The Archives

by Susan Pogorzelski on June 27, 2015


I spent the majority of my twenties trying to figure out my career path and personal life on this blog. In the beginning, it was just a place to voice my thoughts as I struggled to navigate the professional world. In the end, it became a haven–a sacred place for me to work through my personal experiences and share the emotions I always feel so deeply.

This blog changed my life. It gave me an outlet, introduced me to lifelong friends, showed me wisdom and humility, and helped me figure out where I belonged. Most importantly, it allowed me to discover who I am and become more of who I want to be.

But who I am is no longer a twenty-something.

I know. Believe me, I know.

While I’m closing this chapter here at twenty(or)something, the story’s not over.



On my professional creative website, you can find my books, fiction, photography, and a continuation of this blog, including my experiences with Lyme Disease (select the green ribbon on the home page for an updated version of the Lyme Chronicles).

On my business website, Brown Beagle Books, you can find all things related to writing and fiction, including information on my consulting, coaching, and editing services.


On my Tumblr, I post everything from short snippets of fiction-in-progress to romantic pictures of bookstores and wanderlust travel destinations, quotes, and music.


And then there’s Twitter. I’m always on Twitter.

This website will remain up indefinitely as an archive of my past writings and experiences. Feel free to have a look around if this is your first time here or say hi in the spaces shared above. If you’ve been here since the beginning–thank you isn’t enough.

I’m always going to be grateful for this little corner of the world–and to each of you for being a part of this journey.






What Makes The Lucky One

December 17, 2013

One and a half years in, and I’m at the stage of treatment Lymies like to call pulsing: off the meds for one week, then back on them for three more, repeating this for a few months until I can increase the time to two weeks off, two weeks on, and so forth until I’m […]

When Everything Is Gold

July 22, 2013

I can’t quite believe it. Maybe I’m still in shock that all of this is actually coming true, or maybe I’m still in working-mode and the reality of it hasn’t quite hit me yet. I wonder if it will ever stop feeling so surreal… Yesterday was the launch party where I got to celebrate a […]

Gold in the Days of Summer: A Novella

June 10, 2013

Gold in the Days of Summer: A Novella is on its way! A few weeks ago, I found a package waiting for me on the front porch when I got home from work. I could see it from my car window, standing upright against the door, and my heart beat a bit faster as I […]
