Later in the conversation, one of my friends told us someone she knew just found out she was pregnant. This elicited a collective "yay" from everyone else around the table and a simultaneous "oh no" from me. Yes, that is my automatic, innate reaction to the idea of pregnancy. I should seriously be on birth control for the rest of my life.
It seems like everyone around me is growing up at lightening speed and I feel very... unfledged. I'm not even sure what I want right now (besides my master's, and equality, and one of those deep dish pizzas from Domino's), but I feel very pressured to have certain things. Things like relationships and houses, or at least an apartment that has a washing machine. But the most expensive thing I own is a vacuum, and I can't even fathom having to share my room. Or my time. Or that pizza. So, it seems I'm not quite where a lot of other people my age are, but I'd like to think that that's okay. So that's okay.
