I’m Kelly, a freelance writer from Albany, New York. Since graduating from college in 2008, I have worked for a local politician, taught English in Costa Rica, and accidentally became a federal employee, a career move that caused me to flee back to the safe confines of academia. I recently graduated with my M.A. in Organizational Communication.
I have a background in journalism and have written for The Legislative Gazette and the Times Union.
I’ve also just gathered the courage to put my personal writing out into the world and recently read one of my essays as part of BookMarks: The Memoir Project Reading Series, a terrifying and exhilarating experience.
Aside from writing, I’m obsessed with books, baking and Pilates, and spend about 80% of my free time daydreaming about travelling the world.
About the Blog
I am in what I like to call my “late-mid-twenties” and so far this decade of my life has had sooo many ups, and sooo many downs. Who knew the twenties would be so dicey? I recently lamented to a friend in her forties, “But your twenties are supposed to be so fun!”
Amused, she said, “Who told you that?”
That pretty much sums it up.
I created this blog to share all the disappointment and disillusionment, hope and excitement, and total FML moments of the terrible twenties. I hope you can relate.
