I will begin my first ever blog post by introducing myself. I am Belle2. I am a twenty-something gal from Atlanta that enjoys southern cooking, having a nice glass of wine (or six), socializing with friends, and being outdoors…all while trying to figure out what my next and hopefully fulfilling career move will be.
My work life is one that MOST people would love to have. Please notice how I emphasize “most.” I work from home a couple of days a week for a major beverage company in the supply chain industry. I am still in my first job out of college because like Belle1, I wouldn’t settle on graduating without some sort of post-collegiate plan. Whereas in this economy I should be thanking my stars that I actually HAVE a job, I can’t help but feel a little discontent. I think it is just typical of people my age or at least I’m telling myself that. J
Belle1 and I started this blog as part of our year of change. I just had a birthday in December and decided that 2009 was going to be the year of ME. It is time for me to take on the typical role of a millennial and be a little selfish this year. My New Year’s resolution is to discover new things in both my city of residence and in my life. (AKA trying to get my life together. JK. Sorta.) I am being a bit vague when I say city of residence because along with figuring out my life, I really want to move to NYC. Most probably think I am crazy for wanting to move to that concrete island in the North, but I want to move there basically so I can say I have experienced it. Other than studying abroad in college, I have never really lived anywhere outside of the south. I think it would teach me a few things, like how to drink unsweet tea. I am going to spend this next year trying to figure it all out and invite comments and suggestions (hopefully constructive).
Can I also mention that I never in a million years thought that I would start a blog?! I discovered blogging while I was bored at work and have been hooked ever since.
