What up, y’all! For years, I’ve been dreaming up the courage to create this blog. I’m thrilled to be here, finally, and to open up my brain to you. Throughout this journey, I’ll be sharing some stories from my past, some of my thoughts on current events, anecdotal nannying adventures, mental health craziness; and, what it’s like to be a single 24 year old woman trying not to flail around Chicago. Sounds riveting, right? I know, you’re pumped.
First, let’s address the elephants in the room. For those of you who don’t know me well, know these facts: I am a nanny to three awesome kids in Chicago. I’ve struggled with depression for six years, and was in an abusive relationship for a couple of them. I am the youngest sister to twins 11 years older than me. I have two exceptional parents, and an amazing niece and nephew who ushered black culture into our painfully white family. Perhaps most relevant of all, I am openly obsessed with Coldplay. You read that right. Learn why in my FIRST EVER POST! The excitement is real.
