My name is Adlai. I’m a 30 year old woman living in Manhattan.
I’m not a mother. I’m not a wife. I’m not a 20-something fashionista. I’ve had trouble finding blogs that are relevant to my situation. I’m learning how to be a better homemaker while balancing school and a full time job. I’m a student, finishing up my Bachelor’s degree at Columbia University. I study Human Rights (law). I’ve paid my own way through school and now my finances are in terrible shape. I’m learning how to cook from scratch and starting new routines to take care of my home. I’m shopping for clothing that makes me look like a stylish adult while maintaining the budget of a student. I’m paying down a mountain of debt. I’m trying to fit religion and new traditions into my life, while still remaining logical and objective. I have a 9 year old dog who often stinks and obsessively licks people. If you can related to any of these things, then welcome to my blog. Please reach out and let me know you’re out there!
