The 25th Year

Good Morning! Today is my 25th birthday! I can’t believe it. The past year has been incredible. Looking back at how much life has changed in a year is really incredible.

1) GRADUATING. Graduating from graduate school is one of my greatest accomplishments. I am so lucky to have been able to continue my education right after my bachelors degree. I do NOT miss my commute!



2) LANDING MY DREAM JOB.  Soon after graduating I interviewed for a librarian position within the organization I had worked for the past five years. I was incredibly lucky to get a job so soon after graduation. (psst I am a nice librarian, not one of those scary ones)



3) WE BOUGHT A HOUSE. Chris and I have been eager to move in together (finally) after 6 years together. We were able to save our money while living at home and were able to buy a house over the summer.




I have made some incredible friends and had some wonderful experiences. Life has been incredibly good to me this year. I am so excited to see what comes next!
