My whole life I’ve known that I wanted to be a storyteller. That dream evolved from aspiring to write books to falling in love with film. Now, I’m 2+ years out of college with a Film degree (with a Political Science minor) and like most Millennials, I’m just trying to find my way in today’s off-kilter professional world.
This is my story of how much I’ve grown up since society declared me an adult. It’s also the story of how far I still have to go, as well as where I stand today as a 25 year old.POTENTIAL EMPLOYER DISCLAIMER: I’ve worked really hard to create compelling content and foster an interested audience on this blog. These are stories about dumb things that I did as a teenager. I’m a fairly responsible adult now, so don’t hold these indiscretions against me. This is my story of growing up and I’ve come a really long way. I will probably be sweating bullets should you ever find this blog, but it’s good work and I’m proud of it so I can’t make unlimited efforts to keep it hidden from you. Anecdotes won’t necessarily be told chronologically, but I will do my best to provide markers to help piece together the big picture. Names of individuals will be changed to respect their privacy.
