Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Remembering not to rush through life

This semester marks my first year as a senior in college. When the semester started I had already started envisioning what my life would be like by the end of the year. I wanted to for sure be living on my own and having a different job. The thing is, now I am realizing that I should not put that pressure on myself just yet. This is because although moving out would prove my abilities as an independent adult to myself and others it is not the pressure that I think I should be looking for just yet. I had been feeling lately that I was putting way too much pressure on myself to move out. I realized that there is no way that I would be able to afford the cost of living along with my bills and my car payment. Luckily, there is no pressure put on me by my family to move out. On the contrary, my mom encourages me to finish my schooling and paying off my car before I move out. I think that it is easy to get caught up in wanting to be on my own but I realized that I am lucky that I can still live with my family. I realized that when the time is right, I will move out and not have to struggle because I want to have my life together by having a steady and professional job and at least my bachelor's degree.
