Last week I was offered a new job and got to give notice at my work! This is exciting because the new job will be better pay and a better position. My current job was okay but I worked with two terrible, awful bullies. Where I work is a place with no HR...so even though I reported these two awful people to my supervisor, nothing had been done about their behavior. They are the whole reason I am leaving my current job.

Anyways...I have to move. I live in the US and I have to move states. This is not unlike moving countries within the EU (I think a lot of bloggers and readers on here are European). Each state here has different taxes and different laws. Finding an apartment was really challenging and I am going to be spending more on rent than I'd like. Moving is definitely the least fun part of getting a new job. The field in which I work does not pay well but I love it so...I will keep at it! I might complain occasionally about that but that is just because life certainly isn't perfect. I'm sure I will have some fun moving stories soon.

Apparently a quarter life crisis is a thing. I'm pretty sure I'm going through it right now. Anyone else just feel lost, like they aren't doing the right thing, aren't on the right path, and are generally not full fledged adults?

If you're American (like me) you have so much to worry about: being employed, our current political situation, the never-ending crushing threat of student debt, trying to stay fit, trying to find a partner, and trying to make your Instagram look like you have it all together. Why can't we all just let everyone see that we all don't have it together? Social media is such a facade. Look at half these blogs! All flowers and coffee...no one's daily life is like that. I feel like social media is just making us feel worse about ourselves and worry more. I'm hoping this will alleviate some of that. I want to show everyone that life sucks and it's okay.

As a 20-something American with a low paying job and crushing student debt, I still try to find the silver lining in life, even if that means calling bullshit on social media. Tip to everyone: try to throw in a REAL post every once in awhile! Maybe we can all have a laugh.
