today i had the realization that I will be working nonstop until i am probably 65+. I have worked consistently since i was 16. i liked making my own money back then, but now that it’s a necessity it becomes a whole different animal. working to survive really rips away at your youth and makes you the person you never wanted to become. i envy those who don’t have to work throughout college. who can still live off of their parents. i hate them so much sometimes, but i also want them to enjoy their youth as long as they can. just because mine was robbed from me prematurely doesn’t mean i need to wish that upon my peers. it’s sad and depressing but i’m learning how to make it okay, and how to still find those times of joy and happiness. they are much farther between and fewer, but also sweeter and more valuable. unfortunately, when life gives you lemons the best option is to make that goddamn lemonade, and life has given me buckets and buckets of lemons for the past two years. i’m just hoping one day all this shit pays off.
