Yesterday, with the company of some of my closest friends, I celebrated turning 27 years old with dinner, drinks, and excellent conversation. I’ve always enjoyed birthdays, and this year, I wanted to take time to reflect on what I learned over the past 12 months and set goals for myself to accomplish before my next birthday. I’ve found that structuring specific things to do has helped me tremendously, and I’ve applied that thinking to help me make the most of 27.
