I'm a huge lover of birthdays don't get me wrong. I mean you get to celebrate the most precious gift, life!. However, in the weeks leading up to my birthday, which is tomorrow, I've been really reflective. One of the things that keeps popping into my mind is that I'm going to be 23 and I still don't have my whole life put together yet and that sort of scares me. I still question my choices, question my dreams, change my mind, do stupid things, and make mistakes. But I have learned quite a few things in my 23 years and in honor of my 23rd birthday, today I am posting an article about 23 things I've learned in 23 years.
