Another year, and another year older. Only this time I'm going to be a quarter of a century older. Where did all the time go? Where did my youth go? I'm not going to make a huge reflection on this, but it's just so crazy to think that I'm essentially no longer a kid. While I haven't been for awhile, I just still feel like I'm 21 and about to take on the world. Changing ages shouldn't be such a big issue, but for me it's just about how far I've come personally and professionally. I don't feel I've accomplished everything I wanted to by this age, and all of the expectations I had for myself were only reached about halfway. The career and position that I've dreamt about is so close I can almost touch it, but the opportunity on the other edge of the cliff is plucking my fingers off one by one. I'm just not where I'd like to be, and after trying so hard with college and applying to different positions, I'm burnt out. I have just taken on a new path in my career, it's not what I expected, but I'm hoping that it's the right thing for me to do since all my other options are out the window. I guess I have to let fate lead me where I'm supposed to be and wish for the best. I'll just cross those last few fingers that are teetering on the edge and hope that I can move up quickly in the new position I've accepted. Wish me luck!
Let's change moods, alright? It's my 25th birthday, and I should celebrate and be happy that I'm healthy, have a roof over my head and have people who love me. That's all I can ask for, what really anyone can ask for. My beautiful sister is throwing me a birthday party this weekend, and I'm stoked. It's a surprise location andI don't know who is going to show up. I'm so excited and looking forward to wearing the dress I purchased, which helps transition into the topic of this post! It was on the top of my list, alongside the Kate Spade bag my mother and sister bought me. Strike two off this then, and I will now just dream about the rest. I feel so lucky that I got the two biggest ones I wanted, so huzzah! Look for pictures of the event on Instagram next week! xoxox
