Why I Decide To Start Blogging

So, I have a few people ask me ‘Why I Decided To Start Blogging’.  Over the years I have been through some amount of, shall we call it, ‘unfortunate circumstances’.

By rights, I shouldn’t be here. But I am! Turning the negatives experiences and life…

17 Adulting Problems No One Ever Prepared You For

While scrolling through my social media I came across this quote about Adulting Problems…. It got me thinking, What Is The One Adulting Problem No One Ever Prepared Me For?

For many others, it’s often about money, and learning how to get debt free, understanding mortgages or grappling with their careers. Also how to look for a potential future partner.
