Another year around the sun.

31 today.

I’m not quite sure how I feel. I do know that I have been having quite the freak out the past few days leading up to it. I don’t know why I set these arbitrary deadlines for myself, but it’s almost like my brain cannot stop it.

The introvert in me wants to just read a good book, maybe go to the movie by myself tonight. Just spend the time by myself, doing what I please.

The reality of my life is that I’ve got six people coming over here tonight for dinner (that I didn’t invite and only found out about a half hour ago), so my mother is spending the day vacuuming and cleaning the floors with a carpet cleaner, so it looks like I’m in for a lot of noise the next few hours.

I’m trying to not let it get to m.

Wow, this post is sounding a lot more negative than I intended it to be.


I’m genuinely happy about that. I just wish people would let me spend it the way I wanted to.


Thank you, dearly, kindly, wonderfully to every beautiful soul who purchased one of the #MillennialLifeCrisis shirts. It means a great deal to me and I hope that when your shirts show up you love them as much as I love mine! Today is the last day the #MillennialLifeCrisis shirts will be listed on the TeeSpring store. The other shirts will stay up there for now because it’s an experiment for me to try and crack the Pinterest Alogirthm. But, the #MillennialLifeCrisis shirts will be disappearing as of midnight tonight. If you purchased one, thank you. If you’d still like to purchase one, they’ll be up until midnight PST.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your consistent support this year. Thank you for talking me down from my anxiety attacks and for supporting me at my lowest of lows and celebrating me at my highest of highs. For a bunch of strangers, you feel like a giant family to me, and that’s a pretty great feeling to have.

Here’s to 31.

  1. Belated birthday greetings (sorry, internet connections in this part of NZ are flaky). I hope your birthday dinner ‘celebration’ turned better than you feared it would. Best wishes for your new year, may it bring you happiness and contentment. 😊


  2. Awww crap, sorry I’m late… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 🎉 ♥🌷♥🎉

    Sounds like a busy time – I hope you had a lovely day and that you get to do what YOU want to do, too. That’s why it’s really a birthweek, not a birthday! 😉

    Caz xx

    1. Thank you so much ❤ It's never too late for birthday wishes. People could wish me a happy birthday all year if that wasn't weird. lol


    1. Ooohh, I don’t know why I didn’t see this until now but I just wanted to say thank you for the belated birthday wishes ❤ You're right – chocolate solves EVERYTHING! lol


  4. Happy Belated Birthday. I thought I lost you, and I got nervous because I love your blog so much. I keep telling my family about this amazing blogger, you. You help me see through the eyes of a different generation so well. Thank you for all the hard work you put in here on your blog. The world would be a better place if we treated others as if it were their birthday every day.

    1. Oh, I’d never leave this now. Once I find myself a new job to settle into, Knight and I are going to start using our money to travel. He’s going to be the photographer and I’m going to write about all the places we go and the people we meet and the things to experience. That’s the dream, anyway. That’s what I plan to do with this blog long term.
