Once upon a time, there was a young college graduate who had big dreams…
And then she woke up.
And remembered she was still living with her parents.
And working as a secretary.
Hi, I’m Kait. And this is my CompliKAITed Life…
You’re probably asking yourself how a nice and responsible girl like me wound up living at home with her parents. Or maybe you’re not. The economy is kind of in the shitter after all, and lots of the recently graduated lads and ladies are flocking back to their childhood homes. However, to amuse you, I’ll give you the 411 on how I crash-landed into my current status.
I’m 24 and I graduated in 2010 with degrees in English and Spanish. After a short stint interning as a writer for a prominent greeting card company, I decided to drop everything and go to Costa Rica. While living the tropical pura vida, I worked as a travel writer and a social media guru, met some awesome people, and drank a lot of beer.
After a year abroad, I shimmied my homesick butt back to the good old US of A, setting my foot permanently on American soil on February 1st of this year. I’ve been in the States about 3 months now, getting my bearings, doing secretary stuff, and trying to find an affordable living situation.
Thanks to the awesomeness that is Kate-book.com, I’ll be maintaining a biweekly column here. I’m hoping to fill it to the brim with anecdotes about my wonderfully strange Foot Doctor Dad and Quality Assurance Manager Mom, as well as secretarial shenanigans, and gourmet recipes. Okay, maybe not the gourmet recipes. I’m not that talented.
But if you find yourself lying awake at night, wondering what life is like for receptionists in Northwest Indiana, then this it totally the column for you.
My CompliKAITed Life is a column by Kaitlin Marie running on Kate-book.com every other Wednesday at noon. You can read all about Kaitlin’s Zombie Apocalypse plans on her blog Zombies4breakfast.com. Oh, and follow her on Twitter here or on Pinterest here. She pins obsessively.
