Yesterday I received an email from my alma mater asking me to fill out a survey regarding my existence post-graduation. My shock didn’t come from realizing I haven’t really found a job I loved, but the part that read -“since your graduation six months ago…”- what?! Time is so inconspicuous, I wonder if my body has kept up with the fact that I am now (or at least, I should be) almost 23 years old.
I had been mentally preparing myself to go two months without a proper gym while studying abroad in London. I was 200% sure I was going to gain at least 5-10 solid pounds while eating, drinking my face off, and not working out as rigorously as I had been while in the States. I was okay with that.
