These young singles aren’t called Fit and Fab for nothing. Confident, cosmopolitan and well-educated, they’re either employed in private industry or continuing their tertiary studies and perhaps looking for a part-time job to keep up the rent. Though not as high-earning as some Metrotechs, nor living in the fanciest apartments, they’re on their way, and are optimistic about their future.
Walk with Me
Sometimes I think 24 hours in the day aren’t enough! Take my day so far: I just got back from my morning shift on reception at the local gym and now I have to spend the rest of the afternoon at uni meeting with my study group to finish off this presentation we have to do tomorrow. I feel a bit guilty because I haven’t finished my part yet, but I didn’t even get a chance to cook myself dinner last night. Like I said, there aren’t enough hours in the day!
After uni, I’ve got rugby practice, then I WILL do the food shopping! I’ve had to order pizza a few too many times this month, mainly because I haven’t had time to go to the supermarket. I think I’ve nearly exhausted the excuse that I’m ‘bulking’. Which reminds me: lucky I squeezed in an early morning sesh at the gym before my shift, because tomorrow night I’ll be skipping training to go see my mate’s band playing at The Kings Arms.
I know it sounds like I’m complaining, but all these things keeping me busy are really my own choice. I need to keep working at the gym so I can pay for rent in my share flat. Sure, I know I could move back home and mum would be more than happy, but I like living away from home, it gives me the independence I crave and motivates me to finish my post-grad course. After that I’ll be earning way more than my friends and won’t have any problem keeping up with the rent … in fact, by then I’d like to think I’ll be living somewhere a bit more upmarket.
