Another year older and maybe another year wiser. For some reason this birthday feels different then the rest. Maybe it's because I'm finally getting a handle on this whole "adulting" thing. Or maybe I'm just finally learning how to actually live my life to it's fullest potential! Or maybe it's neither of those things and I'm finally understanding who I am and what makes me happy. For this birthday, instead of listing out a bunch of things I wish to accomplish, I've decided to list out a bunch of things I have learned over the past 27 years of my life. Lets get it.
