Welcome to The Caffeinated Millennial.
I’m Carena, and I am a twenty-seven-year-old caffeine addict living in small-town New Zealand. My standard coffee order is a small triple shot flat white. With almond milk. Want to know why?
I’m twenty-seven, and I’ve decided to go back to university. I’m currently studying a Master of Applied Social Work, which takes a short two years to complete. My undergraduate degree is in public relations and communication, so this is a whooooole other ball game! I’m also mum (or “MUUUUUUUM!”) to a tornado of a human. My five-year-old son. He is the absolute light of my life, but I am swiftly realising I am not fully equipped to deal with him unless I have a cup of coffee in hand. I also work part-time as a nanny. Why not add ‘blogger’ to my list?
I love an espresso martini alongside homemade pizza. I’m a Taurus sun, Scorpio moon, and Sagittarius rising. I find true crime podcasts relaxing. I fall asleep listening to Chicago Med. I love love. I’m constantly reading at least five books. I have a love of the gym and strength training. I’m a little obsessed with astrology. I’m a firm believer that nothing is better than a coffee and a date scone. I also love oversharing on the internet.
I created this space ti share everything from my life. The good, the bad, and everything in-between. Expect to see rants about dating, rambles about being a university student, and the occasional mention of my son.
Grab a cup of coffee and get settled in! It’s going to be a wild ride.
