My first inclination is always to lie.
'Oh yeah I'm still working at Katies but thats because I'm finishing my PhD in Koala Caring and Bryce and I have a perfect relationship with no ups or downs and oh yeah, we are getting married next week and we live in a penthouse in the city with our Chihuahua. Oh and I forgot I've lost like 20 kilos since school, can't you notice? Here, look at my six pack'
Maybe, its because the truth of my life since school is quite mundane, or maybe its because I feel the ridiculous need to impress everyone with my successes. I don't know, but what I do know is that I'm not the only one who feels like this. We are all completely bombarded everyday with this obsession humanity has with 'success', scroll through your insagram feed and you will definately find atleast 3 quotes about it and constant photos of hot people with thier perfect pretty babies, tanning by the pool with that stupid little hashtag: #goals.
In my opinion success is not money, or the ability to make other people jealous, its when you are happy with the effort you have put into something you are unbelievebly and completley passionate about.
