Life Is That Way
The first blog post of any blogger should be about who they are and what they want to accomplish. So here it is!!!
I’m Valerie. I am currently 32 years old. I have had this idea about this blog for two years now and have tried to start it up, but I never could get motivation. I have debt like a lot of people. Honestly, $12,000 in credit cards and $28,000 in student loans. My car is paid off, it’s not new, but it gets me from a to b to c. I have an associate degree in nursing for my student loans.
I have read blog posts before by other bloggers. I want to help others in the way that I want to be helped. We have been told to go to school, get a degree, get a house, start a family etc. etc. etc. Yeah, life is that way, but I am not that person. I had my child at the age of 22. I am currently in the process of adopting my niece. My fiance is 32, as well, and is a stay at home dad. Due to my fiance staying at home, we need to be frugal with our money. We cannot just buy the newest game console out there. We cannot just buy random toys all the time. We have to make sacrifices and honestly, I think we are doing well. Of course, my debt could be gone, but that is part of the journey to self-discovery.
Life is that way as people say, I just took my own route to find my own way.
