all my life i was told that being an adult was difficult and stressful.
but no one told me that i would feel alone, bombarded and indecisive. no one told me i would be tired every single minute of every single day. no one said i would be questioning every move i make - in the present, as well as in the future.
i received no warning of how difficult it would be.
pay this bill. find a car before the one you have dies. keep a smile on your face. pay that bill. find a new home because the one you're in is slowly killing you with mold. bite your tongue. pay this bill. deal with headstrong loved ones who always think they're always right. create a budget. pay that bill. remember to breathe. decide where you want to live. pay this bill. start a new job. find a way to pay for the car and the home you need. keep your composure. pay that bill. look your best. remember names, birthdays, numbers, addresses, etc. please everyone around you. deal with past mistakes. pay another bill.
'adulthood' has slammed the gas pedal to the floor and ran me over.
