Commitment in your 20’s

Okay, so I spent some time creeping old friends and classmates on Facebook last night.

I feel like I need to address what everyone is thinking. Why the fuck is everyone having babies?

Sorry, I need to be more specific. Why are my former classmates who barely graduated highschool, didn’t go to college, work minimum-wage jobs, and make-up/break-up with their boyfriends every other weeks having babies?! And how do they still find the time to hit up all of the clubs on the weekends?

I know this sounds super judgmental but hear me out. From where I’m sitting, you don’t have your shit together. In fact, I don’t think any of us do. Your twenties are a big hot mess. Everyone’s still figuring it out and having sex with all of their friends from college. It’s pretty incestuous. Then, one person gets their shit together which pressures everyone around them to get it together, too. Then we all walk around with briefcases, acting like adults until it feels natural.

So I creeped some old classmates and saw that four girls my age are mothers. Two of them already have two kids each. I don’t understand why people are having kids so young. I can’t even commit to a houseplant and these people are already committing to children and a life with their boyfriends.

One of them is pretty entertaining. She posts every little detail about her private life on Facebook. She’s all “Oh I hate drama! Don’t bring your drama to me!” meanwhile, she will air her dirty laundry on Facebook for all to see. She constantly harps on her on again, off again boyfriend/father of her children–“Where can I get a real man?” Cringeworthy.

I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely not ready for motherhood.

  1. I’m 35 and still not ready. I doubt I will ever be!

  2. Omg, I ask myself that about my old classmates allllll the time! And sometimes there’s the really awkward moments when you run into someone, and you talk aboutyour free and carefree life and they mention kids and you’re like, “oh… um, awesome…”

  3. lmao…sounds like me. Spiderman at the desk. 😉

  4. Ha. I was googling silly meme pictures of chronic b.!tch face and stumbled across your post about ppl having kids. You are not alone. My wife and I find it increasingly hard to find cool people who haven’t thrown their young freedom away. I especially hate how these f ups like acting all smug. I mean, if you were too dumb to not jimmy up you’ve kind of lost all credibility. What’s also sad is no one immune. I’m an engineer and I remember I had a co worker who just got married and he immediately got his wife pregnant. I asked, “isn’t she going to school?” He said “she’ll only take one class until we can leave the baby with a sitter” then I said “ok. That’s all good but, she’s going to school for a degree. When she’s done she’ll want a career in what she spent all her/your money on learning. So what about the kid?” His response “we haven’t thought of that”. I mean come on. COME ON! Uhhhhh
