TGBTL: Almost but not quite

Girl Between the Lines Link up

We all imagined what our lives would be like when we were "grown up".. . how does that compare to what your life looks like now?? 

I'm pretty sure that I was going to be a professional basketball player when I "grew up", I was going to change the world, one jump shot at a time. I was well on my way, playing Division 2 basketball in college, except I quit playing after my sophmore year (and I was playing D2) and haven't touched a basketball for more than 365 days. I just knew I'd go to college then I'd get married and then I'd have kids (like real ones, tiny humans, not ones with fur).

My life today looks something like this: a 30-almost 30something with a mortgage no place to live and a dog. I've got one of those good government jobs that gives me enough time off to travel. I'm not saving the world and I'm definitely not playing basketball to save said world.

Even though my life looks nothing like what I thought it would be at 30-almost 30something, there are a few things that I thought would be there and are there. My family is great. I have some of the best friends anyone could ask for, my dog is cooler than your dog, and I get to travel alot!

So does my life look like I thought it would? Heck no! but it ain't bad!
