Welcome to The Caffeinated Millennial.
I’m Carena, and I am a twenty-seven-year-old caffeine addict living in Auckland, 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 for a Bachelor of Social Work, and the degree takes four whole years. That is going to take a lot of caffeine. I’m also mum (or “MUUUUUUUM!”) to a tornado of a human. My four-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 contractor. Why not add ‘blogger’ to my list?
I love a coffee 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 to come and 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.
So, grab a cup of coffee and get settled in! It’s going to be a wild ride.
