For those of you who only recently hopped on the Unemployed Kat bandwagon, I’ve been writing this little blog since I graduated from college (a zillion years ago).
It was June 2010 and I was living out the last two months of parent-subsidized rent in my South Side apartment when it dawned on me that starting a blog might serve as a valuable portfolio / digital resume. At the time, the job search felt fruitless, my love life was in tatters, and all the fuzziness surrounding my future made me stressed out and anxious.
Writing always had a way of helping things make sense, so that’s what I did.
It’s funny. Some days, it feels like I’ve hardly learned anything over the last decade, but then I’ll chat with someone a couple years younger who’s experiencing the seesaw of emotions I felt at 22, and realize just how much I’ve figured out.
If you’ve been following the blog since the beginning, there won’t be anything wildly new and exciting in the book, but I’ve done my best to compile the posts that best embody the chaotic, crazy experience of being a millennial woman. From workplace antics, to falling in love, to suffering through family activities, to navigating post-college friendships, there’s a little bit of everything here…
