20s in 20

Two days ago, I turned 30.

As if being a writer didn’t make me reflective enough, adding a looming birthday to the mix sure did. So, what better way to commemorate one’s twenties than a numerically-themed blog post? Here’s twenty numbers, to describe the last ten years…

  • 8: residences in…
  • 4 cities in…
  • 2 states*
  • 1: home owned
  • 1: Bachelors degree earned
  • 300 pop songs obsessed over
  • 18 male celebrities swooned over
  • 1: husband married
  • 1: pet rabbit raised
  • 1: pet dog welcomed
  • 5: countries traveled*
  • 10: states visited
  • 2: novels completed
  • 2: more novels outlined
  • 215,000+ words of fiction written
  • 50+ flights taken
  • 1,825ish cups of coffee consumed
  • 0: tattoos tatted/piercings pierced
  • 1: tattoo still under consideration
  • 11 jobs worked***
  • Bonus: 2 major dreams determined for my 30s

*Seattle, Spokane, Anaheim, Irvine/Washington, California.
**Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, +1 principality (Monaco)
***counting part-time student jobs

While it’s a bit early to make any significant predictions about my 30s as a whole, I can say that the first two days have been awesome. Here’s what they’ve entailed:

  • 2 dear friends in town visiting
  • 2 more who came out for the whole day
  • 2 more who came out to dinner
  • 2 family members who joined in
  • 1 winery
  • 1 hard cider tasting room
  • 1 brewery
  • 2 favorite restaurants
  • COUNTLESS ALPACAS
