Hello and welcome to my blog, The Musings of Mara. I launched this Vegas-based blog in 2016 to cultivate a space for twentysomethings and millennials (no matter where they live) to get self-development tips for living their best productive and purposeful lives. Whether it’s figuring out how to balance your demanding job with your fitness goals or your wellness with your busy school schedule, there’s something for you here!
My name is Mara Watkins and I’m twentysomething year old millennial woman living in Las Vegas. I graduated from San Diego State University in 2016 with a B.S. in Criminal Justice. I’m also currently in law school, which has been a dream of mine since I was 13 or 14 years old. Before I began pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree back in 2011, I used to love writing and blogging. It was my outlet for processing the world around me. However, once I began college the constant demands from professors, homework, sorority life, clubs and organizations on campus, working, maintaining a social life, and the other million things that come with being an undergrad, I lost sight of my passion for writing and blogging. Every New Year I would write “Write MORE. Blog MORE.” on my New Year’s Resolution Lists and EVERY year I would fail. Once I graduated college, I had more free time to blog and that’s where this blog began. I decided to stop going through the motions and putting my love for writing and helping aside and get to it!
The post-grad journey is a complicated one at times, but I have a passion for life that is unparalleled by most. If you stick around you might find something that you love, something that challenges your perceptions of the world, and maybe even something that speaks to your soul. Either way, I’m just trying to figure out life after the degree and live my best life, while helping others do the same and these are The Musings of Mara.
