The Origin Story

Post-grad is an odd time of life- isn’t it?

There are books, TV shows, & movies depicting this stage of life as aimless, messy, and often a bit drunken.

While these depictions are often true, there is so much more going on than fun work parties and Tinder dates.

-We’re decoding our health insurance.

-We’re remembering what we like to do in our free time.

-We’re trying to make friends when we’re not surrounded by our peers 24/7.

I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of graduating college. In this time, I have learned so much about how to navigate these facets that come along with adulthood. Granted, I still have lots to learn. But, I am going to share with you the knowledge I’ve acquired- what I wish I had known sooner.

Graduation day came and went in a blur. When I was moving to my new city, I found that there were minimal resources designed to help me navigate “adult” life. It seemed any blog post or article I stumbled upon was either:

A) sponsored content from a business that was trying to rope in millennials or

B) a one-time post that was helpful, but inconsistent.

 

In a conversation with my friends, I was explaining that something was missing. There was a knowledge disparity. I had a longing for someone to open my eyes to some of these things before I actually had to walk through them on my own. “Sarah, you should start a blog!” I rolled my eyes. At the time, it seemed to me that everyone attempts to start a blog at some point in their lives.

 

But I, clearly, came around.  I believe in this. I’m going to share what I’ve learned (& am still learning) as a Freshly Minted Person.

 

To be minted is to be freshly produced or made. We are products of our environment, of our families, and our educations. Now, recently thrusted into a life where we can buy all our groceries, set up a retirement plan, and go to the eye doctor- all before noon.
