Hello and welcome Diary of a Southern Millennial!
I’m a 20-something trying to make it through life. I was born and raised in southern Louisiana, graduated from LSU (geaux tigers!), and recently completed my master’s degree in Scotland (yes, Scotland) in Anatomy and Advanced Forensic Anthropology. Fancy right? Despite months of applying beforehand, I ended up returning to the states empty-handed in the job department. But I’ve managed to make it work.
After deciding not to go back to school right away to get my PhD, I switched gears a bit. I’m now currently a full-time administrative assistant while I pursue a career in real estate and flipping houses. I already have a successful flipping project under my belt and can’t wait to start another!
I am happily engaged, and have plenty of stories to keep you all thoroughly entertained and inspired (I hope)! I workout semi-regularily, love to cook, love to read, and I have a strange knack for organizing the heck out of anything.
About the Blog:
While I was in that in-between phase of being finished with school and figuring out what I was doing with my life, Diary of a Southern Millennial was born.
Being a millennial is tough in today’s world. Many of us are still stumbling around in the dark when it comes to figuring out our lives. Between people calling us the “selfie generation” and complaining about our not-so-typical career goals, we hardly have time to figure out what the heck we’re actually doing.
My hope is that I can help with that – either by giving some advice, helping you do something, inspiring you though my adventures through life, or providing you with a community to guide and support you. The goal is to provide my fellow millennials with everything you need to get the hang of this adulting thing, while still providing you with all the things we actually love to do outside of our careers.
Because what’s life without a little fun?
My content is written with the idea of a balanced life in mind.
I’ve experienced and learned a lot in my 20-something years, and I hope to share that with all of you! At some point we’ll figure out this life thing, right? So get in touch!
