Nobody Likes You When You're 23

I have been neglecting my blog for the past few weeks. I haven't had a knack for writing lately. I never really have had one, but I'm trying. There are so many days when I wish I could use this blog as my personal venting/counseling sessions but I'm trying not to make every detail of my life public information.. which we all know is hard these days with Twitter, Facebook, etc;

As many of you know, this week is my last week in Washington DC. I have accepted a job in Dayton, OHIO and I am very excited for this new opportunity and the start of a new chapter in my life. I was waiting until now to write a post about my new job and move back to the Buckeye State because there were some complications with my job offer. A very distant relative works at my new company (which I was unaware of) and the company was investigating a possible conflict of interest. At one point, my job offer was actually rescinded... this catapulted me into a 24 hour period of panic:

Thankfully, my new company worked hard to fix the situation and finally offered me the job. I am thankful that they were willing to work with me to come to a solution.

Tomorrow is my 24th birthday and my last night in Washington DC. And exactly one year ago, my 23rd birthday was my first day in Washington DC. It's crazy how everything came full circle. What an amazing ride 23 was.

I thought that my college years were the time for learning about yourself and what you want out of life, but boy was I wrong. 23 was the year for me. I had my highest highs and my lowest lows, but I don't regret a single second. My head has never been so clear. I know exactly what I want, and I am surrounded by the most amazing people to help get me there.

Blink 182 said it best, "Nobody likes you when you're 23." 


  1. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. DC is going to miss you TONS...sniffle, sniffle. But as Dr. Seuss said "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened" :)
    Best of luck with your new adventures! And THANK GOD for this blog so I can keep tabs on you! xoxo

  2. You're too good to me :) I will miss you too! And yes, I can stalk you on your blog so keep em comin'!

  3. Jes! I couldn't quit laughing when I saw the Blink 182 lyric haha. I was the last one to turn 23 (which was just one month ago exactly) so I'd always say "No one likes you when you're 23" to my friends instead of "Happy Birthday" lol. Miss you! Hope OH is treating you wellll


Your comments make my day :) Thanks for stopping by!
