If you’re a 20-something trying to figure out this life and feel like you’re tripping over everything in your path, let me warmly welcome you. Maybe you’re someone who knows a 20-something or works with 20-somethings and you find yourself forgetting what it’s like to be there in those ten years of excitement, opportunity, and straight up confusion.
My name is Kristyn and I’m your average young professional contemplating the meaning of life on the daily. I decided that once I was done torturing myself through grad school, I was going to document all of my thoughts on why being a 20-something might be the most awkward stage of life. Odd thought, but it was spurred on by a development theory I learned about in grad school, which basically confirmed this hypothesis. Over the course of the past couple years, I’ve run the idea by a few trusted people who said they would read my blog if I wrote one, so here I am.
My life took an interesting turn from thrilling, ever-changing, fast-paced single life in Colorado to now adventurous, brand-new, more intentionally paced married life in Scotland. I’m awkwardly making my way through the transitions and the change, all while learning what it means to love deeper – in marriage, with strangers, and with all my people thousands of miles a way. While my husband, Seth, plays student and hangs out in the library, I sometimes work a little as a Careers Adviser at a foreign university and I more often explore the more adorable little town of St Andrews.
Aside from that, though, I love to find myself some great coffee to sip on, a new trail to hike, or a creative way to entertain my people (who I’m sure I will talk about a lot here). Also critical to note is that I’m a Jesus follower – this is profoundly important because if I feel lost now, I don’t even want to know where I’d be if I wasn’t following the one true God.
Enjoy a read or enjoy the ride – whichever you prefer. Thanks for being here!
