I am a 20-something Catholic. I originally started this blog to talk about my faith, but quickly learned I wanted to write about much more than just theology. This blog is a chronicle of my life as I enter my career, my passions, and my marriage. Kind of a lot.
I’m finishing up film school, currently working in the promotions department of PBS and I do freelance promotional editing work for companies all over. I’m in production right now for my thesis film, which is a documentary on women’s journeys (including myself) off the pill into fertility charting.
Speaking of which, I’ve spent the last 2 years dedicating my free time to studying the vast topic of fertility. It has become a passion of mine and I absolutely LOVE talking about it, so feel free to hit me up with questions, comments, or just to chat! Here are the main things I blog about on 20somethingcatholic.com:
Faith: I wasn’t always Catholic. I believe the appropriate term is “revert”. Obviously, my faith is part of who I am. I wouldn’t be here today living the life I lead without it. I blog a lot about the struggles and joys of leading a Catholic life. At the end of the day – Catholicism is home for me. It is what gives life to me and makes me a better, more whole, more fulfilled person. And I love that.
Fertility: After a long time of bad side effects on hormones, I discovered fertility charting. This opened a whole world for me. As I learned more and more about biology and reproductive health, I have found the topic of fertility very close to my heart. And if you don’t know this about me – I post about fertility A LOT. I now know more about the female cycle, breastfeeding, and pregnancy than I ever expected to know. It’s kind of a shame I didn’t go to med school at this point… Anyways, I blog about charting fertility, reproductive health issues, and embracing a natural alternative to hormonal contraception. I believe it is first and foremost a health issue, and not a religious one.
Holistic Health and Healing: I just started a new series here about holistic health. I write about healing our health naturally through diet, vitamins, and natural alternatives. (Cuz I’m crunchy like that.)
Working in TV/Film: I do promotional editing for PBS and I also have my own freelance company. I especially love when I get projects about things I’m passionate about. I’ve done editing for a fertility charting platform and a cloth diapering company, which were products I was very thrilled to promote. My long term goal? I really want to be involved with a lingerie line one day. And the Softcup Company. I respect companies that support women in non-traditonal ways. It is such an exciting time of my life to have a career ahead of me. I find wisdom and encouragement by reading other’s journeys. Maybe mine can be one for you?
Some other things you might find me writing about here: attempting to be a wanna-be gourmet chef, my strange take on feminism, my ever changing journey in learning about economics, and me trying to figure out how the hell I feel about American politics (currently still inconclusive).
I love generating conversations with readers and encourage comments. So don’t be shy!
