Another Decade...

Tomorrow will be my last day in my twenties. I am not where I thought I would be at 30.  No husband, no kids, no home owning.  When I was 19, I was desperate to no longer be a teenager.  I wanted to be an adult so bad and prove I was a grown up.  I stumbled a lot in my 20s.  I did a lot of things I am proud of and just as many things I am not proud of.

Highlights of my 20s:

  • living in and traveling through Europe.
  • graduating SDSU
  • running 7 half marathons
  • running 14 miles
  • deciding to leave the entertainment industry
  • finding myself and being happy with who I am 
  • deciding to go to grad school
  • learning to cook
  • pledging Kappa Delta and now advising UCLA KDs
  • making the best friends of my life
  • many more....
As I move into the next decade, I have never been happier in my life.  Work is amazing and there are some exciting things brewing in that department.  Grad school is the best decision I have ever made, not only do I love what I am studying, I have met some of the most amazing people ever, who I am so indebted to.  I am recovered from hip surgery and training for my first marathon. I also get to work with amazing UCLA students, who never cease to amaze me with their talents and ambition. I have great friends and family who support me through everything and every crazy idea I have. 

Here's to the next decade and the excitement it holds!
