In this day and age, being a young adult can be messy!
If you’re anything like me, I’m sure you have experienced the pain and confusion that comes with trying to be the best person you can be as a young adult. In a sense, you feel like you’ve made it and that you have all the tools to face the challenges heading your way. But at the same time, you end up finding you’re naive to situations, either because the issue or person before you is something you were never prepared to handle. I know that struggle all too well.
Hi! I’m Brie, yes like the cheese. I am a 21 year old who currently resides in Phoenix, AZ. I have lived on my own for about a year with a roommate, my little orange tabby Sir Pumpkin! As a person I have always struggled with wanting to have my whole life figured out, and many people consider me to be extremely mature for my age. That being said, I still feel that I need to achieve more in every aspect of my life. That drive combined with the circumstances I have been in have taught me a lot about life very quickly and I am always passing that knowledge onto all the people around me. I am the advice giver to my friends and have been writing for as long as I can remember. So I thought…why not put them together and reach a bigger audience with a blog!
I will start by telling you what you need to hear. It is OKAY that you don’t have your whole life figured out yet. However, I understand the NEED to start putting all of the pieces together. My goal is to help give you the confidence and insight you need to do so. My promise to you is that whether you are looking to improve your dating life, your work life, the friendships you have, your finances or something as small as what movies to watch, that I will deliver the answers you need by writing about my personal life and experiences. My goal is to write things that you all want to hear, so believe me when I say you will be my inspiration!
Looking at my life now I can tell you that I never imagined I would be where I am now. When I was in my teens I went to two Art’s Schools to pursue vocal music and piano. I was determined to become famous and sing for a living. That was all I ever wanted. At one point or another it became too much for me, trying to balance an intense work load with music, while carrying this anxiety that my voice would never be enough. That was really hard, and at that point I needed a change. I attended a public high school where I got to enjoy homecoming dances, football games and so much more that I had never experienced. I joined the swim club, sang in the choir, performed in drama and even won a slam poetry contest. These years were some of my best years. However, not too long after that, my dating life began. I was single and ready to mingle! Unfortunately I was not that confident back then, I ended up with some pretty terrible guys and have experienced some pretty bad heart ache. Even still, I am stronger now because of it. I have also struggled getting my own place, I moved in with two different people and was kicked out by both of them. I did not feel like I could get a place by myself or do any better in life, and now I live in my own one bedroom apartment. I have a car, a reliable job, I am looking to pursue education and I am happy. I am excited to share all of the fine details with you guys on some of those topics because I know that there are so many people out there going through some of the same things that I did. I am hoping that by me opening up I can help someone else do the same in their life.
I do not like pizza, I love to watch anime, I love chicken wings & pasta, I’m an aspiring cat lady, I still sing from time to time, I always get my nails done, I’m a Libra, and I am always making sarcastic comments.
Now that I have opened up about myself and this blog I hope that you will subscribe. I look forward to hearing from you and growing this page together! Feel free to message me anytime if you have an input on things you would like to see here, as well. Thank you for reading and enjoy!
