd of this beautiful month. Even though this year it started with heavy snow I want to believe we are in for a serious turn out, especially because after the 21st is officially Spring time. Because of this reasons and more I thought it would be nice to make March a “Get to Know Me” month and create a new tradition with all you guys who follow this blog.
So like the title suggest I’m adulting big time, this year I’ll be turning 24 and that makes me a step closer to a quarter of a century. And lately I’ve been thinking about when I was six and anyone over the age of 20 looked so put together and with a defined plan for their future in mind. Fast forward to 2018, I’m in Higher education with absolutely no clue what is going to happen next. Of course I have friends, and yes I am still in a long distance relationship ( so I guess that’s not completely helpful) yet, I can seem to figure out what I want for myself on a professional level. Lucky enough, I have always been working for a chain restaurant so ideally I will never go without a job. But is it all i want for myself?
Living by myself I have come to understand the person I’d like to become yet I can’t seem to figure out a way to become the Super Woman I so desperately feel is in my future. Because yes, I’d like to become a wife and a mother but I would not want it to define me, because there is so much more to me that my sex and the stereotypes that come with it.
Honestly I think that if I had the means I’d keep studying until I drop, understand Media and Communications to its very core and never have to leave the academic world. But I would never want to teach, that’s one of the thousand reasons, I’m also a broke student as I might have mentioned in previous posts.
As much as I want to believe that adulting and take responsibility for my choices are things that have already been happening for the last 7 years, now I’m realising how much thing have been going so fast and I didn’t really have the chance to savour all the good things that have been happening to me.
Maybe I want this process to stop but I want to believe that only good things are yet to come.
What about you? How is adulting treating you? Tell the Fox Family in the comment section below.
