Hello, friends! How is everyone?!
I'm great, thanks for asking! ;)
Well, folks.... I've officially graduated college with a Bachelor of Arts degree! This happened May 16th and I could not be more excited! Life has been a whirlwind as of late. I graduated and moved back to Kansas City in a flood all in the same day. Boy, was that a rain storm to remember... I was driving and could feel water splashing up on my feet through the gas pedal. I know, I know... You should never drive through standing water but I literally could not see the road because the rain was coming down in sheets and my windshield wipers couldn't keep up. It was a ride full of prayers and Hail Marys but we made it!
Speaking of moving, yes, I did move back in with my parents. Here's my take on it: Yes, it's not ideal BUT they live in KC (where I was looking for jobs) and will let me live and eat there FOR FREE. Why would I not live there considering I am a poor college student with loans to pay off?! A couple of weeks ago, I entertained moving in an apartment in downtown KC with a good friend but then decided it was not a responsible decision. Would it be fun? You better believe it! Was I ready financially? No. But my time will come and when it does, I will fully embrace the opportunity to live on my own and be financially independent.
In addition to graduating and moving, I accepted a job last Friday! It isn't technically official due to pending background checks (holding my breath on this one... I kid!) but I am so thrilled! I start next Monday! I'll update more upon starting.
So there you have it, a small rundown of my life for the last month or so. I am so grateful everything fell into place. I knew it would but when you spend five months looking for a job, sometimes you can have some doubts. I'm blessed, y'all!
