2. Expectation: Going to the gym every day after work.

3. Expectations: Meeting someone special spontaneously.

Reality: Meeting people online.

4. Expectation: Paying off your student loans within a few years.

Reality: Never happening.

5. Expectation: Cooking cheap, healthier meals for yourself.

Reality: Drive-thru and delivery.

6. Expectation: Using your vacation days to travel.

Reality: Using your vacation days for hangovers.
