Before I rant today, can we talk about how AMAZE this jumpsuit is. Firstly, its a HAREM jumpsuit. Second, it’s perfect for summertime because it’s colorful, but not too colorful, and super lightweight and airy.
LOVESTITCH is on point right now for all my favorite summer things.
Soooo… to accompany this amazing jumpsuit, I wanted to talk about adulthood.
I was really thinking the other day, what it means to be an adult, and is there a right or wrong way to be one? I mean I’m 24 years old and feel like I should be more accomplished than I am or more successful. I blame this on conditioning.
YES, like psychology conditioning (my favorite subject btw)
Most of us grow up thinking we have to graduate high school, go to college, then put our big girl pants on and get a real job.
Side note, the most annoying question when I was a waitress was, “So after you graduate what’s you’re real job going to be?” My bitchy response: “Um, this isn’t a real job? I’m here, this restaurant is here, I’m making real money.” Yeah, #zerofucks always.
Anyways, back on the topic of adulthood. Adults are thought of having their shit together, right? With a big degree and a savings account, and a dog, and a new car they can’t afford parked outside their too big of a house. All these thoughts are in my head because it’s what I was taught and what I’ve seen growing up. Well I’m figuring out that all that is a sham.
I’ve graduated high school…and college, I pay bills and have responsibilities. Shit I’ve even had a kid and got married, and still feel like my life is a mess. Not knowing what to do next, or what’s the right move to make. It feels pretty pitiful sometimes especially since I have a 4 year old. But lately I’ve decided that when it comes to adulthood, there’s no right or wrong way. Whatever way you feel is right is what you should go for.
I saw a quote on Pinterest that said “It turns out being an adult is mostly just Googling how to do stuff”
THIS COULDN’T BE MORE TRUE! I mean, who really has their shit together now-a-days and knows every secret to life?! No one.
Throw the stereotype of being an adult out the window, because truth is, this is 2016, no one lives by that anymore. Especially us millennials. We are risk takers, curious, stray away from the norms, don’t give a shit and don’t take shit from no one kinds of peeps.
So what if you’ve graduated college but you’re still getting drunk every night. So what if you still rent an apartment and drive an old car. SO WHAT if you aren’t living life how everyone else thinks you should be because it’s “the right way”. Fuck that traditional bull shit. I hate traditional and what everyone thinks is normal.
My life is normal! I wake up everyday with a full heart, drink the shit out of some coffee, get to see my husband and daughter all day long, get to be my own boss and work as hard as I want, do some laundry, go grocery shopping, clean up the mess my little tornado makes, then sip (or gulp) on some wine at the end of the day. Sounds pretty damn good to me.
This is MY version of adulthood, what’s yours?
