So, let’s talk about me. I originally had to start a blog for class and decide to actually publish and go through with this. This post is just going to be a small background on myself so we can all be acquainted. Firstly I am not, never was, and never will be an English major. Now that that’s out of the way please don’t judge on my grammatical issues. Well my name is Julie, I’m 24 and I’m a lab processing technician at THE Ohio State University Hospital. Also I work at a bar on my off days, as well as attending classes to pursue a masters degree- in what? Who knows. I went to Ohio Northern University, graduated in 2014, with a degree in biology and one in sociology. Since then my life has been filled with chaos, moving, financial instability, and very very very slow progress.
I’m generally not a patient person so the fact that my life is still organized chaos is not what I had in mind by age 24. I originally thought I would have my masters by now, living in a decent apartment (which I do), and making sufficient salary (which I don’t) to help with that nice private education I have-great idea 2010 Julie. I was told like many of us that if I went to college I could do whatever I wanted…. Well that was 100% false. What I can do is struggle on a regular basis to make a small amount of money to pay off student debt, drive a less-than desirable car, and a decent place to live. Oh and did I mention I like to have a decent social life so I don’t feel like a antisocial hermit on the weekend?I want want so many things in life still. Firstly and most importantly to finish my education, and in the medical field that means having a masters degree. Then I want the cliche things like a family, a man who loves me, a nice house, etc etc. You know, American Dream kind of shit. But I also want to know more and try to learn something meaningful and lasting. Not the education classroom type of learning but the kind about yourself and the people you see on a daily basis. So that’s what this blog will be about: managing all the bullshit that we have to do (work bad jobs, not get enough sleep, grind away 14-hour work days) just so we can try and achieve the long term goals. Main topics will be how I manage my schedule and the crazy days I have to go through. Also some days I like to just discuss random thoughts and things I observe in my life. Hope you enjoy!!
