Hey there.

Welcome to Quarter-Life Living, my outlet to help others bring style and sophistication to their twenty-something homes. Everyone deserves to love where they live, no matter the square footage.

26 IN 26

If you've been keeping up with the blog, then you have seen plenty of content revolved around my upcoming birthday. Sorry I'm not sorry - I love birthdays. One thing I have noticed in recent years, is that each year seems to go by faster and faster, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wishing I could slow life down sometimes. Psychologist William James studied this phenomenon for his text Principles of Psychology and concluded that time seems to speed up in adult life because we experience fewer "firsts" and milestones. Because of this, I've been pushing myself to try new things and seek new experiences.

So, without further ado, here are the 26 things I hope to do/see/eat/accomplish in my 26th year of life. 

1. Launch Quarter-Life Living ✔

2. Interview my grandparents

3. Eat a Belgian waffle in Brussels

4. Successfully run the Ragnar Relay

5. Swim in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland
