I’ve been talking to several friends who’ve graduated and gotten their own apartments. I’m excited as I listen to them (I’ve got 1.5years left). The prospect of being through with school terrifies me— I’ve never been anything other than a student before— but I want my own house. I want a cottage on the outskirts of Nashville, a cheap place that is my own, a place with a garden, a kitchen, a front porch, a home where I use my good china every single day.
I find myself frequenting home decor stores, imagining what my place would look like, what wallcolors I'd use, making pretend budgets for electricity, water, maintenance, etc.
Ideally, I’d apply to be a middle school teacher, although I’d wait a year or so after I graduated. During that year, I’d try to find work at a daycare or small jobs to work with children, build my resume, etc. I'd find odd jobs and I’d sing folk or jazz at local clubs in the city, go to art shows, and enjoy my time.
