My thoughts and plans for action on various topics.
As a 23 yr old college grad with a semi-decent job (which is also terribly boring and has nothing to do with my degree), I've found myself feeling like I've been there done that already. The transition from student to adult has troubled me more than I care to admit. But realistically, for 22 years I was working toward a tangible goal and now I just feel lost.

I have been told by someone very special to me that I need to find my "thing." Something I can take up as a hobby or possibly turn into a career later, but something that makes me happy and is all my own. I always run through hobbies like tissues during allergy season; fast. I bounce from puzzles to games, cross stitch, crochet, painting, photography, or even a ukulele. I feel like Stitch before Lilo- lost, confused, and angry with myself for feeling this way. I really have no reason to feel lost and down all the time; I live a good life and although money is tight lately I've never had to make many sacrifices.

So I guess this blog is me finding the thing that makes me, well, me. I'm not sure if people will want to know about me and my journey, but maybe some of you out there are feeling the same and with the help of the digital age we can all give each other advice.

    I felt this way a lot of times in my life. It's something to learn from, but also hard to overcome.

    Yeah, I definitely fell like I am headed in the right direction now. But it was very difficult. I had make some to make some tough choices, that ultimately made me much stronger but were still unpleasant. It's so hard being young! Plus I am an only child so I was pretty sheltered (a Disney princess some may say) which made the "real world" that much more tough and terrifying. The worst part was realizing you can't trust everyone. I always felt people acted with good intentions; now I know that's b.s lol. Since I wrote this post I've got a new boyfriend who's incredibly good to me and a fun job, so I'd say I did well, at least until life's next curveball!
