You know growing up is hard to do these days. When a college degree gets you basically the same thing as high school degree used to get you, our generation is not coming out of school with the same next steps as our parents used to.
Our parents used to graduate college, get a job, and move out of the house. Now we graduate college, still probably need to find an internship to get our foot in the door, move back home, and try and plan our next steps. Yes you will always hear of the few who get the job offer out of college and are moving out without a thought, but that is not most of us.
I was a semi lucky one. I did not graduate college with a job, but after about a month and a half I lucked up on one while being in the right place at the right time. I.e. I was doing some work for free, and someone noticed and offered to at least pull my application.
Now after 6 months of working and 9 months at home I have finally decided to move out of my mom’s house. The thoughts are scary though.
Am I doing the right thing? Will I have enough money to live on my own? Am I ready to be by myself? Will I get lonely? As I start to plan my apartment and being by myself, all of these thoughts go through my head, but it’s time to take the next step.
Do you ever have any fears of growing up? Until next time,
