Hi everyone, I’m so glad to meet you. I’m Nicole, and welcome to Uninspired.
Gosh, does anyone like talking about themselves? I find it so awkward, which I suppose is the first fact about me. Another, I guess, is that I am twenty-two years old, and currently in the process of learning how to adult, because my university said I couldn’t pretend to be an undergrad indefinitely after I got my degree. No– I left there (kicking and screaming) with a degree in Psychology and Creative Writing.
Another fact is that I freakin’ love my dog. His name is Jake and he’s a dopey, precious angel sent from above.
Now that I’ve got a B.A. in Psych, I have to go on to get a higher degree so I can afford to move out of my parents’ house and become a real-life adult who does taxes n’ stuff. I’m getting an M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy, because I want to help families develop the tools and skills to create healthy environments for their children. So far, it has been both hell on earth, and the most intensely introspective, eye-opening adventure of my life. I’m getting to know some wonderful people in my cohort who brighten my days, and this grad school experience, considerably.
The last thing I want to mention is that this blog is not about me giving you all advice on how to be a good twenty-something. In my humble opinion, there’s no one right way to get through this nonsense, and if there is, I’m certainly not doing it. I don’t work out consistently, and I ate a plate of pasta today absolutely smothered in cheese and washed it down with a Dr. Pepper. I’m broke, my grades aren’t perfect, and when I try to crochet my projects always come out crooked for some absurd fucking reason. I have little to offer you in the realm of advice. I am writing this blog to share my growing pains with you, because I have a hunch that even though we all have different perspectives on the right way to do all this, at the heart of it, we’re all facing similar challenges. So please, click the links below to see some of my most popular content, and share your perspective on it. Help each other grow and learn. At Uninspired, I’m creating a thriving community of twenty-somethings who are all stumbling through the mess in our own ways, together.
~Sending you all positive vibes~
