An airing of the grown-up grievances, part 2:

1.  I have not been to the gym in 2 days and this concerns me.  Never before in my entire life have been concerned about not being at the gym in 2 days.  I went to the gym exactly 4 times throughout my entire college career and only worked out when I was unemployed last summer due to complete and total boredom, yet now I have conversations about pilates and running. 

2.  I spent the last half hour researching Roth IRAs and CDs.  I want to save money so I can buy a house one day and retire at a reasonable age.  As my cousin Josephina said via G chat: 

we’re goign to live for a really long time yo

grandpa is old as fuck [he is 94]. and we had better health care. so we’re probably going to die at like 120.

Thus, we need to start saving early and saving more.  I am just recently passed my “I will never get old” phase, so this was hard for me to wrap my head around.

3.  I think I’d like to have a boyfriend.  I am online dating with a fair amount of sincerity and able to admit (without fake vomiting) that I’d like to be in a stable and loving relationship with an individual who thinks I’m great- even when I’m being ridiculous or unladylike (which is often). 

I’m really bad at compromising and don’t like doing things I am not good at, so it might be a tough road to hoe, but I’m giving it a solid try.  Most of my friends have significant others and some are even mentioning engagements in their not so far away futures, so I think it is time to have grown-up relationships. And as it turns out, meeting guys at bar close does not a grown-up relationship make. 

So there we go, I’d like to become a marathon running 23 year old with a boyfriend and a Roth IRA account.  I’ve come a long way from the binge drinking, cigarettes smoking, making bad decisions 23 year old I was a 6 months ago. 
But I’m still going to Five Guys for lunch…
