When I was twenty-two my life changed in so many different ways. I went through a horrible heartbreak, bought my first car, got a new job, moved far away from home, met a lot of new people, made a new best friend, went through another heartbreak, and adopted a cat. All of these happenings, plus all the other little things that I neglected to mention, have changed me in ways I could never have imagined. I had no idea last year on this day what amazing things were in store for me and so, on this day, I can only hope to be as lucky in the coming year. Today is my 23rd birthday. I have no"23 before 24" list, but I do have some things that I am hoping for in my 23rd year. This is going to be big, you guys.
