Ok, it is official. Today is the day I have been dreading since my teen years. I think it is the “7.” To me, it just sounds so old. I can very clearly remember a time around the age of 16 or 17 where I told someone that 27 is the birthday I am dreading most, it will officially mark the age when shit needs to get done because I am entering my late life and will never again be thought of as young. Blah blah blah, I hear all of you now telling me I am crazy and that I am still young. But as my friend Janice has pointed out a few times today already, I am in my late twenties. Not the fun years of graduating and getting to drink legally, and not the mid years where you are still young and can get away with making dumb decisions and drinking a bit too much without going into liver failure the next morning, no. This is late twenties. LATE Twenties! People say the word late when they are referring to someone/thing that has just died. OMG!
Anyway, in the spirit of not spending the rest of my life dreading the fact that I am so super old from here on out, I decided I will do exactly what I should do and promise to “get shit done” before my next birthday. Without further adieu:
27 Things to do Before I Turn 28 – in no particular order whatsoever.

I’m based in Maryland, DC and Northern VA but don’t worry, I LOVE to travel.
I love me a new passport stamp.
