About the Addict

img_20701.jpgIn a nutshell, I am a 27 year old weirdo with a former Starbucks addiction trying to navigate life as a “grown up”. I now appreciate and love non-caffeinated tea!

This blog is about me navigating the real world and sharing my adventures as a freelance writer. Here, you can read all about my misadventures such as, creeping on attractive men at Starbucks, making new friends, and enjoying the great outdoors. So buckle up, you’re in for a few laughs, cringes, and all the above. Cheers! Also, feel free to say hi!

      1. You make me feel young and alternately make me wish I was young again. Do over? I wouldn’t change much, just approach my live with more bravado. Not so much looking over my shoulder and wondering if I offended anyone.

      2. That’s so sweet! I’m still trying to be brave and not look over my shoulder too. I typically don’t share my blog with those who know me for fear of being “looked down on or judged” but ultimately, it’s like Dr. Seuss said: “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

      3. Dr. Seuss was a wise man. Sometimes I envy women of your age and the power (and freedom) you have compared to my era. I think it was Voltaire (sp) who said “With great power comes great responsibility.” I think Stan Lee and Superman made similar statements. So I guess power is a gift and a curse. I believe you are one who will not be cursed. You have a mighty fine head on your shoulders. I wish you a lot of success with your blog. It is very entertaining.

      4. Thank you for the kind words! 🙂 I’m hoping I put my power/freedom to good use. With so many options and avenues, it can kind of get confusing especially if you go against the grain.

  1. Thank you for finding my blog, because it means I found you in return! What you’re doing is exactly what I want to be doing…I’m just not sure how I’m going to do it yet. But in the meantime, I can totally relate to the whole ‘stumbling through adulthood’ thing. Looking forward to reading more of your writing! x

  2. Love it. I feel the same way..minus the corporate gig. I’m still trying to wiggle my way out the dirt, while building a door to my dreams becoming reality. However, I’m sipping on Starbucks as I read this, with a sinister smile. Thanks for the glimpse into your world..Starbucks Clinks to you 🙂
