What 22 Means For Those Of Us Who Aren’t Taylor Swift

Taylor-Swift-22-Video-Feature

It seems like a bad time to try to land a first job
What with the economy, uh oh, uh oh
It seems like a bad time to graduate from college
Guess I’ll join the welfare mob, uh oh, uh oh

Nooooo
We’re lonely, broke, misled, and jobless all at once now
It’s the worst and awful
Oh, no
Today’s the day I have to move back to my hometown
Right now

Uh oh
I don’t know about you,
But I’m feeling 22
I’ve got no plan right now
My God, I am so screwed
Do you feel like me?
Do you think we’ll make it through?
Everything just sucks right now
I wish I’d never turned

It seems like one of those times
My life is over
I’m at home with my parents, uh oh, uh oh (Thanks a lot Obama, anyway, ew)
It seems like one of those times
I question student loans and stare at my degree
I’ll cry myself to sleep

Nooooo
We’re lonely, broke, mislead, and jobless in an instant
It’s the worst and awful
Oh, no
Tonight’s the night I apply for government assistance
Listen

Uh oh
I don’t know about you,
But I’m feeling 22
I’ve got a Comm degree
So what does that do?
I’ve applied for a thousand jobs
But it’s just no use
Everything just sucks right now
I wish I’d never turned

Catie struggles with adulthood and has been celebrating her 21st birthday for the past three years. She attended college in the nation’s capital and to this day is angry that Pit Bull lied to her, as you cannot, in fact, party on The White House lawn. Prior to her success with PGP, Catie was most famous for being featured in her hometown newspaper regarding her 5th grade Science Fair Project for which she did not place. In her spare time, she enjoys attributing famous historical quotes to Marilyn Monroe and getting in fights with thirteen year olds on twitter. Email: catie@grandex.co
