The Coffee Shop Diaries - Growing up

Monday, April 8, 2019




I remember being a little girl sleeping in between both my parents and telling them "I'm going to sleep with you forever" my parents would laugh and I'm sure they would think "we wish" but this little girl grew up and spread her wings. Let me say, till this day you will find me sleeping with them like a little girl. 100x bigger than my mom, but it's all good, she likes it :P

As I grew up, I thought I had the world in the palm of my hands. My imagination ran for miles, there was nothing I felt I couldn't do. I'd daydream about my future, future job, future house, future husband, travel goals, and so much more. No one told me it would be so hard.


I graduated in December and landed my first big girl full time job. The pay not so great, but I'm gaining experience. I work 5 straight days out of the week as a writing & a reading permanent sub since I have still been working on my certification exams and let me tell you...  I am exhausted every day! Working full time for someone else is a daily reminder that I don't want to work for someone else all my life. Right now, I am fresh out of college in need of experience, building myself up, and paying off school and preparing myself for my adult life. I am not where I want to be, but this is just the start. I am positive that the future is bright, but in order to make my dreams come true, I have to work towards them each and every day.
As the days get harder, I want to be that little girl again. I want to have both my parents next to me, holding me and telling me, "every little thing is gonna be alright."


I've been reading blogs here and there about adult-ing, and I came across one by "The Brief" 20 adulting tips and I'm all about it! There is so much I need to learn! What about you? Are you adulting right now? Have any tips for us? Share by commenting down below. :)

I recommend trying out the Horchata Latte! It's delicious! 
The ambiance is nice and the staff members are so welcoming :) 



I'll never, ever be full. I'll always be hungry. Obviously, I'm not talking about food. Growing up, I had nothing for such a long time. Someone told me a long time ago, and I've never forgotten it, 'Once you've ever been hungry, really, really hungry, then you'll never, ever be full.'
