As I go back and read what I’ve (recently) written, I notice that some of those entries were from almost a year ago! But really, when thinking about them, it only feels like weeks ago that those things occurred. Erin going to school, upper division psych classes, my cousin’s recovery, more trials and tribulations with friends and guys. Almost nothing different.
I did, however, start my first real ‘grown up job’ almost three months ago. I work in accounting at my dad’s friend’s construction company. It’s a pretty far cry from anything psychiatric, but it’s money, and pretty decent money at that. I also bought a new (used) car with said grown up money. As exciting as this is and as genuinely grateful as I am, why does everything still seem so stagnant? Is it that many of my friends are moving and advancing themselves in ways I haven’t yet? Is it the lack of time I have to even breathe let alone think? Whatever the case, it continues to be one foot in front of the other.
And I think this, here, sums up your 20’s.
