Before we get started here I want to let you know that I hate being an adult with every fiber of my being. There, I said it. Call me negative, call me jaded, just don’t call me because I’m probably busy doing something adulty like budgeting or eating kale and I don’t have time to chat. Really, I feel like I don’t have much time for anything these days, well, except for happy hour- but we all know as adults that happy hour attendance is mandatory.
Besides exposing me to the beauty that is champagne mixed with orange juice, adulthood has done me no favors. My metabolism has slowed, I’m more depressed than I’ve ever been, and I’m losing friends at record speed. I know these things are “natural” “growing pains” and they “happen to everyone” but really, is that supposed to cheer me up? Knowing we’re all becoming soulless zombies who live for the weekend, stunt on the ‘gram, and Tinder swipe til our thumbs go numb?
This is not what I signed up for.
But….it’s what I’ve got, and I’m determined to successfully navigate this minefield of relationships, money issues, and off-the-chart stress. And of course like every twenty-something year old I have to document my journey online. Because if no one sees it, did it really happen?? I’m hoping through this blog I’m able to blow some steam, challenge myself to be better in all aspects of my adult life, and learn lessons that I can pass on to whoever decides they can tolerate my writing.
The twenties are trash, but I’m certain there are ways to deal with the stink.
