Being an adult sucks sometimes. Sometimes it means being practical and making decisions you don't want to make.
My best friend invited me to go on a trip to Savannah, GA with her and some of her best friends. A Thursday - Sunday trip, renting a house with food and snacks, eating at Lady & Sons, etc. Sounds pretty fun right?
Well the downside is it costs $550+. At first I thought I could swing it, somehow. But upon closer inspection of my finances and monthly bills, it just isn't likely.
It breaks my heart.
I want to be there for her. I want to celebrate the weekend with her and her friends. I want to be included! But I don't want financial stress that I won't be able to pay the next round of car/renters/personal property insurance or be able to cover that unexpected life lemon (which inevitably would happen to me, trust me).
If I were young and stupid, I would say F-it I'm going. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I am not so stupid and I am responsible and financially I just don't think I can make it happen.
I. am. SO. bummed.
