The Diary of a Stressed, Working College Grad

Dear Diary,

Let’s get straight to the point. I’m not gonna lie, I’m missing college! The days where I could party all night and still wake up for class, set my own schedule and just love freely. Being an adult definitely SUCKS! I haven’t even been a full adult for long and I’m already tired of it. You never realize how much you could enjoy life until after you look back on college and reflect. I mean we would go on spring break, take trips to other schools…. you name it. That’s the excitement I need back. Now that everyone in my circle is on his or her way to building a career, I feel like we lost our spark along the way. Never before would we let work or school stop us from going out and turning up on a Thursday night. Is this really what I signed up for?

Don’t get me wrong now, I do not, not even a little bit, miss the academic stress of taking midterms and trying to ace finals because I slacked off all semester. But, that was the beauty of it. Someway, somehow, I knew I could make it through.

These days I’m lucky if I even go on a vacation one time out of the year. I feel like these are supposed to be my fun years, before I start my own family, where I travel and see the world. Do things I haven’t done before!

I don’t want my twenties to fly by and have nothing to show for it. Especially now that I have bills, I just feel like spending money on the stuff I really want to would not be smart. Idk I’m just at a crossroads here. Life is too short to not enjoy it while you can but its also too short to be broke. Ugh! In my heart I know there will be plenty of time for me to be an adult, but I only have one chance at this. WHAT. DO .I. DO?
