So, today’s the fifth anniversary of my 21st birthday! I know, it’s hard to hang on to being a 21-year-old for so long, but I’m hanging in there 
Corny jokes aside, woohoo! I’m 26! I learned a lot in my 25th year of life. 25 was the year I finally felt comfortable being a grown-up, and a year where I was able to handle my business, accomplish my goals, and really I guess ~believe in myself~. Ok, this is getting real corny real fast. Is it too late now to say sorry?
Turning 26 also means 30 is gonna creep up on me sooner than I know it. I saw a bunch of blogs have a "25 before 25" type deal, but unfortunately I’m too old for that now. Whoops. So now, I present to you, 30 before 30. AKA, 30 things I wanna get done before I turn the big 3-0. I’ve got 4 years. Hold me accountable, y’all!
