I make a lot of promises to myself, but this year, I have 24 things I want to do that are long term projects. Some of these things will require personal time and labor, but I only have this one life (I say this, even though I believe in reincarnation…moving on). So here are 24 things I want to accomplish before I turn 25.
Today is my birthday, and I am turning 24 today. Twenty-three has been a long year, and after a year of career setbacks and steps forward and lots of driving, I am ready for my own little birthday traditions to start off a new year.
Now, day before yesterday, I posted a blogpost about what my habit based resolutions were going to be for the month of June. What I didn’t post was a list of “one off’s.” Things I won’t be doing every day, but NEED to actually set aside the time and make happen.

But I want to celebrate this year, and all the good bits of it.
I’m not one to watch expanses of tv at a given time. I rarely watch more than an hour or two at a stretch. But I sat down and watched all of Gilmore Girls, A Year in the Life, in one sitting. And I had a lot of feelings about it. Spoilers ahead, for those who haven’t watched it. Continue reading “TV Thoughts: Gilmore Girls, A Year in the Life”
In June, I talked about wanting to take on a Happiness Project, as modeled off of the book of the same name by Gretchen Rubin. So whatever happened to that?
