    The Expectations Of A 22 Year Old

    I'm almost pretty sure I'm not the only 22 year old that has high expectations for myself and life in general. I mean sure I'm still "young" and I have "a long ways to go", but is any of that really suppose to make me feel better? Should I not want more just because I'm less than a couple of decades away from being forty? I can't be the only one freaking out about how fast time is flying by, and still I have no idea where I'm going to be in the next five years. Heck the next five months even! I mean in a perfect world, I should be on my way to:

    1. Becoming a published author of five successful romance novels and counting.

    2. Living in my loft with a GORGEOUS view!

    3. And an even more gorgeous boy toy *clears throat* I mean boyfriend.

    4. Running my successful online boutique from the comfort of my bedroom.

    5. Driving a used car at least...

    6. Being able to walk through Macy's without feeling too poor to even glance at the Michael Kors shoulder bags.

    7. I don't need millions just...enough.

    8. I should be able to go to sleep worry-free...

    9. Even if I don't get enough sleep the night before. I want to wake up the next morning happy and optimistic...

    10. At least by the time I'm 24 I should have seven out of nine of these things....right? Is that really too much to ask for?
