Rachel Tries Life

I am Rachel. I am an adult; I am not a grown up.

ย If you are anything like me, you will:

  1. Still not know what you want to be when you grow up
  2. Believe that strawberry milkshake totally counts as one of your five a day
  3. Travel as often as possible to avoid having to think about serious adult stuff like politics and pensions

Rachel Tries Life is a safe haven for my fellow pretend grown ups out there. I’m attempting this thing called “adulthood” by trial and error and sharing my findings along the way. You’re warmly invited to have a poke around and see if there is something that tickles your interest.

If you’re new around these parts and don’t know quite where to start then here’s some of my personal favourite posts to get you started:

  1. I can relate to the ‘milestones’ that you mention here as a recent graduate and having got my first ‘grown up’ job this year too ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Looking forward to following your adventures!
