Are we doing it right?

So I came across this tweet the other day and it got my wheels turning.

I saw this and started thinking about my friends and how their lives are set up. Of course I have a few friends who had a kid or 2 before they were 25 but most of us are either near 30 and still childless or had kids after obtaining at least one degree.

 

 

*DISCLAIMER: Before I get into this, I have nothing against anyone who had kids early or did not graduate from college or whatever it may be.

As I read the article that accompanied the tweet, I saw how it was comparing our (millinnials) generation to what people were doing in 1975. It basically stated that we do not see having a family as a priority and our generation is getting married and starting families older. My first thought was that societies standards are definitely higher than they were back then plus just to live a comfortable life a high school diploma just won’t cut it, unless the military is what you want.


Time passed I kind of forgot about this whole discussion, then I came across this gem:

And BINGO!!!!!! Couldn’t have said it better myself! We’ve sat around and watched our parents live paycheck to paycheck to give us a comfortable life and don’t want to repeat that cycle. In a nutshell, we millennials just want to work smarter, not harder.

 

 

Let me know what you think in the comments!!

How did I get here…

So here I am at a fork trying to figure out what to do next…I see everyone around me living out my dreams and I don’t understand why I’m not getting these opportunities. Yes, everyone says what God has for you is for you but in my mind, I’m like a toddler screaming “God you’re giving all of my things away! “..

REWIND

Let me introduce myself… I’m Neesh, a 20something living in Houston trying to navigate through life. I’m a teacher by day and a dreamer by night. I became a teacher kind of by fluke accident but here I am 4 years in this profession. I love the kids I do but it’s not enough.

Let’s go back even further, I was a comm major in college with dreams of being a music producer, PR specialist, something…not a TEACHER?! Somewhere along the line I gave up on my dream because I felt it was too hard and I wanted to be “successful” NOW and sad to say I’m regretting it now.

I’m sure you didn’t come here to read about my complaints so let’s move forward.

I’m starting this blog to wake up the writer in me and share my view as I navigate through this crazy world. So be prepared to laugh with me, cry with me and cringe with me as I share my experiences!

-Love,

Neesh
