I just realized that Thursday was my 4 year anniversary of graduating college. 4 years has seemed to fly by. I was reflecting on where I am now versus where I was 4 years ago. It’s depressing really.
Then: I had $35 K in student loans.
Now: I still have about $32K in student loans. I can’t pay the interest fast enough to bring down the principal
Then: I got a job at a huge company thinking I could move my way up and have a career.
Now: At the same company in a different position and no chance of moving up
Then: Started at said company making a low amount of a salary
Now: Make almost the same amount of money-after two ½ years with the company I was finally able to get one raise.
Then: No boyfriend
Now: A guy that I have had a crush on for 3 years that doesn’t notice me no matter what I do or say. Oh, and he thinks I’m obnoxious. I am forced to see and talk to him everyday until God moves me out of here. I like talking with him and seeing him, but it hurts me everytime I do.
Then: Not going to church
Now: Found a great church and have made lots of friends
Then: No pet
Now: Coolest cat on Earth, Jabba the Hutt
Then: 1 adorable nephew
Now: 3 adorable nephews
Overall, the last few months have been great in terms of church and meeting new friends. Financially and career wise though things are not going well. God has a plan and will provide for me as I need it. I just need to keep faith.
