So, there are a number of ways one can handle rejection. Wallow in it, get over it, learn from it or my personal favorite, pretend it didn't even happen and continue as planned.

Okay, along with this whole idea about being an adult and taking my life into my own hands and doing what I want to do comes the inevitable feeling/knowledge/fear, what have you, that you (meaning I) just can't do it! Ahahahahhhh! I am pushing myself to open up and meet new people and not be afraid to be my own confident self. This is all well and good when there is nothing on the line and I am not too concerned with the outcome of my particular actions. When I want things to go a certain way, or when I hope for the best, I am weighed down by the fear of the absolute worst. So much so that I will take no action at all and dissolve the idea all together. My own self-diagnosis is that I secretly and sub-consciously do not want to leave my comfort zone as being identified as the independent single girl who can totally rely on herself and needs no one. I believe that some of that is true but when I go to bed at night in my quiet little apartment, just for a moment, I feel totally alone. Some nights this is a good thing, but more often than not, I wish I had someone there with me. Especially when I make hilarious comments about something unbelievable on TV. Someone else needs to laugh, and I need to not feel like I am talking to myself.

So, I read this article the other day about students who graduate from college and still don't feel prepared for the 'real world'. Basically it argued that (mostly single) students who finish college have a hard time transitioning into adulthood, even though many are between 21-26. It is almost like a new kind of adolescence full of angst and confusion as young adults try to figure out what their next step is while trying to maintain the 'fun and carefree' attitude of college life while getting a job in their field, or being disappointed by the lack of jobs available in their field.I found this interesting because I graduated about 4 years ago and only recently, probably within the last year, have I begun to feel like an adult. I think that a series of little events occurred that somehow changed my view of my own life. For the most part, moving to Seattle and finding my perfect job was the catalyst to start it all.
