25 Things I’ve Learned

This past week I celebrated my 25th birthday. It kind of hit hard that I’m getting old, but I used it as an opportunity to think about all of the things I’ve learned in my recent post-college, adult life. So here I have laid out 25 things I’ve learned in honor of my 25th birthday.
