Being an adult isn’t what I thought it would be.
I thought being an adult would be fun, I’d have endless money & be able to do whatever I want.
I quickly learned that being an adult meant taking care of yourself, being responsible for yourself and your actions, having to work really hard for basically nothing & not being able to do whatever you want due to their not being enough hours in a day or from not having money (story of my life)
I started working at the young age of 16 and I have been employed ever since.
I quickly realized that money didn’t in fact fall out of the sky and if you wanted a lot of money you had to put in the hours and work for it. As I got a little older, I started paying bills (rough I know)
Now at the age of 20, I am in school paying for it myself, I work part time with full time hours majority of the time, I pay bills for myself and my mom, I buy food for everyone in my house and also TRY and save.
All I have to say is, this sucks. When I was 16 I would work and get paid and I would have nothing to do with all of that money, so I would just go shopping and spend it all. When i was sad I would go to the mall and spend $200 to make myself feel better, NOW?
I could not do that type of shit because that $200 is about a month worth of groceries for my house..
It’s just crazy how we all want to grow up so fast, but once we are grown up we think to ourselves, “What the hell is this? Can I be a child again please?”..
