PostTyrian Worries

So by some miracle of nature I'm actually graduating. I mean, wow. Seeing as how I've missed so much school for personal reasons/illness/car crash, I thought I would be held back but by some miracle I've managed to make it to my second semester of senior year and I'm going to graduate like... what?

And with that comes prom and all that good senior stuff. I got asked to prom. That was weird. I have a boyfriend but this kid asked me anyway and he was going to pay for my ticket so why the hell not right?

And that means dress shopping and I'm just super confused like what the hell am I even doing?

I'm scared about moving to another state and going to college all on my own. I've accepted my acceptance and I'm going. There's no other way around it but I'm starting to doubt my ability to fend for myself? Like, I'm going to be completely on my own.

Granted, this isn't the first time on my own and last time I was left on my own I had two little siblings to look after and an alcoholic mom to deal with so me just taking care of myself shouldn't be so hard.

But I don't know. I've been working so I know what jobs are like. And I got my license (again) so there's no issue with that. I have my own car and I have a decent sum of money saved up to live off of until I can get a job out in Texas and secure myself.

But the thought of adulting on my own and being completely independent is horrifying and I'm not really sure I'm ready for that yet. Like, its going to happen and I need to suck it up and deal but it still scares me.

IDK how to cope with this.

Welcome to adulthood, where you're thrown in headfirst and expected to know how to adult!

Its weird because I've had absolutely jack shit help when it comes to adulting. Like, my one good role model died when I was 12 and I've kind of been feeling my way around life ever since then. School has done nothing to help me get ready for the real world. Like, Oh look guys I know algebra but how the fuck do I pay my taxes? kind of thing. You'd think that it would be important to teach kids stuff like balancing checkbooks, budgeting, paying taxes, ect but I guess as long as I know that the Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell I'm good?

I'm just freaking out kind of because I'm 18 and soon I'm going to be completely on my own with no one to help me and I'm just so not ready for this. Like, I've made so many important and life changing decisions like my major, and where I'm going to be living for the foreseeable to future and the university that I'm going to be pouring tens and thousands of dollars into in order for me to get even more education and I'm not even old enough to buy alcohol or rent a car yet.

I think I'm torn between hating everyone and shitting my pants in fear and that's not good.

It's okay to feel that way, I understand what you mean. If you ever need help you can always ask Oki and myself -- if you're near a computer with 'net connection, of course. We're still struggling to adult and we're twenty-five this year, but we can always try and give you answers if we have them.

Mad's right for I still struggle to adult as well and I turn twenty five in august and have a five year old son! We are all here to help you out anyway we can. I live in New Mexico and lived in Texas most of my life so I can def help if you have any questions about things there. Chin up and know you are not alone girl!

So far, it's very clear that you are not the only one that has felt the way that you have. But as long as you know at least one person that has had experience, and you know that you can go to them for help, then it won't be as bad.

So, here are a few things to burn through: For High School, you'll do fine. It's pretty much not really going to matter as much for you in the long run, but you're done with what's pretty fucking grueling, and you will never have to do it EVER AGAIN.

For life during college, here's the wisdom I can give: No matter what your major is, invest in classes and courses that will help in getting you a job. This will mean looking up what jobs will be in demand in the next few years, and figuring out what skill sets you will need. This doesn't mean giving up on your original major entirely (will go into this later), just something that can help you out for when you finish college and need some money.

 In the meantime, make sure that you are living somewhere that works for you. If you are living close by to campus, take advantage of staying at your family's home. If that's not going to work out, then it might be a good idea to stay on campus or close to campus. I can't say anything on personal experience with roommates, but there's a very good chance that it'll be a temporary thing before you can live on your own. Also, make sure that you get yourself a source of income and experience with some sort of part-time job, internship, or volunteer. And also be sure to network with people, like your classmates, club members (if you choose to join one), and your professors.

Going back a bit on majors, if you choose one in a creative field, it'll be difficult to find a job in that field. But here's what you've got to do: DON'T STOP MAKING THINGS. Even if things are rough, even if it's not that great, KEEP MOVING FORWARD, AND KEEP ON LEARNING. By the time you land something, all of those little failures will be NOTHING compared to what you have just came up with.

Just remember, the world may seem like all it is is just a bleak and miserable place from where you're standing, but it's much bigger than what you just see, and can hold wonders that you have yet to see. You just have to keep going onward.

After my brother graduates, I'll be moving back to California. It isn't as close but if you ever need anything I'd be happy to send a care package or two! I'm not gonna sugar coat much because I'm in the same boat, entering adulthood and going to college. I'm scared out of my mind and anxious but painting really helps me to relax and focus! If you ever need an ear you can pm me anytime c: Hang in there Tyrian~! owo

I just graduated last year and I'm kind of in the same position as you. Though, I haven't moved out, my major isn't decided, and I'm going to a community college instead of a top notch university because I wanted to save money. Though, you should pat yourself on the back for a moment because you're finishing up high school! You no longer have to step so much as a toe in that place ever again. 

I'm sorry if my advice is rather lacking in...well advice? But, I want you to know that you're not the only one who is terrified of figuring out the ways of being an adult and life. Enjoy yourself at prom, have a hell of a time at your prom than I did at mine. Just try to think about the positives once in a while, it sometimes helps me when I'm freaking out or down in the blues. Again, sorry if my (some what in a way) advice isn't helpful.
