A few months short of the Real World
As my last semester of undergrad kicks off, the feeling of almost being done with school comes with much happiness…as well as anxiety. If you think about it, for the past 3.5 years, I’ve lived a life where I’ve only gotten a taste of what the real world is like. Things like grocery shopping by myself, paying for my rent, or living on my own, have given me a glimpse of what’s to come, but in no way am I expecting adulthood to be this easy. I can only expect that there will be a lot more for me to handle like finding a job, supporting myself completely, and all and all dealing with the growing pains that come along with adulthood.
Thankfully for me, I still have the support from my family to keep me afloat, but the scariest part for me is not knowing how to function as a real-adult when the time comes.
I can predict that these next four months will be ones filled with much growth and change, and I’m hopeful that my perspectives on the real world will be considered something I can tackle. Watch me grow.
