Living Life as a Twenty Something

Raise your hand if you couldn't wait to turn Twenty One!!!! That was me all day. I thought eighteen was exciting but nope turning twenty one was the moment I was waiting for. All of a sudden in my mind I was too good for the all ages functions and was going to be able to sit at the bar. Yes because I'm a grown women.

The twenty somethings have been an enjoyable time for me. Being a teenager, you carefree for the most part and its is wonderful but being twenty something is where life truly begins. Going to bars and 21 and over events for the first time was a whole new element. I was so ready to take on this journey.

In my twenties travelling is at an all time high. I always been a traveler but I was always too young to do certain things when it was family trips. So imagine my excitement when I went to California for my Twenty first birthday. I was about sixteen the last time and wasn't able to go anywhere on my own, I needed one of my sisters or my dad to be present. From my first step in Lax I just knew I was now unstoppable. Free to go anywhere at any time.

Being twenty something is all fun and games until life got real real quick. I did some college and then I went school for medical assistant. I thought life was falling into place. Oh but now I have to get a job in the medical field, that wasn't easy like they said it would be. Being twenty something at this point was a drag. I started being torn between going out or saving because with no job you have nothing to spend. So I started getting little random jobs to support my habits of partying and shopping. Life was back on track and zoom I was off on another trip. Miami baby life was sweet again. That will be in another post because Miami was truly amazing.

Fast forward at Twenty five, the twenty somethings are slowly turning into the thirty somethings. At twenty five I imagined being married with kids and doing my dream job. Yeah because at fifteen twenty five just sounds like you going to have it all together SIKE!!! That could be the case for most but not for me. I have no kids yet and marriage is simply a conversation I have with friends. Life gets a little bit clearer I'm living on my own, purchased my own car and still traveling when I can. 

I learned in the twenties that its not just me going through things. Life is happening to everyone. Friends are coming and going, not on a bad note but sometimes you may out grow people. Some friends are starting families so they may not be able to call you every day and that is ok. Just pick up where we left off and smile. I also learned that there is nothing wrong with making new friends. New friends bring new adventures and I'm all for adventure.

Being twenty something you learn many things. Life doesn't always go as planned. I learned to just go with the flow. Enjoy it! Don't rush the twenties. If you want to go on that trip book it. You like that man say something its 2017 ladies we can go after what we like too. Heartbreaks will come but the healing process can be helped with wine. Wine is the answer to it all in your twenties. Do whatever makes your heart happy because no matter age I am its all about living and learning.

With a few more years left as a twenty something. I want to continue to work on becoming the best version of myself. The greatest journey being in my twenties I must say is starting this blog. That I hope people will enjoy.

Life with my blog: The Beginning

I haven't been blogging for too long actually its only been about a month. Even though its hasn't been too long a few things have changed in my daily routine. All good changes of course. I'm so happy that I took this chance and moved forward with my blog. 
I'm more organized

  Since I started the blog I now own a planner (shocked face). Never in my life did I really write things down. I always been pretty good at remembering when events were and just little things like what I did last Tuesday. That's not really the case so much with so much on my brain all the days are one blurred line. Between work, remembering events and knowing when and what I'm going to post it gets a little hectic. So thanks to one of my friends I have a nice simple cute planner that I carry every where with me. I also now own a cute notebook that fits perfectly in my purses, so when I have my light bulb moments i can write them down. 
I focus on all angles in pictures

The Adult Life chose Me!

I remember when I was a little young thing and my parents would tell me don't rush to grow up? Well as much as I hate to admit it they was on to something. Adulting isn't what I imagined it to be. Like wait I have to pay bills and how do you shop for car insurance *scratches head*. I'm 27 years old and I'm still trying to figure out how to adult properly. The adult life just kind of came out of no where in 2014 I moved out on my own and I was very overjoyed. The feeling was amazing my own place *cues the no pants dance*. Friends would come visit and we would sip the wine that I bought in my very own wine glasses. Yup that's when I figured adulting was going to be great. Now that I have this nice cool apartment I need electricity OH!! How much does that cost and who do I call was my first questions. Along with getting electricity I needed cable, so that was another journey in itself. Then to watch t.v I needed a couch and an actual T.V each day my list of real resp…

Life: Enjoying The Unexpected

I'm sure we can all agree that Life never goes as planned. We all imagine the life we're going to have at a very young age and then we get older and its no so what we imagined. 
There was a time in my life that I swore up and down I would be married at twenty five and have kids. HA!!! Not quite how things turned out. By the time I was Twenty five I went through many heartbreaks and not one was marriage material. I would think to my self what am I doing wrong. I then I realized that there is nothing wrong with not being married with children.
I'm happy things don't always work out the way I plan. Some times the things we want are not exactly right for us. I'm a true believer in whats for me will come my way. Living with too many expectations you set yourself up for disappointment. 
Imagine if I did get the life I imagined. Would I truly have been happy? I experienced so much in my 27 years of life that I can't see life any other way. Things aren't perfect b…
