I woke up this morning and thought to myself, “nope, I cannot adult today.” My bed was just too comfy, legs too tired, and head too sleepy. The list of things waiting for me to do reminded me that I CAN and will get out of bed, so here I am! Writing this with a massive cup of coffee in hand, I’m looking out the window and realizing that I am so overwhelmed with life right now, I feel like I can’t enjoy it.
The contract for my job ends in a few months so I have to start applying for jobs again. Anyone who has recently filled out a job application knows how painstakingly slow this process is. I’m limiting my search to Texas and Florida. Both of these places stay warm all year long and are fairly inexpensive to live in. I’m hoping to pay off my student loans within the next 5 years assuming I find a job that pays more than the entry level salary of $35k. Crossing my fingers!
Life as young 20-something isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. All of the sudden I have bills to pay, a new car to save for, taxes to pay, moving expenses, loans to pay off, and so many other things that I hadn’t really considered before. I guess that’s the price you pay when you finally decide to grow up.
As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, there seems to be this illusion that I and other bloggers are rolling in money and live in picture-perfect homes. For me at least, that’s far from the truth. My kitchen is messy, most of the walls in my apartment are bare, and my shoes come from the clearance rack. That’s the real, glamorous life of an up and coming fashion blogger.
