Dear Internet,

I’m here to share my confusing journey as a twenty-something, whether you or anyone else cares. Recently, I’ve been feeling lost as to what I’m “supposed” to be doing with my life and what I want to move towards. This being, aside from, having a family, owning a house, getting married, etc. (all of which I am definitely too young for right now). So, I sat down and tried to create a list of goals which could be long-term, short-term, whatever. This list really didn’t include anything that I thought would be meaningful to me in 10 years. Here it is:

GOALS:

  • complete another certificate
  • get my driver’s license
  • pay off credit card debt/ school loan
  • get back into the habit of working out
  • eat less junk food
  • travel

So, while most of these things are important in the scheme of my life, they just feel like things to check off on a to do list.

Disclaimer about myself (if I’m using that word in the correct context): I do not have a job that I am very passionate about. I thought I wasn’t one of those people who really has a creative skill or outlet to guide me through life. I just found a job that I like enough so far to help me and my family (parents + siblings) to live a stable life. And so far, it’s been able to provide me with that. I have an awesome group of friends I’ve had since high school and a family that supports me.

The reason I’m writing this blog post is because I found a document from 3 years ago on my computer of a story that I attempted to write and never got back to. It was not the greatest piece of work by any means. But, it made me feel different (in a really good way). So, who knows if I’m going to keep posting on here. I just felt the need to write it out and just like every person in this day & age, what better way to express myself than telling the internet?

Sincerely yours,

TWNTY & CONFUSED
