Yesterday I celebrated my 22nd birthday. A year ago I couldn't wait to turn 21. I spent my 21st in Vegas, a very appropriate destination if you ask me. I had a very enjoyable 22nd birthday. After I finished complaining about the fact that I felt old, I decided to buck up and enjoy it. After all, 22 isn't that old right?
As I laid by the pool with my Mom she helped me recall some of my favorite moments of the last year. In the last year I found my true passion with advertising, lived on my own for the first time and traveled to more countries than I could have ever dreamed of. I learned that cramming for a test isn't always the best method and that visiting your teachers in their office hours is a better route to take. I grew closer with my sister as she transferred to U of O and realized that parents don't always have to be seen as "parents", they are actually pretty fun.
It's crazy to imagine where this next year will take me. So far, I know I will be graduating college and moving to a new city. To which city is still undecided (although Chicago is still #1 on the list). First, I need to enjoy my last term of college!
