I expected that after almost twenty years of life I would have a more practical view on life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not walking around believing in fairytales and the completely unrealistic. I have just noticed that it can be hard being practical about the things that I love like shopping, food, and photoshoots. What I’m basically saying is that I am having the typical broke-college-student woes. While I am sure that I could be in a way worse position financially, I find it very hard to find a happy place between my wants and needs. This is especially true when I am attempting to buy clothes. I’m always eyeing things I know that I don’t need or won’t serve a genuine purpose in my closet, but a girl can dream right?!? In my head one voice is saying “yass Tay you can step on necks in those five-inch booties” but my more practical voice speaks back like “now you know you are not strolling around campus in those -_-” and then I dreadfully remove them from cart. This a constant cycle about every few weeks or so.
Could this be the first sign of, dare I say it… adulting?!? Is this what everybody warns you about? Ugh, well these are welcomed growing pains. Everyone must go through that phase where you are looking at things in a more practical manner. I am realizing that I do not need every cute item that catches my gaze and how to decipher between must-haves and short-lived infatuations. Let me know if and when y’all began your first phases of adulthood in the comments!
Until next time
