Since my last written post, I’ve found a full job, graduated, traveled to Asia, begun working… Literally, SO MUCH has happened over the course of three months and I’m still trying to process it all.

The post-grad life is… different. I moved back home to West Covina and am now once again under the same roof as my parents. After four years of not having a permanent place to call home, it’s definitely weird to be back in my childhood home as an adult. You almost feel displaced when returning to a city that has, for the most part, remained the same while you yourself have changed entirely. But life goes on and you have to adapt. So you do.

Then, there’s work. I quite honestly can’t imagine myself working from 8 to 5 for the rest of my life (or at least until retirement). The monotonous routine of it all bothers me. It’s the same shit every single goddamn day. So yeah, I’m definitely going back to school or doing a program or SOMETHING. On the bright side, I’m learning new things and the work itself is something I like. It’s just the routine of it all… that will take some getting used to.

I also miss the convenience of having a friend live 10 minutes away, down the street, or in the same apartment complex. Now that mostly everyone is settled into their post-grad adult lives back home, making plans to see each other is more difficult. You quite literally have to go that extra mile to see someone.

Ah, the beginnings of this post-grad life…
