24 Things From My 24th Year

***In case you missed it - I wrote a surprise Sunday post yesterday! I'm announcing some news in it and asking for some tips and advice. Specifically about switching to wordpress and etc. etc.***

One of the things that I love about being a January baby is that my birthday always goes directly with the new year. Which means that today there are only 24 days left of my 24th year (my birthday is the 29th in case you didn't want to do the math). How odd. I very (very, very, very) vividly remember being stressed, worried, freaked out, and even upset a few months back about my upcoming 25th birthday. Now here I am, 24 days away, and I'm just crazy excited about turning 25.

However, it's not time to talk about that yet. For today I want to quickly recap my 24th year.
