I truly believe everything happens for a reason and things turn out the way they are supposed to no matter what struggles or obstacles you have to go through to get there. I think i’m finally starting to get my life in check and i’m going towards something I should be even if I don’t completely know what that might be in the moment. I’m going to school full time and I finally just got a job! (I start monday — it’s at my school in the creative production lab; sounds fancy, right?), I’m really excited for the next 3 years being at this university, because despite last semester and my lack of trying, I actually really liked the school, which has never happened to me. I’ve decided to devote my time to actually trying this time around. I’m hoping that I enjoy this new job of mine and get to keep it around until I graduate. The longest i’ve ever kept a job was 6 months and even then that was a struggle but hopefully since it’s in an environment I enjoy, i’ll be happy. I still have no idea what my major is but hopefully i’ll figure it out with in the next few months or so but at this point in time i’m pretty happy and content with my life. Obviously i’ll be wanting to have a social life but school will come first and foremost, work, then play.
I want to start saving money to visit my best friends next summer because I haven’t seen one of them since 2012 and the other since 2009, and that is FAR too long to be away from your best friends. And despite being away from each other so long, when we see each other again we’re going to pick up right where we left off, just older (and better looking).
I’m just happy that i’m finally feeling like I get to be more responsible and not have to ask my parents for money all the time since I have been for the past year or so. I’m going to start a savings account that I will not touch until I graduate college and that’ll be my moving/travel around europe after I graduate fund. It’s time to start growing up and feeling 20 years old and not spend my money on little things I don’t need, even though most of the things I use. I have quite a list I need to save for. Trip to Atlanta, Seattle, maybe a Contiki trip? and then obviously my fund i’m not going to touch until i’m done with school. I also want to save for a few other little things such as my mini weekend trip to MOA when I see the 1975, get my hair done and go back blonde (which is pricey), I also might want to buy a new camera.
It’s going to be a challenge to balance school and work because i’ve never really had to do that before, i’ve been lucky enough to have my parents be amazing and help me out in that department but it’s time to be the twenty year old I am and learn some responsibilities, it’s time to be a big girl and make some money not to just spend where I want but to save it.
