Quarter-Centurian

It was my birthday this week, and I am now 25! It’s so weird. It feels like a milestone of some sort, but at the same time it’s still so young. (I’ve been making people guess my age all week – I got everything from 18 to 29, though they were mostly around 23! Score! haha)

I never would have guessed that at 25 I’d be living in New York, starting an actual career, or even that I’d be in the business world as opposed to something more literary/academic. Never! But I am so excited about my life! It’s still kinda scary, but scary is good because it means I’m still being challenged every day, which means I’m also still learning every day. And there is so much to learn, so much to improve upon, but at the same time I’ve also come a long way from college.

And yeah, I’m single right now and whatever, and yeah my mom at this point in her life was already married to my dad, but I know all that will come along at the time it’s meant to, and it isn’t something I worry about at all. I have my family (albeit half a world away), awesome friends all over the world, and am constantly meeting new people and constantly laughing. 🙂

The main point is, I guess, that I am really happy about my life right now (even with the stress of finding a roommate AND an apartment in 10 days…long story), and so excited for the years ahead, that there isn’t really anything else I can ask for. And THAT is truly a blessing! 🙂

  1. I hope you had a very happy birthday.

    Sometimes, I feel so old when I think about what my parents and grandparents were doing when they were my age–by now my mom was married and pregnant with me! Other times, I can’t wait to conquer the world.
