The other day, I was filling something out online, and it asked for me to select the appropriate category for my age.

I selected 18-24 and then stopped. And laughed. I clicked the drop down menu again and drug it slowley to 25-34.

Then last night, Morrigan proceeds to tell me that I was in the older bracket of attendees at the concert. Lots of young college students there. I often forget I'm not one anymore.

And last night, I think it finally hit me where I am and what I've just done. There was a moment at the concert where Dave Matthews was playing a song and behind them were lights and large screens that showed city lights at night.

This isn't's permanent. I am not on a long business trip, I live here. I no longer work for the company that I have been with for the past 4 years.

I'm slowly crossing things off the list of all the things I've promised myself I'll do. Some of them earlier than I thought I would.

And it is here that I am in a good place, physically and in my head. Despite the move, a new job, new people, places and things....I am in a much better place.

I knew 25 would be a turning point of some sorts - insurance rates decrease, I don't get charged an extra fee or deposit to rent a car, I get a new age bracket on surveys, etc. But I had no idea that I would experience this much of a change at 25. It makes me a bit chary, but still excited, of what lies ahead.

Ahhh, my hometown... Atlanta can be a magical place for the young. I'm glad you are having fun and I can't wait to experience some of these things with you once I get closer to home :)

Ahh, to be 25 again!! It sounds like you've got a great hold on your life. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!

In all seriousness... 25 was great, but 40 is better!
