Welcome to this new journey I am embarking in. I am not new to blogging as I dabbled in it while in undergrad, which was focused on beauty and things have changed quite a bit in the blogging community since then. I am starting this blog because there are so many avenues in my life that have developed and ones that I am continuing to develop. This blog will hold me accountable for things that I want to achieve because I know people are watching and I am one of those people that hate to FAIL. Failing isn’t always bad because it teaches you what NOT to do and what to do better moving forward. However, in my case I usually fail because I fall off the wagon once things start to get difficult. I know, I know it’s a horrible trait to have.
With that being said, I guess I should introduce myself and my blog! I am Michelle and I am in my late 20’s. Let’s just say my 20’s have been quite a journey and any advice or tips I can give to anybody to avoid my mistakes, this blog will not be for naught. I was born and raised in South Florida and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up. There was a beach right down the street and hot all year round. It’s so beautiful down there. I went to undergraduate school at Florida State University (Go ‘noles!) and I received my Juris Doctorate at Nova Southeastern University. I moved to Washington, D.C. shortly after law school with a pipe dream because I couldn’t find work that I wanted to do in Florida. It was probably one of the best decisions of my life and I would not change a thing. But that’s a whole ‘nother post.
So how did I come up with the name SeaChelle? Well, for one thing it’s simple to remember and easy to put in the address bar. Second, the beach is something I love even though I don’t go often enough. There’s just something so relaxing about dipping your feet in the sand and watching the ocean waves. Third, it’s a double entendre because my blog is giving you some insight into my life. This blog is my journey of adulting and just figuring out life (does that actually ever happen?). I will be talking mostly about my career journey, my finances (hello law school and credit card debt!), fitness goals, my natural hair journey, and a little bit of fashion and beauty. Basically all the important aspects of my life. Hopefully this blog brings some help and insight to people who are following me, and I am definitely looking forward to where this adventure called life takes me!
