Turning 27 this week. I am nearing paying off my student loans. Before I’m 30, I get to have financial peace and start saving for a house/property. My 10 year plan is getting pretty extensive! It’s sort of exciting for me. I have a few back-up plans included in my 10 year plan as well.
I wrote a 10 year plan 6 years ago when I graduated college. I am pretty sure I wrote that I was going back to school for my MFA in art history and library sciences. I would really like to do that, but that is one of my backups at this point since I don’t enjoy being in so much debt.
Let’s see. 26:
4th year in shooting weddings. 3rd year to actually do business under the state. Came out of having my business be my only source of income to becoming a full-time nanny + running my photography business. 4 tattoos. 1 break-up. Renewed our lease. Bought an awesome firepit. Lots of shows. Travelled to SF, NYC, LA, Las Vegas, Denver. Did way more hikes. More trips to Portland. Became an iPhone user. Shot the most film I have to date. Lots of new plants. New church. One of my best friend’s moved to SF. Her sister moved in. Illustrated my first children’s book. Drawing and painting a lot more. Became a regular at a coffee shop for the first time. First gym membership that I love. 1 photography show. Ate a lot of hot dogs.
The best part of my birthday will be getting to see Mark this week! It’s hard to believe we’ve been best friends for 10 years now.
