Hello again! I haven’t posted in a solid week (and a half??) – post-grad life has been extremely slow and confusing. I got this idea from itsgeorgiaxoxo, I love her blog you should definitely check it out! Sadly I can’t have coffee with all of you, although I wish I could!! This is gonna be like my online version of sitting down with you for if we were having coffee… except it is incredibly one-sided and allll about me… 🙂
If we were having coffee, it would totally be at Starbucks because I love a venti iced coffee with skim milk & hazelnut… hopefully you like Starbucks too? Ok, seriously though if we were having coffee I would probably let you pick the place.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about how stressful and confusing post-grad life is and how I have absolutely no idea what is going on in my life at the moment. I thought post-grad life was supposed to be that next wonderful important step in your life but now I am very confused if that is the case.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about all of the amazing things that my friends are doing – I love to brag about them because they’re so incredibly smart and kind. My best friend got a job right out of college (like excuseeeee me???) Very proud of her, always. My other friend is going to be living in Washington DC for 2 months while she interns for NASA. Yup NASA. My group of friends has been talking about how we are hopefully going to go and visit her this summer. I hope so because I love DC. The political nerd in me comes out when I think of DC. Another friend is working towards getting her teaching certification so she substitutes for teachers and always has the most hilarious stories.
If we were having coffee, I would ask you for advice on staying motivated and positive while I transition to that alleged next big step in my life. It can be frustrating applying for jobs and just waiting…
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I think that I will be getting a kitten and not a puppy. I am lonely in my apartment and have been wanting to get a pet. I would love to get a puppy but for some reason, I am very hesitant about doing so… I get scared that it won’t like me? I feel like getting a kitten may be the best option because cats kinda just do their own thing… even though cats don’t like me I hope that it will tolerate me.
If we were having coffee, I would show you all of the fun pictures that a friend of mine took for me. He’s a pretty dope photographer. I suggest checking him out on his Instagram. I think that I definitely pushed him out of his comfort zone for this one but I also think that we got some pretty cool shots! He does a lot of portraits but I especially love his landscape pictures.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how I really need to take a vacation to clear my mind. Lately, my anxiety and depression have not been doing so hot and I can’t seem to figure out why I want to stay in bed all day and isolate myself. Lately, I feel suffocated by everyone and it is no one’s fault either… isn’t that weird, how no one has caused this but I still feel it? Maybe I have seasonal depression?? Truthfully, I thought seasonal depression was only in the winter time because why would anyone be depressed when the weather is beautiful… life is confusing. I haven’t talked about it much in therapy because for some reason if I am having a good day or week when I have my appointment, I find it extremely difficult to talk about something so negative… I should probably talk about this at my next appointment.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how Nick (my boyfriend) and I went to visit his sister in New Hampshire. We love visiting her and her girlfriend, they are so relaxed and just get us. I think next time I will have to drive instead of Nick because I could not put up with his driving – I am totally a backseat driver. We went thrifting when we were in NH and I got a super dope chair!
Hmmmm… I am completely unsure how to end this post?? I guess if we were having coffee then this would be a super short get together because I don’t have a whole lot to update you on just yet, but maybe this is the calm before the storm??? A good storm, like listening to a thunderstorm at night in bed and watching the lightning light up your room.
Thank you so much for keeping up with me! Be sure to connect with me on Instagram! I love connecting with you guys! 🙂 Xoxo
