Is today really my last day as 22-years-old? How? I feel like I just turned 21 and now I have to face 23?! What is this madness?

Each year, I always like to spend my birthdays reflecting on the past year of my life. Sure, this is what most people use the new year for, but I’ve always felt birthdays  are a much more personal way to recap where you’ve been and focus on where you’re going. And so, what better way to recap my year than to share 22 awesome things that happened to me this year.
