HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Well, it's that time of year again! Time to break open the piggy bank and start shopping for someone other than yourself, even though you're probably going to be buying yourself a gift or two along the way.

I know I can save myself the agony by getting my shopping done earlier, but that just defeats the rules of procrastination.

In the last year of my early 20s I did a lot of reflecting, learned a lot more about myself and became someone who I was proud of. I reminisced on those years and realized how different I am now compared to my early 20s when I thought I had everything figured out. Which is why I started to curate a list of 24 things I learned at 24.
