Today I am officially in my mid-twenties.
I feel so proud of everything that I’ve accomplished in the last year. I’ve sold my car and most of my possessions, moved across the country, rented a new apartment, found a new job, and made a life for myself here in San Francisco. After almost a year of living here, I feel like I’m coming into my own and settling into the city. I feel extremely grateful that I grew up in Maine and it will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart, but I’m also so grateful to have this amazing new experience of living somewhere completely new and giving it a go on my own. And although this blog tends to only highlight the fun and exciting things about city living, there are many not-so-glamorous aspects, too (like the fact that rent prices can’t stop won’t stop).
It’s been a year of both good and bad memories, of forging new friendships and cherishing old ones, of blossoming growth, and of crippling loss. I’m so grateful for the everything past year has taught me and I’m looking forward to what comes next. Bring it on, 24.
