Growing Up

aoinoue: (Poetry - Miles to Go)
I remember feeling like a complete failure after graduating college and not ending up at a grad school like the vast majority of my friends and figuring I'd take my chances in the "real world". I wasn't driven enough, I wasn't smart enough, and I hadn't worked hard enough to do grad school. I also couldn't afford it.

However, I have to admit that after reading the Facebook status of one of my friends from my college theater department who did end up at a theater grad school lamenting applying at the Apple Store again after getting his MFA, I feel less bad about my choice.

I may not have a job that fulfills me, but I do have a job that pays well and I have normal, stable hours (for the most part). There are worse things (like even more debt and no job prospects) than a boring desk job, so I'm grateful.
