Life Update: Turning 26, A New Relationship, And Changing Careers


Wow! I didn’t mean for an entire month to get away from me! Life has just been so busy and things have changed so much! I wanted to just update my readers on what is going on in this post. Tomorrow, I’ll return with regular lifestyle content.

First, I turned 26! I don’t feel 26. I still feel like an 18-year-old teenager. Do you ever truly feel grown up even when you adult really well? Maybe I will when I turn 30. I guess I’ll find out.

The next thing I wanted to share is that I am now in a relationship! I’m not changing my status from single to taken yet because it’s still a new relationship but it’s exciting! I made a profile on a dating website and this guy contacted me. It was not the kind of guy I’d go for but something told me to give him a chance. It’s been great! We connected so well and things seem really promising. We are taking things slow (mainly because he is in the Navy and has kids so he’s super busy) but it’s been so much fun. We really enjoy each others’ company. Just a side note: I probably won’t talk much about him on the blog because he’s a private person and has to be careful about what he reveals about himself because of the nature of his job. When I do mention him, I’ll refer to him as “A.”

I am making a career change! I’ve been working retail for the last eight years and I finally had enough. I quit my job and registered at a temp agency. I’m going to be doing general clerical work to build my office skills and hopefully find a permanent career as an administrative assistant. It feels so good to finally be out of retail and to be trying something new.

Finally, I wanted to share with you my plans for this blog. I really want to try and post at least once a week. It’s a rainy day today so I am going to work on an editorial calendar and some posts. I’m hoping to have a plan in place today! As you know, this blog is geared toward my demographic, the Christian millennial. I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts and ideas with you in the coming months!

Is there anything you would like to see me write about on this blog?

  1. Congrats on turning 26! So many life changes that can be super exciting and super stressful. Keep your blog on a schedule and you will do great. Consistency is the key!


  2. Something that might complement your endeavor to become an administrative assistant would be to do virtual assistant work as a side-hustle. Just a thought, since that’s what I’m doing on the side of my full-time job!

    I too am a Christian millennial (turning 26 this year!), and I gotta admit it’s sometimes hard. I am, however, interested in hearing more about the doggo in the pic on this post!


    1. I’ve been looking into that. I do some transcription work on the side so that has helped a bit. I’ll will make a post introducing my pets sometime soon when I get pictures of them all. I have quite a few. The pup in the photo is my Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Finn. She’s a rare breed in the US. She’s a lovely little dog! Thanks for stopping by.


  3. Aawww happy belated birthday! I’m about to turn 35 and I can tell you that I still don’t have it figured out. LOL! But I am enjoying the process. Glad you’re back! XO
