As a child, I couldn’t wait to grow up and be a grownup. There would be no one to tell me where to go, what to do, what to wear, or how to live my life. Going off to college allowed me to live the life I have always dreamed…except it didn’t.

When I left home, I was optimistic and had grand dreams of what college and adult life is going to be like. No one told me that I would be stressed every single day because I never had enough money to buy food, pay rent, buy clothes, or have outings with friends. Not only is money an issue but relationships get harder to create and maintain.

Being thrust out into the cold a.k.a. being dropped off at college, is not the fun party tv portrays it. Luckily, my parents taught me to self sufficient enough so that I wouldn’t struggle but yet here I am along with my fellow peers. I’ve been told that it gets easier but I’ve also been told that it gets harder. College and growing up is annoying.

For my homies that are still struggling with washing clothes then here is a link for you:
