Growing up can be fun at times.
I know it's super important to live in the moment and to enjoy the time we are living in now, but I am excited for a few things when I grow up. Yes, I still consider myself to be growing up because although I am "legally" an adult, I still am dependent on my parents for a lot of things. I don't have a job with a sufficient income, I don't have a place to live on my own for myself, and the list goes on.
I am not looking forward to having to do those things, but, I do look forward to a lot of things when I am older. I look forward to the moments that I don't know when they will happen, but I want to happen so badly. I look forward to the things that are huge life moments that will be surrounded by stress, but the actual moment itself is a moment of pure bliss.
I am looking forward to the day I have kids from my first child to the however many more I have some day. I don't know how many I will have, but it will definitely be more than one. I don't know when I will have them, but I am excited to bring little tiny humans into this world and raise them.
I cannot wait to be a mom and just be a kid's world. I know that it will be filled with grossness and stress, but there are going to be moments that are priceless and perfect, and I cannot for those moments. Those simple moments that will mean nothing to my kids, but the world to me.
I am looking forward to the day I adopt a dog on my own as like an actual adult. Growing up, I've always had a dog and these dogs are my best friends. I love them so much, and all I want to do when I am home is cuddle them. These dogs are the definition of perfection, and when I am home they sleep on my bed with me and I love it. It's the best part about being home from college.
I know that raising a puppy and a dog is stressful, as my youngest dog is 4, and she was a lot to handle at first. Since I was 15 when we got her, my parents made me train and raise her, and it was a journey. I had no idea what I was doing, and it is stressful trying to potty-train a crazy, energetic and attention-needy puppy, let's just say that. I love her so much though.
I am looking forward to getting my first job in my desired career path. I know that means I will be doing work, but I know I am going to love my job so much and when I get that job and sign that contract, everything in college will be worth it. All of the time spent in class, doing homework, stress zits, will all be worth it.
Finally, I cannot wait to travel into a random place in this world and document it. I don't ever want to be a travel vlogger, but one day I want to bring like a vlogging camera and go to a random part of the world for two weeks and film every part of the journey. There's something cool about traveling and filming it on an actual camera instead of your phone because it makes it real in a way.
Look I know traveling is expensive and stressful, but everything in life is stressful. Nothing in life is perfect, if it's perfect it's probably not real. I am excited for the little bits of fun and priceless moments that you can only get from these experiences. You only get your first job once, you only become a mom once, you only get your first dog/pet once, you only travel by yourself for the first time once, and I cannot wait to experience these emotions.
