It’s been a while since I’ve written. So much has happened since I shared my last millennial anecdotes. I’ve been settling into: a new city, a new apartment, a new job, and being newly single [an unexpected, dismal—yet inevitable—turn of events].
Through this crazy transition, I’ve thought a lot about what I want to do to this blog, and on a plane ride to Kansas City for a work trip, it came to me: I want TheEchoBoomer.com to be a useful tool for my peers. Yeah, the stats I share are interesting and all, but at the end of the day, I know you guys aren’t reading my blog to find out what percentage of your cohorts are drinking wine vs. beer.
I sit here at 28 years old fully understanding just how hard it is to navigate through adulthood. It’s rough, man. And I know I’m not alone here. Oftentimes, it feels like every one around you has figured out how to feed themselves without Seamless, how to save shit tons of money to spend on travel, how to make shit tons of money, how to make their apartment look like it came out of a design magazine, and how to successfully be in a relationship with another person, among other things.
And while some of us have some of those areas on lock, no one has it all figured out. I certainly don’t. We’re all in this rat race together, so my goal is to try new stuff, research all of the things and interview experts to help you take charge of: your finances, dating, work work work, friendships … and more.
I hope you all find the new format entertaining, informative, and most of all – useful.
I look forward to jumping into this journey with all of you!
