Ain’t it fun
Living in the real world
Ain’t it good
Being all alone
Where you’re from
You might be the one who’s running things
Well you can ring anybody’s bell and get what you want
See it’s easy to ignore trouble
When you’re living in a bubble
Seriously, college graduations should be playing this song at commencement instead of Graduation (Friends Forever). The quarter’s being flying by really fast, and there’s only 4 months left of undergraduate studies. Forever. I can’t wait for school to be done, but at the same time, I don’t want commencement to come, because it may inevitably mean leaving some friends and memories in sunny San Diego and stepping into the adult world of responsibilities. Like getting a job, and finding an apartment, and budgeting your own money so you can survive, and moving,and cleaning up after your own shit. Or move back home as a safety and save money, but lose all freedom. So either way, it’s really a lose-lose situation.
I think the scariest part of post-grad life is the moving part. For me, I want to live in a big city, and I will gladly relocate to any (decent, relevant) job that takes me, but it scares me to leave behind familiarity only to be thrust into a foreign environment. Like how do you find an apartment to live on your own in a new city, or how do you make friends when people may not even be around your age? Because in school and college, we grow up and live around our peers, which makes it all that easier to meet acquaintances and friends. Can I just never grow up and be like Peter Pan, except slightly more mature?
