I’m Dara, a twenty-something Boston girl born and bred.
I realized, after talking with my housemates and friends from home, that we are all in the same, new phase of our lives: in our last few months as a college student who, for the first time, will not be going back to school in September. I know this can be a confusing, stressful and hectic time where all you want to do is either nap or binge watch Netflix to not think about the future (trust me, I do both all the time), but that’s why I am here. To let you know that whatever you are going through as we make our way from fake life to the real world, there is someone there who is going through the same thing. You are going through a change, just like me, too. I hope you follow me as I document my triumphs of graduating college, (hopefully) getting a job, (hopefully) moving out and (hopefully) surviving on my own.
But that’s not what this is all about. This is a place where you’ll hear about my day-to-day experiences of my life in my twenties – when times are good and when times are bad, and everything else in between. And more importantly, moments when I realize, “Hey, my twenties are a really exciting time in my life.”
I guarantee there will be times of tears, laughs, mental breakdowns and smiles but it will be all worth it in the end.
I’m in my twenties, figuring out my life. Just like you, too.
