I'm The Millennial Girl Who Can't Wait To Have Kids Because I’m Not Sure I Want A Job

Motherhood, in itself, should be listed in the Yellow Pages.

I can't wait to have kids because to me, THAT is my career path.

I don't have an idea as to what I want to do when it comes to the classic working world because nothing appeals to me more than raising a family and being a good wife.

My idea of hard work consists of raising children and being the best wife and mother that I can possibly be. Sure, that doesn't compare to working in a factory, making concoctions in a lab, or crunching numbers all day, but in some ways, I think raising a family is more challenging.

For a long time, I thought I knew what I wanted to do as a career path. I toyed around with at least two different ideas at all times - sometimes more. It wasn't until I had a taste of each career that I realized I have no clue what I want to do with my life - except have children and raise a family. Honestly, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

This decision of mine does not mean that I am not capable of holding a "standard" job. I'm sure that if I wanted to, I could become an accountant. If I worked hard enough, I could be a nurse. I could do anything I put my mind to, but what I want that to be is a mother and a wife.

The challenge of raising children in the "right" way is enough of a challenge for me. When becoming a mother, you sign an invisible contract that instructs you to raise a child in the best, most moral, and most loving way that is humanly possible. That, in itself, should be listed in the Yellow Pages.

I can't wait to be a mother because I'm not sure I want a job. The idea of working a 9-5 is not my cup of tea. There's a saying that goes "Do what you love and love what you do." To me, that means chasing babies around while my floor is scattered in Candy Land pieces while PB&Js wait in the kitchen.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
