I’m literally the worst. I don’t know how I was able to write two posts a week at school but can hardly even get on here to read others’ posts. So I apologize to anyone who was an avid reader of my blog. Because I’m the worst.
I can’t believe it’s already July 4th. It’s been six weeks since I graduated college, and last Friday marked my first month at my big girl adulting job. And we’re like halfway through summer already. I thought school went by fast.
But I won’t be away from school for too long. Last week I got accepted into the online Master’s program at WNE for Public Relations, so your girl’s going to put herself through misery come September when she’s working two jobs and going to school online. Check back at the end of the year to see if I’ve survived.
In a follow-up to a post from a month ago, I think I’m officially over dating apps. I talked to a guy for a week from Tinder, but two days after I gave him my number, we stopped talking. Being out of commission for that almost year and a half with my ex hasn’t helped me so far on my own when it comes to talking to guys again. And don’t get me started on Bumble. Every guy is a financial analyst. Cool. I just feel like, yeah, it’s nice to get the matches as a confidence boost, but everyone knows nothing serious comes out of those apps. I don’t want to waste my time on creepy guys when I could spend that time watching Netflix or yelling wrong answers at Jeopardy.
I’ve also noticed that I’ve had about four people ask me if I’m still living at home since I graduated. Where else would I go? I have no one to move out with, and I wouldn’t be able to hang out with my dogs on a daily basis. But that being said, it’s funny how this time last year, I had different ideas about this summer. I was thinking about moving down to southern Connecticut to live with my ex after I graduated, because I thought we’d have a future together. Nope. Found that out pretty quick last August. But if we were still together and I wanted to move down there, then I couldn’t have taken the job I have now. And who knows if I even would have found a job down there. Yeah, the Whole Foods in Fairfield is really nice, but I would actually need an adult job. It’s funny how things can change so quickly.
I think, overall, I should be happy with how everything is right now, and I am. I have two great jobs, I’m going to get my Master’s degree, and my mom does my laundry for me. As for dating, I’m so used to being on my own (it helps when I didn’t have a relationship until age 19) so this really isn’t anything new. I might be at a disadvantage for a little while at least because at my ice cream job, it’s me and 13 other girls, and at my full time job, I’m the youngest in the office. And with my poor track record with the dating apps, I might just not bother for now. I’m a believer in the universe and that sometimes things happen for a reason, so I’m just going to let the universe do its thing.
