It’s my 23rd birthday today… my Jordan year! Last year, I combined my birthday post with my new years resolutions and I decided to do it again this year! I think it’s a good way for me to set goals for myself and then look back and see how much I accomplished in a year. While I was 22, I completed 17 out of 22 of the things on my list! The five that I didn’t complete, I incorporated into this list. Here are 23 things I would like to do while I’m 23!
