I know what you are thinking, this girl created an entire website about nearing 30 and still being single? What a loooooser. Not quite, I created this website because I am at that yucky stage in life where I am not young enough to attend college events and I'm not in a season of life to attend the divorced, single parent events. I am just twenty nine and terrified.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself and I am going to try and be as transparent as possible. I am actually still 28, but there is no avoiding the inevitable 29 is fast approaching. I work in finance for an international agriculture company. I am definitely low man on the totem pole. I reside in the most important part of California. The area where all the food is grown, the Central Valley. I graduated from Fresno State cum laude, when I was 22 with a Business Marketing degree. I did all the right things, right? Yet I soon realized that basically meant I could go into sales, which led to commission only jobs, which led to me working for my family business. After being unable to rebound from the economic downturn my family and I closed both of our businesses. And I found myself in a financial predicament (not that this was new). I was 26 years old, with a degree, a lot of real life business experience and no job. I packed up my belongings and moved back in with my parents. I dabbled in real estate before remembering that I hate sales. I am now 28, living at home with my parents and my three wiener dogs. I am completely incapable of dating (at least dating happily) and I am now on a mission to own a home, find love and be a real grown-up. Ya know, the kind I thought I would be by 24. This blog is here to document my struggle and hopefully make you smile if you are going through something similar.
