How in the World am I 25?

This past weekend I just turned a quarter of a century old. I honestly don't understand how that is possible. I feel like I turned 16 just yesterday. Yet here I am 25, finally able to rent a car, at a point where my car insurance can go down, as well as being an official adult in my eyes.

Man I have been asking myself what do I have to show for being 25? I don't have a career, I have massive student loan debt, I just barely graduated from college, and I am working as a volunteer. Than I remembered, that I am living out my dream. I may not be in a career but I am doing a job that I absolutely love. I may have massive student loan debt but I am in Uganda living the life I have always dreamed of. I may not be making very much money but I sure as hell can live comfortably in this beautiful country that I call home.

I got to spend my third birthday in Uganda but my first one actually living in this country. One of my fears heading to new places is celebrating a birthday alone especially as big as 25. Praise the Lord I have an incredible group of friends that have hands down become my people and I certainly did not have to spend 25 alone not even for a second. I started my birthday with my people dancing on a table at midnight and ended it with my people throwing up all over the place but being well taken care of. My birthday was spent at a pool, and cruising on the Nile sipping drinks and throwing back shots. Honestly it was one of the best birthday I have ever had.

We rang in 25 with a bang and I am so excited to see what is in store for the next year.
