Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Hey y'all! It's been a while since I've posted. These last few weeks have been stressful. As a graduating senior, I not only have finals and graduation itself on my mind but the future as well.

I feel as if for the last few years I've simply been floating by while my peers have been rushing around with internships, grad school ideas, and jobs. I feel like I'm so far behind compared to all of them! And I know, I should not compare myself to them but it is a little hard now that I have to really start thinking about the "future." It's sort of as if I completely missed out on the memo that tells people that this is what they should be doing at this point in time. On the outside they all seem like they have it together (I'm almost hoping that they're freaking out as much as I am because if they aren't then I must have really missed something). They are all talking excitedly about their "grown-up" things while I just sit in the corner wondering why I thought it was good idea to stay up and watch Bob's Burgers the night before. So I'm a bit behind on something. Story of my life.

But really, y'all. I don't even know what I like! I'm a Lit major, and while that's fine and dandy, I don't really want to teach kids. Writing has been fun, and I really like editing things (as long as it's not mine I sort of love doing it ha) but I'm not sure if it is something I'd do long-term (which okay... I tend to think only in the long-term so that might be a problem. Whoops). I know I'm going to find something that I love doing eventually and that someone will give little ol' me a chance. It'll probably happen when I least expect it so I'm trying not to worry too hard while still looking through job postings everywhere I can find them.

I don't know, y'all. I still haven't come to terms with the fact that I'm graduating in 17 days so also trying to think about post-grad life is making my brain hurt.
