Growing up is a trap… don’t let me scare you but it is
If you’re a “new” adult I’m sure you know what I mean
No one tells you how it’s gonna be
You sit in class and you’re like I can’t wait till I start working and I don’t have to think about these damn lectures and assignments
Here’s what I say – enjoy those “damn lectures and assignments” they are probably one of the easiest things you’re gonna have to deal with
Growing up …
It creeps up on you.
One morning you wake up and you have to find a job
Or else you can’t survive
Why do I suddenly need a job you ask; I lived the 20 odd years of my life without one and I got on just fine
Or you might say:
Ohh I want a job. I want to be a working class lady with my designer heels and bags strutting to work like the rock star I know I am.
I say cool cool.
Where do I start?
Is it the countless job applications you make
Or the shit paying job you finally get after body breaking assessment and interview stages
Or is it the Years you wait before you start to say , you know what I’ll do anything just give me a damn job
Or is it the salary that’s never enough
Is it swapping those dream designer heels for high street flats and any bag that will fit all the crap you have to take to work everyday
Don’t let me scare you but growing up is hard
We’ve heard this word a lot.
“You have to endure”
This statement becomes recurring when you become an adult
‘Cause trust me hun, endurance is everything and more in your adult life.
It comes up when you’re making those countless job applications
It comes up when you get that shit job that pays you peanuts
It comes up when you get that shit job that pays you loads
It comes up when you get that okay job that pays you okay
It comes up when your boss is an asshole and you have to just deal
It comes up when your colleague will do anything to get your ass fired
It comes up when the guy you love is acting like a you know what
It comes up when all your friends are getting engaged and you can’t remember the last time a guy said hello
It comes up when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you want to do is get ready for work
It comes up when your trying to explain something to your aged mother and she’s just not getting it
It comes up when you want to punch your boss in the face (please don’t do it, even though you really want to – it never ends well lol)
This is the watch word for adult life
We’re all holding on to it
It gets better
