Statistically - people that have birthdays, live longer.
There goes another year. But I'm alive and healthy so that is a lot more than a lot of people at my age (especially if you've watched Dallas Buyers Club - I haven't seen it, but that's what I hear). Every year the day comes and the day passes. Already it's mid-afternoon and I'm wondering where my day has gone. My BIRTH DAY! I was born at 2:03 pm so I have a couple more hours until I am officially 25 years old, but the day is literally flying by.
Quarter of a century. WOW! And what do I have to show for it? I've completed a lot. High School, College, Grad School, My First Job, My first cross-country move, my first and second and third half-marathon, Lots of books, killed multiple iPhones, lots of boys. I haven't killed lots of boys... there have just been lots of boys. Just a lot has happened. So I want to make this year count. I didn't put a ton of thought into it - just made a list of things I can accomplish and some things that would be challenging and then others, I'll be lucky if I complete.
So many of the challenges in my 25th year are things I want to do in my life. So why not mark them off the list and replace them with better more challenging things. I have decided that #24 Journal Everyday - I will journal everyday about my life as a 25 year old. It might be cool. And it might be trash. We will see.
That is what this process is about - seeing how far I can push myself to do things out of the norm. Change it up a bit. 25 years is too long to live life the same. This next Quarter of a Century will definitely be interesting. Can you imagine what will happen....Okay, sidetracked! That is a whole other post.

It's going to be fun
So here we go. To a new year. To a new list. And to 25 challenging, fun, easy, and unpredictable moments to come!
