It has only been a few month since I’ve graduated high school and already I’m feeling stressed about everything that I need to do to get ready for college. High school does not prepare you for this at all.
Most of my problems have to deal with money. I have no idea how I’m supposed to make all of this work. I found out recently that there’s no way for me to get a raise at my current job (which I’ve worked at for 2 years). I make more than minimum, so I don’t know where to find a job that’s going to pay me more than minimum, but also more than I’m currently making.
I don’t know how I’m going to pay for rent, car insurance, school, and every other cost of living. I’m really stressed out about it. Today I spent over $200 on textbooks. That’s an entire paycheck! Why do I need to pay so much for books that I’m only going to read bits and pieces of?
I know I’ll figure something out. I have to. It actually felt really good to write about it all.
