Twenty-Seven, Go To Heaven


Ugh I hate this time of the year. It get’s all cold and miserable outside and I get another year older. I’m entering my late-twenties now. Fuuuuuck.

I just re-read what I wrote after my last birthday and looking back, I think i’ve done a pretty good job progressing from last year. This isn’t the time to pat myself on the back though, there’s still a lot more I want to achieve before i’m truly satisfied. Although, I do finally have a career driven job that I truly love and look forward to on the daily. I also have lots of great supportive friends and family around me; i’m pretty stoked on that.

What I think I really want to work on next year (besides getting a boyfriend, paying off student debt, and getting a apartment) is my attitude. I’m aware that I can be a really mean and hateful person sometimes… even though I don’t mean it most of the time. I’m going to do my best to be a more outwardly positive person, try to accept the things I can’t change, and celebrate the things I can.

I hope I can re-read this post around the same time next year and say that i’ve definitely grown. That’s all I can really hope to do each year, grow as a person and move closer towards my long-term goals in life. Right?

    Kudos to you for being ballsy enough to post such personal stuff. Every year, I go through the same process as you do! At least we are reflecting and aiming for continuous progress :)
