Today was my second day of having a job. Yes, an actual job. And to tell you the truth, it isn't too bad....yet. I mean, a job is a job, right? As a result of that, I now have more of a right to say the following:

Hello real world. Nice to meet you.

Yep, I'm getting to that age now where, whether I like it or not, the real world is going to start creeping up to me. I mean, lets look at where I'm heading/already at:
  1. I have a job.
  2. I'm about to be a senior once school starts up again (thank goodness).
  3. I've had my license for awhile now.
  4. I turn 18 this year.

Need I continue? All that is just a drawn out version of me saying that good ol' Connor is growing up. As my family would probably say, where has the time gone? Honestly, it feels like just yesterday I was growing up in the City of Chicago, playing baseball all the time and enjoying what many refer to as "childhood innocence". Fast forward some years and a move to Elgin later, and now I'm roughly a year away from stepping on a college campus as an actual college student and not just a visitor. Just looking and talking to all my friends who have just recently graduated, it definitely looks like a good ass feeling having finished high school. Especially considering the high school they went to, and that I currently still go to.

I can't tell how excited I'll be to finally permanently leave Central, but that's a topic for another entry.

Fact of the matter is that I'm going out into the real world pretty quick. Whether or not that's a good thing or bad thing remains to be seen. What I do know, however, is this: I know it'll be tricky, but I'm ready for whatever the real world holds.

Oh, and also this: I don't have to 100% worry about that stuff for roughly a year. So, until then, I'm just gonna kick it. 

Pardon my indulgence.
