Life Update: Adulting is Complicated and A Little Thanksgiving Pep Talk

Adulthood is like looking both ways before crossing the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

Keeping up on my blog was much easier when I was only working full time over the summer, not working 30 hours a week while take 16 credit hours…

I have not wrote on here for awhile, but here is a little life update:

I am graduating in April with my bachelor’s degree and also recently got accepted into Western Kentucky University’s Organizational Leadership graduate program!

I am so excited to be getting all of this exciting news. It is a little overwhelming; however. I have had a lot of growing up to do since this semester started, as I just got my own place and have to be an actual adult!

Working is hard. College is hard. Applying for graduate programs is hard.

And though adulting is complicated, I would not have it any other way. I am so grateful for the education I have gotten at USI and the fact that I chose a school where I can get my bachelor’s degree in only two years. I am so grateful that I get to continue my education at another wonderful academic institution. I was also offered a job for the college of business at USI for my last semester there, and I am so excited for that.

Thanksgiving is coming up!

I guess what I am trying to say is that although life (ESPECIALLY ADULTING) gets a little messy, hard, complicated, tricky, and all other words you could think of, try to think of the things you can be grateful for, especially with Thanksgiving coming up.

While I am constantly busy trying to get all of the things done I need to get done and planning my next move for my academic and professional life, I often try to reflect on what I have that allows me all of these opportunities.

Without the help from my driven parents, I would not be anywhere close to where I am now. I learned my drive, compassion, and creativity from both of them and I am so grateful for them also.

So keep working hard, being grateful, and don’t forget your coffee!

  1. Yes, adulting is hard and it NEVER gets any easier. You will someday long for the less complicated days of today. But never lose your desire of forging ahead and living your life to the fullest because some day you will look at today as the fun part of your youth. Good luck to you!
