I’m Feeling 25

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling….25? It’s finally here- the day I turn a quarter-of-a-century. While I still may look like an 18-year old, I swear that I’m actually now, officially in my “mid-twenties”. Yikes. While I can drone on and on about how getting older stinks (as well as having a birthday in the brutal cold winterย and right around Valentine’s Day), I thought instead I’d focus on a few big things that happened during my 24th year, as well as a few goals for 25.

At age 24 I…

  • moved out of my parent’s house and into a new apartment in a new state with my boyfriend
  • got a new job that I’m very passionate about and genuinely enjoy going to each day
  • adopted a sweet little kitten that I can’t imagine living without
  • took on two freelance writing clients + had my writing featured on a few cool websites
  • worked on my mental health to become a healthier, happier person

For 25 I hope to…

  • spend more time reading
  • make new friends (which is hard as a 20-something in a relationship)
  • finally reach my goal weight (almost there!)
  • take on a few new side business ventures
  • start writing my book

  6. Happy birthday, Rachel! I loved my 25th, but for some reason it was my 26th that gave me an overwhelming sense of how old I’m getting. It’s probably that downhill roll to 30 freaking me out? haha. Enjoy your day! ๐Ÿ™‚
