25 Before 25: How Did I Do?

Since I turn 25 today, I thought I’d better look back at my 25 Before 25 list that I wrote in October and see how many things I was able to cross off of my list.  The answer?  Not as many as I’d hoped.  Life just got in the way!  There were a lot of unexpected things that happened between then and now.  There are some things that I’ve been working on, but didn’t feel comfortable crossing off the list quite yet.  I put a side note on others that didn’t work out as I’d hoped.  Oh well!
