on turning 24

Today is my twenty-fourth birthday. Entering into my twenty-fourth year is...odd.
I've had a good year. While I've definitely had my downs throughout this year, I've tried my best not to let them completely tear me down. And I think I've done an alright job of keeping my head afloat.

I did a lot of things when I was twenty-three. I had fun. I laughed, I cried. I did things I never thought I could do before. I challenged myself. I failed. And through it all, I think I became a better version of myself.

I've still got plenty of my twenties left to live, and I'm pretty excited about that. Because if the next six years are anything like the first four, I'm in for a real treat.

I have plans for twenty-four. Big plans. Plans that hopefully will unfold during the next 365 days.

So thank you for coming here today to celebrate my birthday with me. This is the greatest birthday party ever :)
