It gets so much better.
One of the only good things about my high school experience was the lack of the moms on Facebook at that time. It was still too advanced for their skills, and poor seniors could bemoan their dull lives and say how much they are ready to be out on their own. Now if some kid writes "T minus 67 days until I'm out of here!", some sort-of-friend's mom responds with "Don't you grow up too fast. You're going to get out into the real world and have responsibility and it won't be nearly as fun.
Something their parents never gave them was a sense of adventure. Or responsibility. Or the desire to experience new things. And that is just sad.
I know that I like being busy, learning how to budget, and dreaming about all the things my life is going to be, and none of them include wishing I could turn back time.
I feel like this is a good time to let you all know about something new in my life:
1) I'm changing my major to Retail Management
2) I get to study abroad for 2 weeks at the end of May in Paris, London, Madrid, and Barcelona.
These are the days.
