This Way Up ↑

I turned 25 last year and expected my life to be like Friends; zero parent involvement, coffee every morning, a gorgeous boyfriend, and grieving over another year lost.
But that didn't happen. I still see my parents every week, I don't even drink coffee, and I'm still single. That being said, I did grieve the loss of something. The loss of my 'age box'. No longer am I in the 19-24 box. I'm now 25-29, ugh.

I don't want to simply check off this new box and forget about everything that happened in the old one. I want to pack each box with the memories it provided.

So to ease the transition from age box, to age box, I made a list of the 24 things that happened to me while basking in the youthful glow of box 19-24:

  1. I turned 21 and went to Vegas (twice).
  2. I graduated university
  3. I started a company
  4. I stopped fake tanning
  5. I got a boyfriend for the first time (clearly that didn't work out)
  6. Chandler's still alive (I can look after living things)
  7. I moved out on my own
  8. I pay my own bills (except my phone, the family plan is cheaper)
  9. I travelled to England, Spain and France
  10. I went to Hawaii
  11. I road-tripped to Sasquatch (twice)
  12. I saw over 50 movies
  13. I didn't have any debt (now I do)
  14. I lost and gained over 100 pounds (tricky way of saying, I'm still a little bit fat)
  15. I experienced a death (I still miss you Marcie) 
  16. I started my blog 
  17. I went from flip phone to iPhone
  18. I read a book by JK Rowling that wasn't Harry Potter
  19. I discovered that I'm a Miranda 
  20. I started taking selfies (apologies to the world)
  21. I cooked for the first time 
  22. I dyed my hair blonde
  23. I travelled to New York City (3 times)
  24. I went to San Francisco
Honourable mention: I found out who my close friends are

TAKE THE CHALLENGE: I challenge you to make a list of things you accomplished before you move from one age box to the next. Turning 45, list 45 things, Turning 19, I hate you... (kidding, but at least turn 25) 

You only have a certain amount of time in each box, so make the most of it. Before you know it, you'll be taping that box shut and moving up! 25-29, please handle with care.
