So if you don’t already know from the never-ending posts and Instagram stories with my dog, I adopted my pup, Maizy, on September 23rd, 2018 and I couldn’t be more in love with her. I’m going to be honest, I was not prepared when I actually adopted her. I knew I wanted a dog eventually, maybe even a service dog, but I didn’t think I was going to get one anytime soon. I never grew up with any pets (aside from fish, turtles, hermit crabs, and a guinea pig), so I had no idea what to expect. Today’s post is going to be about my journey raising a dog as a single parent, and the real truth about getting a dog in your early twenties, so that hopefully you can decide if it’s the right time for you to add a new member to your family.
If you scroll through my Instagram feed, you’ll notice that I definitely have favorite spots I like to photograph in San Francisco. Here’s a guide for my top 5 locations, what the location is perfect for, and when you can snap your next winning Instagram post.
Let’s be real now--dating is hard. It doesn’t matter who you are or what previous experiences you have had. Everyone encounters their own struggles when it comes to finding someone they want to share their lives with, either for the rest of their lives or just for the time being. You can’t change what other people do, so make sure you’re taking the time to think clearly, prioritize yourself, and trust your gut. Have faith in your journey and in yourself that whatever comes your way, you will be ok.
