23 for 23


In just under an hour I will be turning 23. It’s the first time in my life I actually feel like I’m a year older and like I’m actually a grown up (despite my unhealthy selfie habit). I am very excited to embark on the next year of my life, I feel like it will be a good ‘un. Listening to Taylor Swift’s 22 on repeat, I compiled this list, in no particular order, of 23 things I would like to accomplish in my year of being a 23 year old. 23 for 23!
