24 and Unestablished


A week and a half ago I turned 24. I wasn’t exactly thrilled to be a year out of college, a year into my career, and another year older but birthdays are always fun (especially when friends and family make it special). It wasn’t until I saw a preview for a television show where the protagonist is 24  that I really got freaked out. This woman seemed to be well-established in her career with a serious relationship and living in beautiful home. I have none of that. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my job, I have great friends, the best family, and my apartment is just what I need but I am nowhere near as put together as this protagonist. After having a panic attack that I was falling behind and was not establishing myself enough I realized there is no rush. I’m ONLY 24! I have the rest of my life to figure things out.

This blog is going to be my struggle to establish myself in the next couple of years whether I fake it till I make it or actually figure things out. Either way, I am in no rush at all and hope I get “there” (where ever that may be) eventually and have fun doing it. I will post about fitness, fashion, foods, fun things in Atlanta and travels, my family and friends and how I attempt to establish myself in this southern sweet city.

A little about me: I am from Atlanta, GA and moved back here a year ago after graduating from the University of South Carolina. GO COCKS! Moving back was an interesting transition and a lot more difficult than I expected but I am thrilled to be back. I have been at my job for almost a year now and the people are amazing! I have learned so much and I am so grateful for all of my mentors and my “cube” of an office. My parents are the most caring and fun people who just celebrated 32 years of marriage! Congrats to them! My brother performs and lives on a cruise ship that goes around the world– his life is amazing and I am completely jealous every single day!

That’s me! I hope you enjoy!

  1. I’m the same way when it comes to feeling unestablished. In my head, I feel like one year out of school I should be doing way more which is so frustrating sometimes. But you’re right, there’s no need to rush!

  2. Yes, don’t feel pressured. It sounds like you have lots going for you. I did not feel established until my late 20s–I was always a late bloomer.

    Happy belated birthday as well.
