Unexpectedly Uprooted- Post grad life: month 4

It seems that just when you think you are settled comfortably into life and have everything under control, that you get struck with an unexpected complication; something that unsettles you, makes you halt and question what you are doing, if you can go on, and even who you are.

This post may seem vague, but we have all been in this state; where a certain shred of news suddenly hits you and changes the course of your life so drastically that it makes it hard to hold on... and there is nothing you can do about it.

You did not get that dream job that you believed you had in the bag, a family member that you have always looked up to will soon leave this world, set-in-stone promises were broken... This was not the way things were meant to be.

Post-grad, real life, impromptu travel: Requesting time off

If you have kept up with my blog or know me at all, you would realize that I quite like to go on adventures. One of the best things that I got out of my college experience was the opportunity to study abroad (twice!), which allowed me to challenge myself, find my independence and access who I truly am! I also came out of studying abroad with new friends, one of which is crazy enough to go on a whirlwind adventure with me to Paris and London! See the background of our insanity here.

Vanessa and I went to the same college, but we did not meet until we both studied abroad in London together during the spring of our sophomore year.
