Hello 23!

Today is my Birthday!!!

I have yet to reach the age where birthdays make me feel old. Yes, I’m older, but I’m also wiser – AKA less of an idiot (hopefully). As I turn 23, I am thinking more about what this year holds for me – graduation, getting a job, moving out on my own. I’m super excited to get out into the real world, but I also am happy that I’m finally starting to feel like an adult. Now that I have 23 years of experience at living, I thought I’d take a minute to share two lists with you…

Yes, some of these are trivial, but it’s my life and my list. I encourage you all to make your own lists and share them with people who will support you in your endeavors. At this point I’m trying to just be me and not apologize for it. You’ll most likely witness me expand upon these lists as we go through the year, and if you don’t feel free to remind me!

Do you know of anything I should add to my list? Do you disagree with anything I’ve put on my list? Let me know in the comments!
