... but first, I'll introduce myself. My name is Susan, though I took the name Q from a nickname that my former employers gave me. There were too many Susans, Susies, Suzannes, Sues. So they just called me Q.
I'm 25. I'm engaged. I'm saving for a house. I'm working at my first post-college job. My parents are working towards retirement. My brother lives an hour away and has a family. I live with my fiancé, P, in an apartment in the historic district of the city where we both grew up. P&Q, forever and ever.
It is, quite possibly, the most precarious and exciting/terrifying times of my life, and I fucking love it.
I started this blog because I know there are a million of me out there, but there's always something different about them -- they have kids, or they already have a house, or they're not worried about money, or they are single and ready to miiiiiiiiiiiingle!, or they just don't have a certain something that makes me want to read about their lives.
So, this is the end result: I want to develop this into something similar to my mindset... a 20-something blog of sorts, a mix of wedding planning/relationship maintenance/marriage talk, personal finance, house hunting/keeping, career maneuvering, family drama, retail therapy, etc. I'm not so much into politics or current events, but I'll throw in some commentary every once in a while, if something piques my interest.
Enjoy... now I need a cigarette.
