28 things i tried to do before turning 28

Every year, I make a list of x number of things I want to achieve or complete before my next birthday. This past year, my 27th year of life, I wanted to focus on work. Career, or otherwise. I worked on my first union tv show (now, on my second), I production managed some hot wheels commercials, I briefly worked on a Spielberg film. My work brought me to puerto rico and to palmdale. I've learned a lot, and continue to learn from the people around me. It's been a tough year, to be honest. Most of the year was spent in a trauma induced funk, and I woke up sometime in the middle of it, in the middle of montana, where my smiles were genuine and i felt mostly healed. I've made friends and lost touch with others. I've found a place that feels like home / god / falling in love a thousand miles from where I live. As the last hour of 27 ticks on, I find myself. she's nervous and raw and hesitant to age, but she's living as good of a life as she can, given the circumstances. I'm thankful for legs that climb mountains and pants that hold walkies and a name that rests on green grass above where my brother lays. I'm grateful for trips down south or to my parents' kitchen or to hogwarts on a rainy day. I'm grateful for therapists named sara and summer in montana and apartment deck views of blue skies on sunny days. Most of all, I'm grateful to making it past the dreaded 27 club. Cheers, and here comes 28.
