...I am starting to become a lot more health conscious. I’m not an old bird by any means, but I’ve started to pay a lot more attention to staying healthy in my 20’s. Sure, you can get away with a lot, but I think it will make a difference later. I’ve slowed/stopped alcohol intake (big time), and I’m trying to “eat clean.” Sure, I’ll eat a granola bar, which is “processed food” but whatever. It’s all about balance. I’m just saying that I don’t want to get cancer because I love Lean Cuisines.

As I Get Older...
...I realize that I am becoming more and more of a cry baby. I used to very rarely cry. I would cry at something incredibly sad or meaningful. I now cry while watching the season finale of Scrubs. I need to get a grip…
...I realize that it is nearly impossible to find cute jean shorts that don’t look like denim underwear. When did shorts get so short?
...I care less about my appearance. (This is good and bad). When I was younger, I would make sure that every hair was in place, makeup was done, and my outfit perfectly matched. Now, you’re lucky if I’ve showered. True story.
Finally…whoa…ready for something deep here?
...I value life more. Working in the ER has a HUGE thing to do with this. I see people die, not on a daily basis, but much more often than your average person. When I see a child struggling to hang on, a young mom pass away from a freak accident, or even an old man taking his last breaths, you realize how fragile life is. It can be taken away from you in an instant, and every minute is truly a gift. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become much more grateful for the life I’ve been given.
