Millenial- A person reaching adulthood in the 21st century.
That would be me. I’m Crystal, 33ish mother of three, partner to Miguel, trying to figure out earth and do life a little better. (You’ll see this tagline repeated in other places until I figure out something better.) I have over a decade in operations and project management which I deploy to compliment my tribal skills at will or demand.
Tribe- A social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked to economic, religious, or blood ties with a common culture and dialect. (whatever you are come on down, we save a seat for all! Unless of course you have 3 eyes, we have to draw the line somewhere)
= Me + 3 small children + partner + YOU + others = US
The purpose of all of this, is to be a living breathing repository of all the things that have worked for my tribe, in hopes that it helps your tribe, so we can be a tribe (corny, I know).
But really, most of what you’ll find here has been researched, tried, and used so hopefully it will help supplement you in your daily adulting or maybe you’ll find some things that can be used for inspiration for your own tribe. Lucky for you, I have 3 small children, so I’ll have 2 opportunities to mess up and try again so you don’t have to, if you don’t want to of course.
Nevertheless, our goal is to foster feelings of togetherness and community for a generation supposedly only out for “Me, Me, Me”, because really you and I know we are more about US, US, US.
Disclaimer- Anything featured is never absolute. This is what has worked for US. Take what you like, discard what you don’t and never sacrifice you.
