Being an adult isn't easy. Being an adult just out of college, settling into the "real world" and trying to understand how to actually adult is absolutely terrifying. I should know... I've been out of college for almost 4 years and I'm still trying to wrap my head around this whole being a contributing member of society-thing.
So how do we become functioning members of society? How do we balance our jobs, our social lives, and our "me" time? It's actually quite simple. We band together, try to stay organized, and fake it till we make it.
Being a good member of society isn't just about getting up in the morning, sitting in traffic, working 9 to 5, and then going home in the evening. It's about staying ahead of the game, making healthy choices, learning when to speak up, and making an effort to make a difference in the world. We've got it covered from various organization tips to learning how to take time off from work even when it feels like there's no good moment.
My goal is to really help set you up for success. I'm going through this transition into adulthood just like you... why not do it together?
So who am I?
My name's Katerina Rose and I'm a Programmer-turned-UX Designer living in the wonderful city of Boston, MA. I graduated from college with a BFA in 2013 and I've been a working girl ever since. My experiences include freelance design, working at a small startup, and immersing myself in the corporate world at a company boasting over 4,000 employees.
For those who know me personally, I'm obsessed with planners, exploring the city around me, and organizing all of my crazy projects into manageable little chunks.
I decided to start Simply Katerina Rose to share my journey, and the journeys of my friends who may be sharing their own experiences, with you and to help you get through this crazy thing called adulthood with me.
