Hey guys, welcome back to TNTH!

Last year, I did something similar to this by listing 22 Things That Happened/I Learned While Being 22 in a post, and hey, the time of year has come around! Today is my last 24 hours being 23 years old and for the most part, I am glad this age is coming to an end. 23 was a rough one, and you can read more on this in yesterday’s post: “23: A Self-Reflection“.

Without further ado, here’s the list of 23 things:

Things That Happened:

  1. I launched TNTH on my 23rd birthday.
  2. I unexpectedly lost a family member.
  3. I finished my first year of grad school in the Spring.
  4. I went on my first getaway with my partner to Poughkeepsie over the summer.
  5. I cut about 5-6 inches of my hair over the summer.
  6. I got to go to Pennsylvania over the summer and during the holiday season.
  7. I started my second (and final year) of grad school in the fall.
  8. I got a second tattoo on my right arm that says, “write.”
  9. My family and I got a black cat named Babygirl.
  10. I rang in the new year with my extended family.

Things I Learned:

  1. You’ll never know what would happen unless you take a chance.
  2. Life is way too short to ever go to bed on bad terms with yourself, somebody else, life, etc.
  3. Never doubt your abilities, even when you’re at your lowest.
  4. Make and share memories with the person you love.
  5. Control is your worst enemy and losing it will drive you mad.
  6. Family dynamics don’t change, you just begin noticing the type of people they truly are.
  7. Time waits for no one, no matter how ready you are or not.
  8. Make statements that show the world what you stand for.
  9. New beginnings after tragic endings are needed for healing broken hearts.
  10. Positivity and support aren’t measured by the quantities in your life.
  11. Stop getting full off of the “appetizers” in life and focus on your “entrees”.
  12. Patience equals peace and stillness in a crazy, non-stop moving life.
  13. If you’re uncomfortable with where life is taking you, just remember it’s taking you down an unfamiliar path that will serve some purpose in your personal growth.

Goodbye, 23.
