Turn of the Century

I’ve officially joined the 25 club. You never know what each year has in store, but for some reason, this year seems even more mysterious…in a good and exciting way. Last year I made a list of 24 things I wanted to do while I was 24. I managed to cross of half the list, and I don’t feel defeated that I didn’t accomplish all 24 because I know I did so much more than what made the list. I’m in the process of creating one for my 25th year now; however, this might be a shorter list with bigger goals (like planning a wedding for starters).

Another thing on my list: not to neglect this blog! I’ve been pretty terrible this month, but I explained myself a little in my last post. I promise (again) that I’ll be back on track soon, but I did enjoy a great (and much deserved) vacation with my family, and I DID drive across the country (again) remember?

Never in a million years would I have thought that I would drive cross-country less than a year after doing it for the first time, and surprisingly, it wasn’t as terrible as I thought. I’m not going to lie, I love to travel and explore new places, so I was excited to see new places BUT the long days in the car…dreaded it.

3 days and over 2500 miles.

I-40 is definitely pretty boring at times, but it’s still pretty amazing to me how big and how different our country is. Car games and smartphones deserve a round of applause as well. And now that I’m basically a professional roadtripper, I’m hoping to make some more (shorter) road trips in the next year and explore all there is on the west coast (add that to the “25” list too).
