Darling your head’s not right
I am 21, and I have the biggest dream to become a police officer. I love my career so much, and I speak about it with such confidence. But sometimes I wonder, if all of this hard work will be worth it. I have and still sacrifice so much. I want to be the 21 year old with Fridays off to hit the bars with friends or go to a baseball game. But I can’t, because my Friday nights are either spent at home typing papers, studying, or at work. I am tired. I am so tired of being jealous of every 21 year old that has time to socialize. Socializing is a privilege for me. I have a year left of college and I am done. Now, I wonder, pray, and hope that in the end this is all worth it. That in the end giving up my Fridays nights and weekends pays off. I just want a normal life outside of school and work.
