Sometimes I am truly amazed by how different my life is compared to my friends that I graduated with. I try to keep up with them via Facebook, and I smile and have conversations when I happen to run into them from time to time. But it is so crazy how little I really have to talk about with them. It's almost like I'm a 30 year old woman talking to a bunch of teenagers.
This might kinda suck for my social life, but really, I could care less. I love where I am. I love that I am basically a 20 year old housewife and a mother to be, as well as a full-time student. I wouldn't change it for the world!
But the thing that really irks me is that some people either look down on me, feel sorry for me, or think I'm just plain crazy. It's like people think since I'm young, I must not know what I really want in life. And yes, there are times where I might say, "hmm, do I really wanna be a teacher?" But honestly, ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've been nothing but happy. The first couple of minutes after seeing the positive test were scary, I was just scared, but after that passed I was filled with joy and anticipation.
Now I find myself looking at baby stuff all the time and dreaming about my little bun in the oven! I know I will have to wait a few years for my friends to mature to the level that I am at now, for them to get engaged, married, and have kids before I will really be able to relate and enjoy their company. Until then, I am just going to sit back and relish in my amazing life with my wonderful fiance and our precious little one (who needs to hurry up and get here).
