My first year out of college vs. my second year

IMG_0645First year

  1. What exactly is steel wool made of and why have I never used it before? It cleans dishes so well. Have people been keeping this a secret from me my whole life?
  2. My landlord is, well, not the best. How do I behave around her? What an awkward relationship.
  3. Dang, getting up every day at 6am for work is exhausting. I need to go to bed at 8pm.
  4. Where are all the young people who automatically want to be my friend? Pretty sure my personality didn’t change that much since senior year.
  5. Geez, going to the gynecologist in Germany sure is a blast…
  6. Oh, right, you’re my colleague, not my friend. Gotta remember that.
  7. Taxes. Which boxes to mark, that is the question.
  8. Are you free to hang out this week? This month? This year? Well, it was nice knowing ya.

Second year

  1. I have paid my rent on time for three months in a row.
  2. I have cleaning products I actually prefer. I literally have preferences.
  3. I cooked a well balanced meal tonight. Pasta was not involved in the making.
  4. I think this person is my friend. It only took a year of coaxing but, heck, we do stuff together sometimes.
  5. I own a blazer and slacks.
  6. My resume says I have skills. People ask me to be their friend on LinkedIn.
  7. I have a boyfriend. He has a job. Miracles.
  8. I think I can do this.
