Turning 24

November 20, 2016

Hi everyone! Sorry for the radio silence on the blog front last week, but the wifi situation at our Airbnbs hasn’t been the best. Not ideal for a blogger, let me tell you!! But now everything is up and running, and I’m excited to get back into the swing of things when I get back home. I can’t believe we’ll be home tomorrow! Although I’m sad our trip is coming to an end, I’m definitely looking forward to being home.

In other news, I turned 24 this past week! It still feels pretty surreal, considering I was in dreamy Cinque Terre for my birthday (stay tuned for a full blog post on Cinque Terre!). I feel like twenty four is one of those weird in between birthdays that doesn’t matter all that much. I mean, I still can’t even rent a car! But for me, this birthday is a big one because I feel like I’ve grown SO much this past year. Even though things might not be perfect (I’m still on the job hunt living the post-grad struggle, which isn’t exactly where I pictured myself at 24), I know that I’m where I need to be and that it’s okay. I still don’t know what I want to do with my life, but it’s okay. It’s taken me a long time to accept this fact, but I finally realized that there’s no point in beating myself up just because I don’t have life completely figured out at 24. I feel so much stronger than I did a year ago, which I think is all that matters! This year has been full of lots of ups and downs (sometimes felt like more downs than ups), but I’ve grown so much because of it. I can’t wait to see what this new year brings!

Cheers to 24!
