I'm Harvey, a twenty-something, living in a town that I hate, with a job that I hate, flat out STRUGGLING with adulthood.
My husband received this amazing job offer at a University in the Northeast, and our honeymoon was moving across the country from Seattle. I quickly realized that this town would never be what I wanted it to be, and I have since been counting down the days until I get to move again. Until then, I have to find happiness, self-fulfillment, and a full-time job - all while maintaining a house and marriage. So far, this adult life has left me face down in the mud. And despite how care free and put together this picture makes me seem, I do not have my sh#t together.
I hope to share openly and honestly all of the questions that I have, my life fails, and hopefully (eventually) my triumphs as I try to conquer being an adult.
About 2 years ago, I moved across the country with my main boo, to a town that I can barely stand, with no friends, no connections, and no job.
As someone who struggles with severe anxiety and depression, it took me about a full year to adjust to all of the newness in my life. I have since found a stable job (that I hate, but pays well) and we have found a house that we love.
However, I do not have a community, support system, or even friends in this town. All I have is my hubby and my two loves, Griz and Manji.
I love my little family, and I'm definitely not a people person, but everyone needs community and support. I have truly struggled in the past two years to find like-minded individuals in this town, or people that challenge me in a good way.
This is the main reason why I've started this blog. I know that there are millennials struggling to conform to the cookie-cutter 'adult' and I can't possibly be the only one handling anxiety, depression and just plain loneliness.
I hope to connect with those individuals through this blog and maybe find a community of my own through my blog.
Thank you for reading! I'd love to hear any feedback, comments, advice, and questions that you have!
