Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Alyssa or Aly and I am a twenty something born and raised in the small Midwestern city of Ann Arbor, MI. Made my dreams come true and moved to without a job and with little notice to Raleigh, NC where I knew no one in early January of 2018.

I am here to document my journey in hopes of benefiting at least one person. I think self-reflection and seeing how far one has come can be extremely therapeutic. I hope you’ll follow along with me!
