With my birthday approaching, I feel like doing something to mark the big day as well as doing something worth remembering during my last days as a 21 year old. This being the 8th of March means I’m exacting 22 days away from turning 22 years of old. 22 can be a bit of anti-climax after turning 21. It’s not a milestone like turning 10 or 13 or 16 or 18 or 21 but for me, it marks another year of maturity, another year of growth & another year to reflect on. With each birthday comes a new beginning and the ending of the old.
I haven’t been very active recently so I have decided to give myself a challenge that will be an interesting and daunting one to take on. I am going to try and I really hope I can make it to the end of this, blog for 22 consecutive days. This being day one where this mini-marathon begins and day twenty-two, the day I hopefully cross the line being March 29, the day before my birthday. I think this will a great opportunity for me to reflect on my first year as a bona fide adult, no longer a young boy but a young man trying to understand where his place in the world is. I’ve had lofty highs and sinking lows but I thank the friends and families around who have supported me and continue to do so right now. Last year was a poignant time in my life and I hope the next 12 months will bring even more moments to reminisce about.
Now is a time to look onwards and forwards on my quest to find out first and foremost what the hell I what to do with my life. What do I what to achieve? How will I get there? Will I be able to do everything I want before time is too late? All these questions and with such limited time, I can’t hang around doing nothing for too long. Hopefully by blogging for 22 days in a row, it’ll push me out of my comfort zone and talk about things I would not have talked about in the past, I think this will a good learning experience.
22 days of non-stop posts, ambitious or stupid. Either way, this will be fun and quite annoying in equal fashion. I look forward to the challenge.
