Well, guys. I am turning 25. weh.
After a bit of a whine (and a few glasses on wine), I realized I was having a quarter life crisis. What have I done with my life? Where am I now? What’s next? Have I accomplished anything I am proud of? FYI, I am Jewish Moroccan, so the parents are constantly asking about grandkids…(yikes!).
Although most people coin monetary value and a 9-5 job with health benefits as success, I have found my version of success else where-through travel. I have had 9-5 jobs, and I am currently working full time while managing this blog. But that’s not my success–my success is being able to relocate to Australia on my own and learn to start over.
Backpacking Southeast Asia (while being in a relationship and he still loves me after everything). Working for international companies. Working for Coachella. Traveling to 34 countries. Never having jury duty. Found my McDreamy (yes, that’s Jack!). Starting our blog. And ultimately, living a happy and exciting life. In the end, isn’t that what counts?
So ya, I sooked. I will still sook. But I am excited to see what the future brings!
So in honor of my 25th, here is a list of things to do before 25 (that I have done and still wish to do) that you have to try at least once before you are 25 or hey, even 30! :)
