Second post of the day to make up for lack of posting yesterday. (I was actually away from my desk for most of the workday yesterday. Can you imagine?!)
F*ck I’m in My Twenties Guided Journal prompted me to write down things I thought I would have figured out by now.
There are plenty of things that fall under this category, but here are just a few:
- My life. Specifically I planned to be in law school at this point. And here I am working as a legal assistant. The job (and many other factors) that convinced me to abandon the idea of law school, at least for now. But wait! I had back up plans! For example, I was going to get a job as a writer. Little did I know that I cannot make a living off many writers’ salaries. Not even close in fact. And the well-paying writing jobs, like technical writing, I have zero experience with. In fact, CSU didn’t even offer a class in technical writing.
- Health Insurance: I’m sorry my deductible is how high? And until I meet that, you won’t cover anything?! Ugh.
- Retirement plans: In my defense, I’m not even eligible for my company’s retirement plan until I’ve been here a year. And I know I don’t have to go through the company and all that, but this way lets me procrastinate. I know, I’ll probably regret it in the future but shh!
That about sums it up. The first point is one that encapsulates most of the things that I thought I would have figured out by now but I absolutely do not.
