Hey there!

I'm super stoked that you've landed on my blog!

But there's something I need to share with you before you continue exploring the site...

I'm an anime-loving, cartoon-watching, piercing-adorned, tattoo-craving, Japanese-studying, wholesome life-aspiring, 25-year-old creative black girl blogger.

If your first thought toward any of my interests were, "ew" or "why...?", then this isn't the space for you.

Not because I'm gonna nerd-out about otaku content all day long or curate tattoo wishlists...

Because I have (and still am) living through pushback as I try to find my footing to unapologetically be myself, I decided to build a community that understands they're not alone in wanting something more authentic and enjoyable for their adulthood.

Within this space will be resources that aids in making positive changes and growth in life that you can both be confident in, and proud of.


Now my journey thus far isn't as expansive and inspiring as other content creators online.

But I'm making the most of what I have because everyone starts somewhere.

I don't have a car, a traditional job, my own room, let alone my own place.

But I do want better for myself and have faith that major growth will come so long as I keep working toward the growth I can make right now.

I'm blessed to stay home and work on me, but stretching with limitations does have its growing pains.

This blog is for any other creative who's ready to take their future into their own hands and develop their happiest selves, no matter what their circumstances.

So if you:

  • have unconventional interests, and ideas for your future and career path that no one around you understands.
  • know in your gut that you're just not meant to live the rest of your life in a corporate setting.
  • find yourself daydreaming about a future you want but are afraid to pursue.
  • have an itch to really invest in blogging as your newest creative outlet, but don't know where to start.

Then you're in the right place. 😉

The Face Behind Ditching Adulthood

I'm Cierra! A storyteller, personal (development) blogger, and writer. And I'm on a journey to develop my happiest self as an edgy, nerdy, and creative millennial who wants to live a more intentional life.

I aspire to create personable and engaged blogging experiences for fellow creative millennials who feel alone in their plight to do what makes them happiest in life!

It's hard to break through a mold that's been set for you, your entire life. Especially when everyone's watching and questioning the unconventional moves you wish you could make more openly.

So this blog is here to be a gentle push and resource to help motivate you to work toward what you truly want in life, and not get comfortable with what everyone says you're "supposed to" do.

And that goes for me too. 😉

Are you ready to join me on this self-discovery journey?

I have a bi-weekly newsletter called The Scoop where we have heart-to-hearts, and I share everything (including goodies!) with you first.

And if you're feeling pumped about starting a blog of your own after reading this, then I have a post to that'll get you all set up!
