What is this called again? My Jordan year?
That’s right, folks. I turned 23 last week and yes, I was singing 23 all. day. LONG.
2014 has been quite the roller coaster year, especially with this ongoing job hunt. My birthday wish for this year was independence. I can’t say that I haven’t been independent thus far but with moving back home and trying to figure out the next step, independence gets lost once in a while.
Every year on my birthday, my friends and family go above and beyond to make this day extra special for me, and I can’t thank them enough. But for year 23, I decided to rely on myself for a special day and go on a solo birthday adventure.
It may not sound exciting to you but it’s not your birthday 🙂 I picked up my camera, got in my car and just drove. I found myself spending time at the NC Museum of Art, discovered a coffee+tea shop (and co-working space) called Gather, and got some spa treatment at Lorena Luca (thanks to my my wonderful friends).
For me, being able to just get in the car and create my own adventure was refreshing and a great way to start 2015 (my birthday is right before NYE so I’m essentially celebrating the new year).
