Twenty five

6 Aug

Today is the day, the big 2-5. I’m officially in my mid-twenties. I know I’m supposed to be all freaked out that I’m OLD and begin planning my quarter-life crisis, but I just don’t feel that way. Sure there are things I would change if I could, and Lord knows there is always room for improvement, but that’s life. It’s crazy and messy and surprises you. Isn’t that what makes it fun?

Each year is an opportunity to grow and learn and make mistakes. You can take chances, try new things and go new places. And make the best memories along the way. In year 24, I attended Oktoberfest in Munich, tried kidney for the first time, rediscovered my love for reading, found a job where I’m happy and spent an afternoon under the Eiffel Tower.

And that my friends are why birthdays are so awesome – you never know what lies ahead. I’m happy to turn another year older. I’m unapologetically 25.

25 today
