Young Professional, Single, And Figuring it out

As I embark on my adult life, I realize there are so many people I want to carry with my on this journey. Over the years, especially with the pandemic, there are so many details, thoughts, and experiencing that have formed the person I’m becoming that I haven’t been able to share with others. Consider this my effort to share the details of my life. I’ll try to include photos, changes, thoughts, experiences that I would tell you if we were catching up. There have been decisions I’ve made recently that I want people to understand the heart behind it. I want people to understand who I am, what I am doing, triumps. Failures, the whole gambit. It won’t be everything, somethings of course are left to people I trust, but in this I hope you understand who I am as a person.

Introduction:

The only way I could think of starting this was with the announcement that I will be moving to Dallas, Texas following graduation this upcoming spring. I have been accepted into a teaching program that operates in Dallas. I applied to Urban Teachers in early September after doing a deep dive on their website. I was pushed to final interviews a week after I submitted the application and later received an offer in November. I will be working to obtain a Masters in Arts in Teaching with American University, while working as an Elementary teacher* (after Year 1).

Purpose:

So consider this like a phone call at the end of the week, catching up over coffee, or a late night drive. While there are some things I will be maintaining my privacy about, there is plenty of things I would be excited to share with extended friends and family. I don’t know how often I’ll be updating this blog, the goal is to update once weekly. My hope is to tell you about my adventures breaking into the adult world as I try to navigate things as they come.
