Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 3:53 AM
This journal is not only an excuse to leech off a free day of neat journal skins, but to talk about how I plan on spending my life. It's going to be just a couple paragraphs about yours truly, just because I've been thinking a lot about my future lately.
To start off, I'm not in college. When people assume that I'm in college just because I'm not in high school anymore.. well, it just makes me really upset. Why? Because you're putting an expectation on me that is really none of your business, or right, to assume. And yes, I understand that college looks really good on paper.. But there are so many reasons why I can't or don't want to go to college. And you shouldn't belittle me for it. Good for you if you're going to college, but don't treat me like I'm stupid just because I'm not. My ambitions are focused elsewhere. I have one life and I plan on spending it the way I want to.
I want to spend my life with my boyfriend, Nick. Loving him feels so right, and he's made me happier than I ever thought was possible for me. I never thought I'd be capable of loving someone as much as I love him. And I understand I sound sappy and lovey-dovey, but I never thought I would ever experience a love so passionate, and caring and real.. Just thinking about him makes me smile and Lord knows I don't shut up when I'm talking about him to my friends. Nick is everything I want and the fact that he feels the same way about me just feels so surreal. We've been madly, and deeply in love for over a year and a half and I still don't know what it is he loves so much about me, because every time I ask, he just says "everything."
Coming full circle now. I know without a doubt that I want to marry Nick, I want to grow old with him and die knowing I had the greatest love in the world. We want a family and a house and I don't see a problem with being a stay-at-home mother. I want to cook and clean and take care of our children, and I want Nick to come home to a wife excited to see him, not one who's tired from working and has no time to exchange compassion because she has housework to do. And spending 4 more years in school, drowning in debt and student loans that I could no where near afford in the first place, just to become a housewife? It doesn't seem worth it to me. But if I do decide to pursue a career, it'll be when I'm ready, and when I want to, and when I can afford to go to college for it.
TL; DR (Too long; didn't read)
-Don't act like an elitist prick because some people don't go to college. Everyone has a different life and demeaning them for it is just rude.
-I'm in love with my boyfriend.
-I don't plan on going to college just to become a stay-at-home mom. If I want to pursue a career and go to college, it'll be on my time.
-Just to see if anyone is reading.
