Ahhhhh, surprise! I’m in ̶G̶E̶R̶M̶A̶N̶Y̶! (Well when I pre-wrote this blog post I was supposed to be in Germany on my birthday, but that didn’t workout hahahahaha so I am in Philadelphia instead! However, we are still going to make it to Germany tonight! We have the whole day to explore Philly, then our flight to Europe is tonight at 6:30pm)… now back to the regularly scheduled blog post😂… I got too caught up in graduating I forgot to tell y’all I was going out of town on my birthday. As it got closer to the time for me to leave, I thought it would just be fun to just surprise y’all with where I was going! So I am here in Frankfurt, Germany (lol no still in Philly😂) with my friend, Miranda & then in a couple days I am going to meet my mom, sister & neighbor in Amsterdam!
If you are new to my blog hi & welcome, I am so glad you are here! I get it all the time, yes, I know I’m a “BABY”. Hehe so many people think I don’t seem 22…. However, I feel like everyone must know I’m “younger” since I just graduated college two weeks ago, but still I know I still don’t necessarily look 22.
I don’t even know where to begin, it was been such an eventful year! Last year on my birthday I was in Peru. I got to turn 21 in a country where the drinking age was 18… so needless to say my birthday was not a ranger by any means haha. I started out my 21st birthday by waking up at the crack of dawn to drive two hours to a very very VERY poor city. The city was right outside of Cusco, Peru & we were going to volunteer at a school. It was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. If you don’t know, I have been a nanny all through college! So getting to go to a school & play with kids on my birthday was the best experience ever.
While I am not in Germany to volunteer, it is still a very special time. This is my last trip before I start in the REAL WORLD. It still feels so sureal, I can’t believe I start work in nine short days.
Turning 21 I sort of knew what the future held for the year ahead of me. This year since I graduated college I feel like my future isn’t as stable. I am excited to start my new job & yes it is stable hahaha. But it’s not like having class Tuesday & Thursday 9-11. It’s any day & anytime of the week 50+ hours a week. I also get my schedule weekly so the future is literally unknown until a couple days ahead. Since I’m usually such a planner I think it will be good for me to let go & let God.
I will be tested this year in my new job & it will be good for me. It will get me out of my comfort zone & make me experience more. I am really proud of myself for making it this far. I am about to start the rest of my life & while it FREAKS ME OUT it also reminds me who is actually in control. Everything has always worked out in my life for a reason & this year will be no exception. I am where I need to be at this time & I am content with it.
Thank you all for being on this crazy journey with me. I wouldn’t be writing this random life update if it weren’t for y’all. It’s still crazy to me that you are here but I hope you love it here, because I love having you! Sharing my life with you is one of the best birthday presents I could have! Y’all mean the world to me!
