Hey everyone, sorry for not posting in a few weeks, I’ve been really busy. Track just started for me so my life has been consumed by weekday meets and all day weekend meets. This is basically my life for the next couple of months. But don’t worry I’ll try to blog more regularly. I haven’t been knitting lately, just because I don’t have that much time on my hands.
Something happened to me this week that I wanted to share. Friday, in my zero period AVID class, Advancement Via Individual Determination – college prep class, our new counselor came in a discussed our schedules for next year. I realized then and there that my junior year is quickly coming to an end and before I know it, my senior year will be here. I have been waiting for senior year since Freshman year, but now that it’s nearing that time I don’t think I’m ready for it. I mean in less than 10 months I’ll be 18, and an adult. I mean I’m not ready to be one. I haven’t learned anything on how to be an adult! Here’s what I never learned in High School:
- How to do taxes
- What taxes are
- How to vote
- How to write a resume/ cover letter
- Anything to do with banking
- How to apply for loans for college
- How to buy a car or house
But thank my lucky stars, I can you all about the pythagorean theorem. I mean why, why do I have to grow up? I’ve been wanting too since I was little kid, but now that I know what my future holds, what’s the point of growing up? No offense, but the older generations forget at times that the decisions they make affects my generations so much more. I mean the social security surplus is going to run out in a few years, the water situation is getting worse, there are less jobs available in the U.S., and don’t even get me started on the political aspects, is the future going to be any better for me? This is just something that has been boiling in mind, since yesterday, so I thought you could all see what goes on in mind. Leave a comment telling me what you think of adulthood. Is it all it has cracked to be? Is it a trap? I want to know what your experiences have been like as an adult. That’s all for this week, keep on knitting.
I am prepared for the worst, but I hope for the best.
