And That’s a Wrap, Twenty-Three

I figured the best way to finish out this year of goals would be by sharing a few statistics/reflections on what I’ve written this year.

Number of blog posts this year| 52
Number of words written| 43,150 (not including the 171,912 words I journaled)
The post I wish I could rewriteLife Lessons Shared by a Twice-Moved Young Adult
The post I am most proud ofFormer Class Clowns in Cars Getting Coffee
The post I laughed out loud at That Time a Flu Shot Tested my Survival Instincts
The post I was terrified to publish| Standing at a Crossroads (Yet Again)

There you have it: my 23rd year. It was full of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade the experiences I had for the world. It’s always great looking back because it makes me even more excited for the future. So stay tuned for a new set of goals for a brand new year of my life.
