People assume I document my every move.
I may rant. I may share my good news, and sometimes I’ll share my bad news. I’ll list out my lessons learned, and I may complain. But I am vague as shit. I’m a strong believer that not everyone should know your next move, hence when I up and moved to NYC and told so little people. In fact, not even my parents or siblings know my next moves. For all you guys know… I could be in a different country. My goals, my projects, my finances, my daily struggles, my dating life, and career pretty much stay under raps for everyone minus my staples… and they only know half of what was listed. I do not blog to share every detail of my life, that’s what journals are for.
People assume my life is easy
It’s funny, because I just spoke about doing this, this past weekend, so you’re not the only guilty one. I’ve gotten a few emails in the past where readers (whom I love dearly) exclaim how easy I make it look to be “successful”. I think this is why I sometimes share my struggles. I’m a normal human being… for the most part. I think the only thing that sets me apart from most women my age is that I am beyond ambitious, and I try to think out of the box. It’s like how we all look at Beyoncé as some supernatural being… but she has the same 24 hours a day that we have. She’s experienced heart breaks, failures and family turmoil. She even rocks a weave. It’s what one chooses to display or how one chooses to view things that make their life seem so easy. Trust me, my life has been just as unfair as yours has … depending on how you look at it.
People assume that I studied English or Journalism
No, no… I’m a techie, a ‘geek’, and I like to build things, pretty creative things. I have a thing for writing yes, I’ve entertained the thought of writing yes, and I’ve toned down how technical my corporate job is, but I’m a STEM girl. It’s in my blood, thanks Daddy.
People assume that I live an extravagant life/span>
Ehh… depends on what you think is extravagant. I travel, I roam the streets of NYC, London, etc… But I’m pretty much a homebody. I like nice things, I’ve been told I’m “bourgeoisie”, but I’m pretty simple. You want to see fancy and high-taste? Meet my best friend…0
