Has it really been over a year?
How could you celebrate a birthday with anything other than a cupcake?
As I went to write my latest post, I was looking through Blogger and much to my surprise I've hit 100 posts! A little over a year ago, I wrote my first Semi-Charmed post on Thursday May 6, 2010. I had been home just days after my year of traveling for Tri Sigma. I was still in a somewhat comatose state, staring at my computer for hours each day watching LOST, and trying to debrief from the high levels of energy I put out during that year.
It was my mother's birthday. I didn't know it, but it was exactly a year from when HESA 2011, an amazing group of people I was fortunate to know this year, would graduate from USC. I'm not exactly sure what else I did that day, but I must say I am so glad that I decided to continue blogging after it was time to close up my travel blog.
I can't begin to think about all of the adventures and all of the changes I've been through since that first post. It was just the beginning of summer. My last summer of freedom, which I spent unemployed and at home. As much as I complained about being "bored" I couldn't have been more lucky to spend a lazy summer around my family and my best friends back in Maryland.
Shout out to my followers and frequent readers. While sometimes I feel like I use my blog for the incessant ramblings I don't want to bestow on other people, I hope you enjoyed something from these 100 posts, and I hope you stick around for the next 100 and more!
So here's to the 100 posts that chronicled my past year. My year of change, growth, knowledge, love, and most of all--growing up when I thought I was already an adult.
