Everytime I ask my friends how they are doing we all answer the same- “tired”. And it does not help that I can’t get peace and quiet in the library, or a seat with an electric plug. So much to do, so little time :(
Yesterday I found out one of my ex-boyfriend’s is having a baby with a girl he has barely been together with for one year. This is not the first couple I have heard get knocked up so quickly (Does anyone pay attention to sex ed anymore?) but it brings up different emotions when it is somebody you know, somebody you used to be close with. All I can think of is:
1.) How could you be so stupid?
2.) How sad it is to live the rest of your life stressed because you do not have a college degree or career and are forced to work two part-time jobs that you don’t enjoy to make end’s meet.
3.) How difficult it will be to raise a child with somebody you are still learning about
But I am sure this baby will bring some good as well, children bring a special type of happiness that others can’t. I ended this former relationship because my ex did not know how to be happy with himself. Insecurity, jealousy, and immature attitude in general got the best of us. I wanted him to find happiness with himself but instead he hopped into a new relationship and well, I guess this is what happens. Perhaps this baby will bring the happiness in his life that he has been searching for. Hope for the best
, but expect the worst.
This summer I am going to take a swimming course at De Anza :D
