Everyone starts high school tomorrow and it feels bloody fantastic that while they are being intimidated by workloads and deadlines I will be having lunch with my friends and then going out for drinks. But apart from these wonderful social things - that we can now do from 8am to 3pm for the first time except for school holidays #adulthood - a lot more of our time is devoted to contemplating our futures and money and serious things like *how long will my parents be willing to pay for my petrol(gas)????* or *am I studying the right degree… at the right university… in the right city…* These kind of thoughts made me think of you tuber Danisnotonfire's video called "College Dropout". Suddenly school seems safe. You only have to worry about the next exam or speech. Nothing further. Now our entire lives are spanning in front of us in multiple directions and well… that is why we all drink so much.
I'll be the first to say that I am afraid of the mysteriously unknown future. But I have had two month of complete 'independence' and I have already encountered the strangest experiences that would seem so normal to people of an older generation but is totally bizarre to us. Things like my first job interview or booking your own appointments and keeping diaries and to-do lists.
On top of all my blogging ideas - like documenting my Eurotrip that I did in December/January - I feel like sharing my struggle of growing up and establishing my own place in the world seems like a witty idea. What do you think?
