24.


Over the weekend, I turned 24 years old. I can't even begin to wrap my head around how fast the years are flying by. I know 24 isn't anywhere near old but it's like... old. Aren't 24 year olds supposed to be grown ups who have their lives figured out? Honestly, I'm still waiting for the day when I wake up and actually feel like an adult. When I was younger, I thought being in your twenties meant you were magically going to get your shit together... but here I am, almost halfway through my twenties and I still don't know what I'm doing with my life.

Being in your twenties, you're in that weird in between-- definitely not kids but not full on adults. We're finishing up school, beginning our careers, moving out, learning how to be our own people-- starting our lives. Seriously, it's a lot to handle. I've learned that our twenties is our time for growing, for exploring, for learning, for loving; for just trying to figure out our place in this weird world.

As confusing as this age is, it's also so much fun. Twenty-three was a growing year for me for sure-  I traveled, I made friends and lost others, I fell in and out of love, I learned so much about myself -- I grew. Being unsure about the future used to scare the crap out me and was definitely the root of a lot of my anxiety attacks. Now, I've learned to love the feeling of not knowing... and while I don't have everything quite figured out, I have a much better idea of where I want to go and who I want to be. So here's to another year of growing and learning-- 24, please be good to me.

I got to celebrate my birthday all weekend and spent it with lots of my favorite people. I kicked off the celebration with seeing one of my favorite bands, LANY, in concert in LA on Friday night. On Saturday, I had friends over for a chill day of pizza and card games then went out with my girls for drinks at night. Sunday, my actual birthday, was spent at Disneyland (where I've spent the last like 5 birthdays) dressed to the nines for Dapper Day (post coming soon)!




Basically, I had the best birthday ever and I can't wait to see what this year has in store for me!

Until next time,
Stay Wild
