It took me quite awhile to create this site, and almost just as long to start this first blog post. As a chronic over-thinker and a professional procrastinator, I have a tendency to push things off to the end of my mental to-do list until they’ve collected a copious amount of brain dust, or someone is yelling at me to complete the darn thing. But here we are! In the spirit of turning a new leaf I am embracing the crazy amount of changes going on in my life, and trying to change in pace with them. I may have spent the better part of the past hours trying to choose a color scheme for this site but hey, baby steps right?

I’m a recent graduate of a tiny catholic school, beginning preparations for my move in day for college in exactly a month. I just turned 18 and started a full-time job, working more that 45 hours a week. I’ve got to start thinking about filling my closet with clothes that aren’t plaid uniform skirts, and I have no idea how to cook anything that isn’t easy Mac. If my life were a Disney show, this would be the part where they’d say ‘Good luck Charlie.’


Some big decisions are coming up in my life, and I need to start figuring out how to handle them. (In a way that doesn’t include, ‘why don’t I just think about it for a night..week….month?’) Do I know what I want this site to be? Not really. Am I prepared to do my own laundry? Kinda. Am I gonna survive Philly? Debatable. Can I schedule appointments over the phone without my mom? Absolutely not. But I’m sure we’ll all figure it out as we go. I think.


In the words of Max Depree, “We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.” Heres to new beginnings and learning how to adult now that I legally am one.
