Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
– Albert Einsten

Oh my lanta, I’m twenty-six today. I’m officially in my late-twenties, and to be honest, I feel like I just turned 21 the other year! Last year, I wrote about how 25 was going to be a great year and I was spot on. A few important things that have happened over this past year:

  • trained and worked as a wound care/treatment nurse
  • bought an annual pass to the National Parks
  • got back into hiking even more
  • saw Hamilton: An American Musical in San Francisco
  • aaaand got engaged at said musical (!!!)
  • gardening became a new hobby of mine
  • kept up with this blog – MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT
  • met up some cool new people (waves to Nancy & Alyse)

I initially thought of doing a “26 things I learned before 26” sort of thing but to be honest, what I’ve learned is something I need to keep to myself and it’s probably embarrassing to share. Then I thought of writing a “26 things about me” post, but if you read the blog, then I’m sure you can gather 26 facts about me or even more! So I thought of making a short bucket list of things I want to do/challenge myself to do before I turn 27 next year:

  • lose xx amount of pounds (maybe I’ll share this number someday)
  • hike 27 new trails
  • level up in the nursing field – broaden my expertise than just doing psych & school nursing
  • say NO to Starbucks and rice
  • run two miles daily without wanting to die
  • get back into golfing
  • practice yoga
  • brunch more
  • be more mindful
  • be one with my veggies

As for my birthday, I spent it surrounded with the people dear and closest to my heart. Yesterday, I went to an Air Show with my family then we had some Korean BBQ for a late lunch/early dinner celebration. For today, I had planned on hiking but instead, I had Japanese food delivered to the house and binge-watched Stranger Things and Hawaii Five-O with Chris; my parents got me an Oreo ice cream cake and I blew out some candles. Life is great when you’re surrounded by people you love. I also received some amazing news today so 26 is already looking like it’s going to be an amazing year.
