Mid 20's Saga

So the first entry about this Saga I’m living. To beging..My life for the past 3 months has been job searching. After graduating college I worked a job with the University for a year which was a student job but somewhat fortunate circumstances allowed me to work there for an additional year. Being that it was a student job and I was no longer a student the time spent there was used to web surf…look for jobs…and do odds and ends when that position ended I was happy to say the least. I was ready to start a life, start a career, and have a change of scenery. What I got was a 3 months job search, stuck in the same college town with barely any friends and those that I do have here are still in school so their time is limited.
 
God has blessed me to find employment through a temp agency another thing I learned from my friend Precious. I’m excited about the position it’s a legit title with legit work and the pay is gooooood. I still want a change in location though cause I’m still in a college town and only getting older by the day but having money to spend doesn’t make my evenings that bad. So now that the job conquest has taken a turn for the better I’ve decided to enjoy life with dating and trying to get some things crossed off my bucket list while I have the money to do so. I started a blog about my dating life which in turn has been alright. My original thoughts was I would get on an online dating site and meet people and go on dates every week but it didn’t turn out like that lol but I always have the grand ideas and of course soon come to realize that things aren’t that simple but that doesn’t stop me. I’m an optimist and enthusiastic about everything not a bad way to live I say. That blog has now led into this one. So that’s where I’m at right now at the ripe young age of 24.
 
I feel like this blog would have been good to start during my job search struggles cause I feel like a lot of people in my age range can relate to that but I’m a person that lives moment to moment and day to day and I plan for the future and never really think about the past so I never really talk about my past but I don’t doubt that I’ll have some sort of relatable material. Still looking for a job in a city cause I grew up in a city and I don’t necessarily live in  a small college town but it is’nt Boston/Chicago/ Or New York City and that’s kind of my goal right now.

 

 

 

My Apologies

I just thought I would apologize ahead of time. This is pretty much a free write so I minimal proofing will be done and I’m bad with grammar in terms of punctuation and transitioning so I hope it’s not a struggle read. I am also not very athletic… what does that have to do with grammar…nothing, but I thought since I’m mentioning my flaws might as a well throw that one out there.

Thanks for Reading 🙂

Hello World!
 
I know typical title but hey I’m here to share my story which may or may not be typical I don’t know. I have been a closed off person for many many years but thanks to college and life struggles and just fate I have learned to open up and not only share my success but share my struggles and I have never felt more gratitude and appreciation for others than when I have shared my struggles. They say don’t share your problems with everyone cause not everyone wants to see you succeed and I believe that to an extent but I guess I’m choosing the right ones or more so God is putting the right ones in my life cause I have never felt more blessed with the people I’m surrounded by or those who I choose to share my life with via gchat/twitter/facebook. I know everyone in person but college graduation has separated us and technology has kept us together.
 
So why am I here. I have felt so blessed opening up and sharing with my friends cause I have always been the listener. I always listened to others people problems and shared my advice or offered my own but never reciprocated and it had nothing to do with the other persons it was just I felt as that if I couldn’t even talk to the people in my own household growing up  who am I supposed to talk to. So I feel like sharing my struggles have been a blessing to me and in turn hearing my story will be a blessing in some way to others. Not a story per say but just hearing about the life of someone in their Mid 20’s.
 
You grow up thinking that everything you plan and want to happen in your life will and I’m not here to stifle that thinking but more so just to share my life and how things didn’t go to according to plan but that I still have fate and also believe that any and all things that happen are meant to be and that it only betters you as a person in the end. When I was younger my idea of my Mid 20’s was that I would be a college graduate with a great job, engaged/in a serious relationship, and loving life. Well the last part is certainly true. I do love life and I wouldn’t say my job is great but I like it and  I am certainly blessed to be employed. I am embracing the freedom of being a single young woman with the world as her oyster per say.
 
Woman are socialized into thinking that the end goal for them is a husband and kids. Even though this wasn’t really stressed in my household the messages were still received from the media and my friends who were socialized to think the same way. Now I realize that may not be my ending and the way I’m enjoying life and my freedom right now I don’t know if I ever want to make that sacrifice but if anything I have learned from graduating from college and being unemployed and enduring a grueling job search for months on end is that your wants and needs are constantly changing and you can only speak for the now and live for the now but I do advice planning for the future. Plan A is God’s plan and yours is Plan B. I’ve now lost my train of thought….oh right the point of this blog hahahaha…The Saga of my Mid 20’s.
 
The blog is dedicated to my friend Precious. A complete stranger that ended up being my roommate at the last-minute and now has become one of my most trusted persons. She has really helped me a lot in the past year and some and this all began because of her. She’s has really helped me to open up and I’m actually tearing up at work typing this right now cause I am so thankful and never imagined being able to open up to a complete stranger but when circumstances have you ending up living with a person you don’t know and needing to take extra classes looks like it always ends up turning out for the best which I truly believe!
