On Saturday, I celebrated my twenty-seventh birthday. I spent the day with friends, enjoying afternoon vintage shopping, cocktails, dinner, and birthday cake. I relished in every moment spent with my friends since this will be my last birthday in San Francisco until 2018. I signed a lease on an apartment in Ann Arbor over the weekend, and I will officially be starting a dual Phd program in Psychology and Women's Studies in the fall. Twenty-seven will be an exciting year of change and challenges, all of which I look forward to encountering.
