Hi. I’m Melissa.
And, I have absolutely no idea what to write on these pages. I never really know what people want to know about me, so I am just going to answer some questions.
Why Adulting Reluctantly? – This is really where I feel I am in life. My body tells me every day that I am in my mid-40s but my brain refuses to believe it. It still thinks I am in my mid-20s and it doesn’t want to do the things that adults in their 40s “should” do. And so, every day, I do things I need to do in my 40s but I do it reluctantly.
Why a blog? – I am not a great writer. I admit that. I write the way I talk and I am not polished there either. But, I keep a journal every day and a few years ago, I realized that I really wanted to share knowledge with the world. I started an online business but found out that I don’t have the drive to be an entrepreneur. So, blogging just makes sense. I might do some videos from time to time too because I like doing that, but not all the time.
What do I have to share? – This is where the blog gets interesting. I have so many different things that I am curious about and so many things that I want to talk about. I love to organize. I love working to save the environment. I knit. I sew. I love TV and college football. And, I want to learn how to play again. How to dance again. How to not be so afraid of the world again. So, I plan to explore all of these things. All the little things that make up me. Hopefully, this will allow everyone to get to know me and we can have wonderful conversations. Because above all, I love to talk!
Anything else? – I really want you to know that I am not in this blogging game to make money or sell anything. I tried that with my business and found that I am just not good at it. I feel too sleazy and I just can’t do it anymore. I have knowledge and I am willing to share it. You may see affiliate links in my posts but only if it is a product I use myself. I will never recommend anything I don’t use. Because that is sleazy and I hate being sleazy.
There you go. Me in a nutshell. Have a look around and I hope you like what you read. 🙂
