Celebrating my birthdays is always a weird thing for me. I always associate it with bad times. I think stems from the fact that my Mom banned me from having birthday parties due to my brattiness at the age of 10.
My plans for my birthday are very relaxed: Takeout Chinese, Mad Men, and cuddling on the couch. I think taking time to myself is the best thing I can do for my birthday. Most of the time I am running at work, busting my butt at the gym, or sprinting around the city trying to get someplace I’m needed. I want to take the time to reflect on the past year and figure out how I can improve myself.
24 things for my 24th year
- Book an international trip and go.
- Read 8 books.
- Stick to a budget – cause I’m an adult.
- Visit a relative that I haven’t seen in over a year.
- Work on my blog and get 1,000 page views a month. (See, I’m trying!)

- Spend less time watching TV and more time seeing the city.
- Worry less more about money.
