I’m going to be 24 in about a month. I have no real job, no boyfriend, my income is a joke, I still live with my parents, and I never went back to school to get my Bachelor’s degree(I have an Associate and then some).
I see girls who aren’t as qualified and who act way less professional than I getting jobs I applied for and know I would have exceeded at.
I see girls younger than me getting engaged and I’m sitting here never having been in love.
I have more experience than what a Bachelor’s degree would have given me, but it seems like not having that damn piece of paper has become a road block.
I feel like I’ll never succeed and be stuck like this forever. I’ve had small victories here and there, but my life is nowhere near where I want it to be or how I imagined it.
If you’re a fan of a band, BE a fan of the band. Not just an album or a song, but the band in general. Especially if that band doesn’t play shows very often and people would kill to be in your position. Hearing people walked out on Brand New tonight because they played Daisy infuriates me. Sure it might not be everyones taste, but you paid to be at a show that sold out in a minute, so live it up. Personally I would have much rather been at tonight’s show and seen TDAG/Daisy(as they are my favorites), but I’ll be at tomorrow’s with presumably YFW/Deja and still have a blast because I am a fan of the band. The beauty of a concert is that you don’t always know what your getting every time, but enjoy it because you’re fortunate enough to be there.
Next week I get to see(in order): The Wonder Years, Vinnie Caruana, Young Statues, O’Brother, Sainthood Reps, NGHBRS, The Early November, Allison Weiss, Oh Honey, BRAND NEW(twice), The Front Bottoms, Kevin Devine.
