but it’s paper
I’ve been out of a job for some time now and I’m currently waiting to hear back from two different job opportunities. I should be thrilled, but honestly I’m scared. Other classmates of mine have already finished paying off their college debt, and I haven’t even made my first payment. That’s normal, right ? Is a 20-something living with their parents is allowed to have a free pass at least for a little bit ? I get worried about money a lot. I want it, but I don’t want it because it will ruin my life (I may or may not like to spend my money on things I don’t need), but I need it because I’m in debt and I don’t want to have a bad credit score. And I need a good credit score so I can move out. I need to be an adult, but first I need money.
1 step forward, 5 steps back
- goes to college, loses touch with “friends”
- majors in business, folds clothes for summer jobs
- graduates college, can’t qualify for a “real” job
I’m a firm believer in karma, but I can’t recall what I’ve done recently to feel so much like a failure.
