Twenty Something

Because I have been so ridiculously busy the past few months, I haven't really had the time to reflect on the fact that I'm twenty years old.

I had my 20th birthday on some lame old Tuesday in AIT. I didn't do anything special or feel different. I still don't really feel different, but now that I think about it, I really want to be sure that I make the most of my twenties.

The greatness of you life is measured by the experiences that you have. As a twenty-something you should be having the most interesting times of your life. Right?

Well, I think so. Personally, I think I'm about to have some seriously great adventures.

I started writing in this little log book about being Twenty. I'm hoping to keep at least one little journal for each year of my twenties. I know how hard it can be to keep up with a journal so it's a tough goal, but I think that when I am 30 and I look back on it, I will be so happy to have volumes of my twenties.

With this long weekend, I've been staying up a little bit later than usual, having some good conversations with a good friend over seas. I don't think I have laughed so hard in a very long time.

I'm sure it's hard to understand why this was so funny. In fact, I don't know why I laughed so hard, but I was brushing my teeth and tooth paste was going everywhere and I literally could not stop. We were having this tender "best friends" like moment and then...BAM! Evil face...

You're probably thinking, what the heck does that have to do with being 20? Well, that guy I was talking to is someone that I had to gather up my pride and maturity to forgive and stay friends with him...I think that was a pretty...20 something sort of thing to do! Or I just thought it was hilarious and had to share. 

On the Fourth of July nearly my whole building went out to the soccer field behind the chow hall to go watch the firework. It felt like a normal Summer night just like as if I was at home. It was fantastic! The fireworks show was great and it was a good night to be a young soldier, that is for sure. 

And finally, I keep meaning to post this before/after picture of my hair cut, but I keep forgetting! So here it is! I think I look so different, but I'm really digging this hair cut. My friend told me that I look like a "true hooah". I decided to just ignore him. I'm loving this. 

So far, my 20s aren't so bad. I mean, I've only been twenty for nearly two months, but I haven't got any complaints just yet! Hopefully it stays that way!

Until next time my lovelies! 

I'm Katie. I'm a 20-something Soldier & student taking each day one step at a time. Living through all the growing pains that come with becoming that person that I always wanted to be & finding that bright side in all of this Camo-Colored Chaos. You can get to know more about me here.
