How is that possible? That can't be right, can it?
Life is pretty different than I expected it to be when I was jumping up and down with my friends and throwing my cap in the air.
Four years ago I had this idea of what was waiting beyond the college bubble. I was going to get some job for a little while where I would put my major to work. Then I was going to be just like my mom and get married by the time I was 24 and be well on my way to having my own perfect little family. In the meantime I would have a really cool apartment, or maybe I'd already have a house, and probably a dog because everyone seems to gets a dog.
I have now been working at the same job for most of these four years. I have fallen in love with someone I didn't even know (at least not that well) in college. I have grown up (some) and the four years have taught me some hard lessons and also reminded me that I'm still really really ridiculously young. I'm not "late to the game", not behind any schedule.
Yes, life is different than I expected it to be 4 years ago.
And thank goodness because it is so much better!!
