about me

I'm Maddie, a 22 year old Criminology graduate. After leaving university last year, I felt this huge sense of confusion, fear and worry now that I'd left the comforting structure and routine of education.

A year after graduating, I'm still finding my way through life, navigating work, money, friendships, impostor syndrome and more.

So, let this blog help you to feel less alone and we can find our way through adult life together.

stories from other graduates

A study found that 49% of graduates felt low after finishing university, so you really aren't alone if you're feeling down.

“Your 20s are your 'selfish' years. It's a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you. Tinker with stuff, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground.” - Kyoko Escamilla.
