I'm 20. I'm balancing a job with a double degree in Law. I have to worry about finding a girl to marry, start a family and provide for. I have to worry about money.

In short, I have responsibilities. And it ****ing sucks.

Anyone else miss being young? Going to school just to chill with friends, come home, play Xbox all night. No bills to pay etc.


Anyone else feel like this? I honestly miss being a kid.

Eh. I'm not gonna worry about getting married and starting a family until I'm financially secure, which likely won't happen until at least my late 20s.

Not just independent, but able to buy a house, pay for my children's education, all that good stuff.

yeah it sucks at first, but after the transitional stage it can get better if you want it to. thousands of adults still live today without any kind of responsibility. they are called "homeless"

I'm not completely out on my own yet, but I very much enjoy being grown up. Being at college is like the best of both worlds, you're still pretty taken care of, but you're an adult with freedom.

My bills aren't too bothersome. I worked for two years in high school saving up money, received social security for a few months when I was seventeen, and have a little bit of money coming that'll be mine once I'm 25. It's not terribly difficult to pay my own school fees (which are minimal, scholarships ftw), and car and health insurance. I can't wait to have a career that I love and a family that I love too.

Being a kid was pretty shitty.

You know what else sucks?

Your mother.

Anyway, im 25, got a job (Yeah the pay sucks but it's money) got bills, and some little debts but nothing to worry about.

Been married 3 years, daughter is nearly 2. Life ain't that bad also I get to play on the PS3 almost everynight.

While you don't have a wife (dunno about gf?) or kids my best advice is, if you can, save up whatever money you can.

If I could go back and save I would do and wouldn't go out (at least not as much)pissing it up the walls or on a friends floor.

To the bold, you're 20 ffs.

To the job/school thing: Everyone who goes to university does that, stop complaining. And worrying about your loans - you are getting a degree in law, god dammit. You're a well off brat going to get a great job after school and you're complaining. I can't even get a loan for school because of my credit (it's not bad, I just don't have any at all). I'm 21.

For the 20 thing, quite a few people my age are now engaged.... i just feel a bit left behind seeing as I'm single. I phrashed the OP badly. In due time I will have to worry about a family. Better?

So I'm a well off brat, am I? Working 16 hours a week in a freezer because I don't qualify for student allowance and I refuse to leech off my parents, whilst busting my arse off at Uni 9-5? Yeah, I'm such a brat...

So you're telling me I won't fall off, I'll just warp?

Ugh. Never mind.

sorry dude. but if it helps, when you warp you are disassembled molecularly and are reassembled on the other side. so technically you are dead and a new version of you is made.

The problem I am having atm is all of these second thoughts. My current study is not what I expected and I can't imagine myself (happily) doing this shit everyday till I'm 65 years old. My Dad says that's normal but I wan't to actually make something of this life you know?

Of course my real passion is music; writing it, playing it etc. But I just cannot seem to find a band to play with. Even if I could, I barely have any spare time on my hands. And I don't want to drop out like my brother did and be kind of a dissapointment to my family.

The fact that I have no gf just makes shit even more depressing

Things used to be alot simpler. Man I sound old

I'd say about 90% of my friends that went to Uni either;

a) don't have a job and can't get one
b) settle with a job that had feck all to do with with what they did at Uni

Having a degree in law is a little more promising than an English major or something like that.

I hate it when people complain about responsibility

it's really not bad.


I love being an adult just as much as I loved being a kid. even when I had no money living with my sister and we had to live paycheck to paycheck, It was awesome.


basically, quit being a fag ts.
It's over simplified, So what!

That's why you pick a practical major before you spend $100,000 on having a good time for four years.

No, applying yourself and being good at what you do gets you a job, and uni is a great place to do that and learn what you need. I hate when people say university sucks because they expect to do nothing, get a piece of paper and instantly land jobs. That's not how it works.

I used to feel like this, until I married my gf, traded my motorcycle for an rv, then traveled a wee bit with her before "settling." We live in an apartment, have about 3 bills, and generally have a chill time. Now we're moving out to Dallas to follow a dream we've both had for ages (not about moving to Texas, but the opportunity is there.) Idk, I've had an interesting run since I turned 18, including living abroad for a few years for cheap, joined the army, started a few bands and became a worship pastor. Now I'm picking up and leaving, to start over.

Adulthood is what you make it man, if Law is your dream, focus on that first, remember why you wanna do it, and just keep pushing through it.

everyday is another chance to turn it all around if shit is bad, there is no excuse to enjoy life because you are alive! you HAVE the chance to make everything what you want, thats more than what a lot of people can say!

Hippie.

The nice thing about adulthood is eventually it wears you down so bad that you forget you ever had dreams in the first place.

I'm 19, living at home and working on an engineering degree. I just landed a full time position at Ericsson for an 8 month internship that pays decently and my family still wants to take care of all my expenses. My workload and schedule is stressful though.

I couldn't give the slightest shit about thinking about marriage or family or whatever. That can wait for when I'm old.
