Sunday Scaries – Starting Out Single

My biggest fear growing up was to graduate a single woman. Throughout my college career, I wanted to have a girlfriend and start dating. I wanted to start my post-college life chapter with someone else by my side. Now it is an excitement.

You may be wondering why I am sharing a post about starting out in the career world single. I recently broke up with my ex girlfriend. Although I will not share the details of it, it is for the better for the both of us. At this point in my life, I am spending a lot of my free time looking and applying for jobs and networking. While it is crazy, it is going to be totally worth it when I achieve my goal of acquiring my first job and starting out in the workforce. Something that I will do as a strong and independent single woman.

My fears of starting out as a single woman have turned into excitement. I will now get to start out in this new and exciting time in my life – my twenties – not worrying about anyone else, living without boundaries of having to come home to someone else, and having the ability to mingle and travel as I please/when I am able to. My twenties will be filled with a time to be selfish and solely focus on ME and only ME. I am more than excited to get to do a ton of things with friends and family. I am also really excited to get a job where I can dig into my passions of data science and learn and grow within the workforce as a woman in STEM. I am so excited to get my own apartment and shop for it on my own without anyone else’s opinion lurking in the background – I have a major passion for decorating and interior design, and I cannot wait to use it. I am excited to get to grow my platform on here on The Pink Chickadee and strive to reach each of you in ways that I can connect and best serve youThere are so many things that I cannot wait to do! I am excited to host friends and family over in my apartment with long weekends and gatherings; I have always wanted to host dinner parties and brunches! Lastly, I am more than excited to start the next chapter of my life, even during the coronavirus pandemic.

I used to be terrified of being a single woman in a couple’s world starting out. However, I am oh so excited to start this next adventurous chapter in my life, perfectly me and happily single.

XOXO – Katie <3
