I’m new at this. And I’m not just talking about blogging. Here at The Newbie Nesters, I admit I don’t really know what I’m doing. Recent studies can tell you that humans are maturing at a slower rate than ever before, but I’m here to tell you that, no matter your age, adulting is hard. From moving away from home to buying your first house to finding a job to living on a budget to cooking to raising pets and children (sometimes at the same time), I know it doesn’t get easier from here. But I have also learned the value of doing this thing called life together. So join me on the journey, from college life onward, as I try to figure out what I’m doing.

Alicia is a recent MA writing studies graduate, who is now a marketing assistant in Chicago, Illinois. When she’s not writing, Alicia loves geeking out over the Harry Potter universe, crafting with her best friend, and getting in trouble in the kitchen with her favorite roommate.
