Today I had the theme song from "Friends" running through my head... You know where it says.. "So no one told you life was gonna be this way. Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A. It's like you're always stuck in second gear When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year" Some days I think that part of the song was written about my life...why doesn't anyone tell you that life in your 20s is hard??? (please don't berate me with comments about how all of life IS hard) I won't admit that people tried to tell me life after college wasn't a piece of cake, but I wouldn't hear any of it. You go through college so excited to get out into the real world. I thought life had to get easier than paying $20,000 a year to write pointless papers, do busy-work assignments and work my butt off for unpaid internships. hahaha. No one told me I would still be broke after college because even if I was making money I would spend years paying off college debts. No one told me my dream job might also be the dream of seventy-five other people and that there would always be at least one person applying who is related to someone in the company and has a fast-track pass to the job. No one told me that I might not like the career I chose with my major in college or that I might spend years trying to find "my place" in this big world.....oops I didn't mean to rant, can you tell I have been having a bad couple of weeks? I forgot I was supposed to ask my weekend question! My question for you is--What do you do to cheer yourself up when you are having a bad day, week, month...?
