all my life i was told that being an adult was difficult and stressful.

but no one told me that i would feel alone, bombarded and indecisive. no one told me i would be tired every single minute of every single day. no one said i would be questioning every move i make – in the present, as well as in the future.

i received no warning of how difficult it would be.

pay this bill. find a car before the one you have dies. keep a smile on your face. pay that bill. find a new home because the one you’re in is slowly killing you with mold. bite your tongue. pay this bill. deal with headstrong loved ones who always think they’re always right. create a budget. pay that bill. remember to breathe. decide where you want to live. pay this bill. start a new job. find a way to pay for the car and the home you need. keep your composure. pay that bill. look your best. remember names, birthdays, numbers, addresses, etc. please everyone around you. deal with past mistakes. pay another bill.

‘adulthood’ has slammed the gas pedal to the floor and ran me over.

  1. Well spoken. And WHAT is with feeling tired all the time? I’m so over it.

  2. Oh how I miss you :) You’re absolutely right, there is nothing easy about being an adult and no amount of preparation on the part of our parents could have helped. I think so much everyday about every little decision I make and how it could affect me in the future; its absurd. Luckily there are no children involved yet, that would certainly complicate things more. But still, we turned out alright, semi-normal functioning members of society. I feel just a tad worse considering I’m still trying to overcome the obstacle of school and still deal with the day to day stresses. It’s a little discouraging when you see the people you grew ul up with enjoying careers with families, when your still two steps behind. But hang in there, I truly believe that the rewards from honesty and hard work can be good. Besides, your absolutely fabulous and there is nothing that can take that away from you ;)

    Btw-keep writing, I’m a big fan!

  3. Ditto!!!! Especially “pay that bill”, and tired all the time. It’s just so much all at once. I thought college was supposed to ease us into this! Hang in there <3

  4. i am glad to know i am not the only one feeling overwhelmed. thanks ladies <3
