So I, being as young as I am, am relatively new to the world of “adulting” and I just gotta say, this is hard work! I’m currently a week away from starting school again. So this time next week I will have begun my struggle of juggling a full-time job, full-time schooling, volunteer work, exercise, social life, and sleep.
Last year I wasn’t working full-time so it was easier to manage school and work. But since my promotion to shift lead, I now work 30-40 hours a week. I’m loving the new position (amd the pay raise is pretty nice too 😂) and seeing as how I don’t have much of a social life, my summer has been not much more than simply working.
This time last year is when I moved to Fargo. When I moved out of my parents’ home. When I moved away from the town I grew up in to start my adult life on my own. And it is scary! I can’t believe it’s been a year, yet at the same time I can’t believe that’s it’s been ONLY a year. So much has happened to me this past year, both good and bad. I’ve met so many people who have had such a huge impact on my life. Looking back I feel like “how did I manage life before I met these weirdos?!?”
As I sit here on my lunch break at work I’m looking back on my life. I’m trying to imagine the fact that by this point in my life, my grandma was already married and starting a family. I’m trying to realize that only 5 years ago I was getting ready to start my first year of high school. I’m starting to realize that I’ve grown up so much, yet I still have so much growing to do (not physically because obviously I’m gonna be this short for the rest of my life). I’m so thankful to everyone who has helped me in life to grow into the woman I am. If you have to ask me if you’re one of them, you probably aren’t. You guys know who you are and you already know this, but I love you ❤️❤️❤️
Alright that’s about enough of that introspective emotional crap for today! Thanks for reading guys!
