Hello! My name is Kelsey Peña and I’m a recent grad from the University of Florida where I double majored in public relations and political science.
Back in the summer of 2016 I started this blog as a way to remember my time studying abroad in Barcelona. Needless to say I fell in love with the country and spent my last two years of college dreaming of ways to return.
Which brings us to the present: I’m headed back to Spain to embark on my year-long journey as an Auxiliar de Conversación or Language and Culture Assistant. Am I terrified? Yup. Will I be living the Ramen lifestyle? Probably. Am I using this year as a way to postpone thinking about the inevitable realities of the rest of my life post-college? Most definitely.
So join me as I try to figure out exactly what it means to be a “real adult.” Lord knows I have no idea, but I willing to give it a shot.
