Today is my last day of being 24 and since I have not updated here this past year I wanted to do a recap to show you what a ride it’s been.
When I was 24,
I started working full time at Elemental LED
and hosted many a DIY competition.
I spent eight weekends and a few week days learning at BAVC.
and walked this guy.
I tried out improv,
and got my first pair of reading glasses.
I light painted
and crashed many photo booths.
I did my nails
which showed up on Refinery 29!
I made amazing, wonderful, creative and passionate new friends.
And caught up and reconnected with oldie but goodie friends.
I met many people I have admired and respected for so long.
From Left to Right / Top to Bottom: Nirvan Mullick, Tiffany Shlain, Kina Grannis, Gretchen Rubin, Austin Kleon & Jill Bliss.
I visited the headquarters of two titans of social media,
went to LA a few times,
and a couple faires.
I celebrated many a birthday,
and a 25th anniversary.
I surfed for the first time.
And swam with my favorite animal – honu.
I played at Caine’s Arcade,
road shot gun in the Pizza Planet Truck,
and watched the entire Live Action Toy Story from a copy from the creators before it hit YouTube.
I modeled for my favorite photography website in the world – Photojojo! (Thanks Margo!)
Of course, this is just my highlight reel.
When I was 24,
two inspirational-to-no-end bright young women in my life past away at 25.
and Jessica Lum.
I dedicate this year to you both.
I promise to use my time wisely,
holding my dear ones close,
and helping those I can.
To being a quarter of a century,
and taking risks toward who I’m meant to be on this planet.
