Adulthood is weird. You have to work to live, you have bills, your metabolism is now a laugh, and making friends is hard.
Unless you have a workplace or a social activity filled with similar minds, it’s hard to meet people. You have to really put yourself out there to create friendships, and even more effort needs to go in to maintain them. That is hard!
As a new adult in the world, I am discovering this and am finding myself in a slump while I seek brunch buds and shopping partners. While it’s been difficult and I find myself sitting in my apartment alone, I know that life is about taking challenges and showing them who’s boss.
Now, who’s ready for some truths I’ve found on my journey!
As I finally settle into my new life in suburban Portland, I find myself realizing that you can’t move to a new place and be in your comfort zone. Building a new life means challenges your norm and that’s what I need to start doing.

We all know that school work is incredibly important as a student. And in university you’re basically paying to do it! This is a priority in the highest and deserves a lot of your time and energy. I find the best way to make sure that I am giving the right amount to my school work is to make a schedule of when my work is due and when I want to actually do the assignment.
