Earlier this month, I officially entered the final year of my 20s. It seems like only yesterday that I was a newly-minted 20-year-old: excited that I was no longer a teenager but also terrified about going off to college and living on my own. It seemed like there were so many ways a could fail at being an adult. How would I do my laundry without turning everything pink and toddler-sized? How would I prepare food more complicated than Cup-o-Noodles? What if I got a messy roommate?!
Although I can’t say that I navigated the past nine years without a few shrunken clothes and lukewarm ramen cups, I like to think I have evolved into a well-rounded and responsible adult human male. I live on my own and I’m not struggling financially; I’m basically debt-free; my body and mind are healthy; and I finally have a job that I look forward to each day. Never content to rest on my laurels, I thought I should maybe use this time to reflect on my life and where I’d like it to head in the coming years. You might even call them… “Mid-Year Resolutions“.
