My name is Reasonably Selenium, and I am almost an adult, but I am still living at my parent's house. I have no source of income right now, and I need to save up so I don't end up in a cardboard box in the next decade. YouTube is not going to be a solution anymore, especially because of the new requirements they are enforcing. The blog itself isn't going to make me enough money to live on my own either. I have to grow up, get a job, and learn the essentials of becoming an adult.
I will be keeping track of my progress of becoming an adult on this new blog series. This way, people who want to follow my story can check out new releases, and possibly learn about what it feels like to transition to the real world. I have a lot to learn about, and my knowledge has only touched the surface of the many necessities I will need to look out for. My past work experiences and current course in finances should help me reach my personal educational goals, and I hope to expand my learning by going to college. But getting a job and not catching writer's block has to come first before I get there.
I used to volunteer at a few restaurants in order to feel how working at a job really is. From October 2014 to May 2015, I have worked at Subway, Chili's, CVS Pharmacy, and even the library. They had me do several chores there; such as washing dishes, packaging food, sweeping the floor, cleaning the windows, putting products on the shelf, and taking out the trash. These experiences will help me get a real job and earn some money so I can advance my education. I will then be able to pursue the career I wish.
Selecting a college will be a great challenge I will face. Hopefully, a smaller college will be an option for me when I get my scholarships. If not, I will have to go to a community college while I work trying to save up money for one. My parents have left me a savings account which contains money I will need in case something fails. But I would rather select the right one and pursue getting good grades. Once I complete college, I will be able to get into my career.
This marks the end of this post. I do not have much to say as I have not really made any progress yet. Aclevo is one of my biggest priorities, but I need money in order to keep the lights on when I get older. I also have to finish school before I start going to a college or get a job, as my grades are very important to me. I also have to see a couple of doctors to make sure I'm physically ready to become an adult, and if not get my health fixed so I can be ready. Thanks for reading this post!
