Quarter Life Crisis?



Hmm.. I can't seem to think of another way of describing what is going on in my life right now, Quarter life crisis  sounds about right.. Here I am with a Sociology degree thinking to myself "What was I thinking majoring in such a useless degree?" But I loved my major. It's so interesting knowing how society behaves, and why people do the things they do because of how others influence them...


 So now what??? I'm out of school, the only experience I have had is waitressing at a local BBQ restaurant for the past 7 years, and I'm stuck. Should I go back to get my M.A.? But what if I'm stuck with another "useless degree?" Should I take another low paying job? I do need money, I do have bills... Wow, I never thought life would bring me to such a doubtful state of mind. Me? The confident, self-sufficient, responsible, miss know-it-all? Now I don't seem to know who I am, what I want as a career, or what life has in store for me. =( better days will come, I must believe!!!!

A New year, A New Beginning, and A New Blog =)


Hi everyone, first off Happy New Year !!! My name is Laura Velez, I live in lovely sunny California. I am married to my best friend and soulmate Derek, which you will hear a lot about. We had two turtles Pete and Kate, and I say had because right before Christmas we had to donate them to a petting zoo place for we could not afford Kate's medical bills (she was very sick), but we wanted to keep them together so decided to give them both away. Not only that but we live in a tiny little room in my husbands grandparents house and we just did not have room for them. Hopefully some day we can get more, or a little puppy would be nice. 

I have been contemplating starting a personal blog for the past year or so, but because of fear and tons of other excuses I can give, I never did. But as the new year has started I believe it is the perfect start to this new Journey. I think Fear is a poor excuse anyways, but I am human and everyone will at one point or another experience it. Here I want to share a little bit about my life, thoughts etc…. If you would like to know a little more please check the About Me section. =) 

Pete, Kate
