June 7th marked the one year anniversary of my first post on this blog. I can’t believe it’s already been a year, who knows where the time went? (Not me, that’s for sure).
Today is my half-birthday! I am officially 27.5 years old, and in honour of this I want to take you back to a post I made on my 27th birthday: 27 Books to Read in My 27th Year. In that post I wrote about 27 books that I wanted to read before my next birthday. Since half a year has passed, I thought it might be fun to check back in and see where I am at in this special TBR of mine.
Today I turn 27! It is both exciting and terrifying because I feel like now I’m fully into my late 20s and that’s scary. It doesn’t help that I feel like I haven’t achieved a lot in my life, though people who know me will give me a pep talk and tell me that teaching isn’t nothing. And that’s very true, it isn’t nothing. I am very proud of my teaching and love my job very much. That doesn’t make 27 any less scary and that doesn’t stop me from making comparisons to other people in my life.
Are any of you out there a writer as well as a reader? I am. For as long as I can remember, I have been writing stories as well as devouring them in book format. I, like many writers (or so I tell myself), am simultaneously really proud of the stories I manage to write and also think they’re kind of horrendous and/or boring.
