To blog or not to blog.........

Hello everyone!!

I decided awhile ago that I wanted to have my own blog. It seemed like the great thing to do, to share all my random thoughts, opinions, views, and experiences with like minded complete strangers. But I got kinda scared. You see, I used to keep journals and diaries all the time when I was a kid. Ultimately, they would all end up abandoned. However now that I am older, I miss being able to just write about my life. After admiring several different blogs from afar, I am now ready to have one of my own.

Being that my blog is titled, “My Quarter Life Crisis”, it will be fitting if I tell you a little about myself. I am a 25 year old female currently living in the Atlanta area. I am in that transition of leaving the young adult stage to full blown adulthood. I am currently in an entry level position of the field I went to college for (truly blessed because I know a lot of individuals cannot say the same), learning that a 9-5 is not me and developing myself to become a business owner.

I am currently on a mission to develop myself as an intellectual. My blog will include everything I feel is related to the transition into adult hood. We hear things such as “Oh he/she is just being a teenager.” Or “They are just going through a midlife crisis”. Well why no one warned the teenagers/young adults what was about to happen to them once the parents/authority figures have them figure things out for themselves? These years are supposed to be the best time of my life (like every stage), but to me it is the scariest. I feel helpless, indecisive, and panicked. I am at a point in my life where I am no longer planning for my future (school) and actually setting things into motion. Scared that I am not where I am suppose to be and looking around at my peers and friends and wondering why I am not where they are at.

I've spent so much time between the ages of 18 and 24 trying to come across like I know what in the heck is going on and like I have any idea what I'm doing. I have decided however, that it is officially time to embrace the fact that I do not know everything.

Feel free to comment and leave ideals of what you will like to discuss.
