Well, I just moved to Manhattan to start grad school, and it just hit me like a dead weight: I'm a grown up. No more innocence, no more fun. All I have now is bills and stress - and none of my friends from New Jersey or Ohio are here to help me through it. I'm sure I'll make friends here soon, and I've already met some sweet girls in my program that have sort of taken me under their wing, but right now it's just bad. I feel sort of ... swampy, if that makes any sense.
Ah, well, I'm a chronic complainer anyway, but thanks for listening.
Ahhh. Yes, being a grown up is a shock when it finally hits you that you are the one that is responsible for everything. I'm still adjusting!
I know that every major change in my life, moving from high school to college, from college to a job, from one job to another job was very difficult. You tend to lose touch with those friends that were so close in your past. But eventually you start to make new friends and it does get better.
I understand the swampy feeling! Kind of bogged down by everything, overwhelmed by the changes, sad because the friends aren't there, etc.
You can always talk here on PP. It's amazing how much the people on here can help, even though you have never met them.
Hang in there!
