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.
Who doesn’t want to be or have everything perfect? Everyone. Why? So everything is “easier”, so you fit in, so you have money, so you are emotionally stable, etc. What I don’t get is why take away all the fun that life has to offer through its “horrors”? There is no real magic to solve your “problems”, but the closest thing to it is laughter, fun, and cynicism. Well, at least that’s what I think. I thought of what 20-somethings want to make perfect in their lives, especially for the girls, it’s weight.
