Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Mara Watkins. I’m 24 year old millennial woman living in La Vegas. I graduated from San Diego State University in 2016 with a degree in Criminal Justice. 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 aside and to make it a priority. The post-grad journey is a complicated one at times, but the purpose of this blog is document my journey through this time by discussing various things from health + fitness to goal setting and self-development. 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 bet life, while helping others do the same and these are The Musings of Mara.
