So last Thursday (9/18) was my 27th birthday, and I can finally say that it kinda feels good. For the past few months tho I was freaking out about turning 27 partially because it means that im getting super close to 30 and I am no where near close to where I thought I would by this age. When I was younger I had so many plans for myself and where I wanted to be and should be in life by now. Granted Im still young and I have time to figure it out but why didnt anyone tell me that being an adult would be this difficult??
The time leading up to my birthday I was clueless as to what exactly I wanted to do to celebrate it, because I usually keep it low key and just go to dinner. This year my friend and I went to San Francisco and loved every moment of it. It was a long overdue vacay seeing that my last real vacation was back in 2013 :( and because one of my friends already lives in San Fran it was a perfect chance to see him and also have a place to stay! We got to San Fran the day before my birthday and hit the ground running. My friend's brothers got there later that night and made the time there more fun than I could have imagined!
The night of my actual birthday we went out and I think it will go down as one of my best birthdays yet! I was so happy to just be living and experiencing new and different things. I was overwhelmingly full and grateful. Celebrating my birthday that way in a different place made me realize that 1) I should take the time to live more 2) 27 probably wont be as bad as I made it out to be and 3) I have been blessed with an opportunity that most people dont get and I was humbled.
