Being A Big Kid

When we were still in college, I used to refer to everything in the adult world, such as employment, as a big kid job. Now that I've been out of school for three years, it is about time I got myself started on this big kid-ness.

Big Kid Life Step #1: Move out of the nest.

I'm going to look at an apartment down the shore on Tuesday, potential move in date is October 1.

Big Kid Life Step #2: Debit Control

I called and consolidated my credit cards to one card, 0% interest with no foreign transaction fees. I owe less than 2G's, but I don't want to owe anyone anything. Car loans and student loans are reasonable... $150 in eye cream? Not so much. I also got together last year's tax return to have it adjusted by an aviation specialized for the per diem.

Big Kid Life Step #3: He's Just Not That Into You

He didn't call. And its not because I did something wrong; there are no should have/could have/would haves. He's not into me and that's okay. Because someone else somewhere out there is and just as I don't want to settle, I don't want to be settled for.

(Begrudgingly) Big Kid Life Step #4: Clean Your Room... And Car

I live in the car, the room is back up support for my transient lifestyle. Unfortunately for me, I have to keep them tidy. I can do it. I can.

It is time to pick up and move on with my life as a single, 25 year old woman in this day and age. I've been waiting so long for something or someone to happen to me that I forgot how to take charge and be responsible for me. I'm what's happening, I'm making it happen, and then, I know in my heart there is a good, wholesome man out there waiting to stumble upon me.

Amen to that! It's a good feeling knowing that no one is in charge of my life but me. My big one is getting the credit cards under control... argh!
