If you complain about how “everyone” your age is getting married/having children while you’re “enjoying being young”, you really bug me. Some people want a family and don’t want to stay stuck in college party limbo. I don’t see why that bothers you so much. If you’re enjoying acting young, cool. But if people choose to skip all that and grow up I don’t get why it’s a bad thing.
Michael and I are in Gainesville for a few days. He wants to party and hang out with all of his friends and that’s okay because it’ll be the last time he will get to for a while.
Everything here is pretty much the same as it was when we left. Everyone is doing the same thing, only dating different people. It’s what I expected, everyone’s young and it’s a college town. Party’s and bullshit and school/work.
I know I’m different now and I can even tell Michael is different too. We have to be since we’re getting ready to be parents. But it’s also something that we didn’t prepare for or decide - the change is internal and unintentional and I’m so glad for it. It’s obvious we’re not kids anymore.

We’re all moved in and almost done unpacking.
Michael’s aunt’s friend who gave us the furniture also gave us boxes of plates and glassware and crystal. It was so unexpected, but so wonderful! We’ve cleaned most of the glass and I’ve used some of them for the bathroom and bedroom. There’s still a ton of plates to wash, tho.
And next week we are going down to Gainesville to get our dog so our little family is (almost) complete.
I’m getting really frustrated with this whole moving process. It just feels like I have no say in anything. Just because we’re both young, Michael’s mom and aunts are trying to give us all of this help and advice and not letting me decide anything on my own.
Look, I’ve lived on my own for years, I’ve also worked as a housekeeper helping my mom for a summer. If I learned anything from my childhood, it’s to be very clean. Michael isn’t the first boyfriend I’ve lived with. I know how to put a home together, I know how to keep a home clean, I know exactly what I need and don’t need.
If I hear “use this one, because blah blah blah” or “no, you don’t need this because blah blah blah” or “you need this” one more time I’m going to lose it.
I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, I’m very appreciative of the help we are getting. But for the love of god I know what we need for our home and I know how to have a home.
And Michael is just pissing me off, but it goes back to feeling like I have no say in anything right now.
What’s most frustrating is that everyone is so well-intentioned, that I feel like a jackass for being so upset.
