Yup, its my 23rd birthday (and Im blogging for the first time in a month, obviously).

In my 22nd year I:

-got a new job. 2 actually, one at Starbucks and one at lululemon athletica. Starbucks sucked but I met one of my current best friends there, so Im so happy I worked there. I obviously can't say enough about my job at lululemon. It has been pretty lifechanging. Taught me the importance of goal setting, of intentional speaking, and about the amazing people in Halifax NS (I think I work, worked, with most of them).

-I got a promotion. Went from educator to Keyleader at lululemon. Yup, it really could get better.

-Ran half marathons #3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Five in one year. Thats pretty epic. They were the Bluenose in May 2010, Johnny Miles in July, Cobequid Trail half in August, PEI in October (with my sister!) and Hypothermic last month in February.

-Applied (and was rejected) to four medical schools. And guess what, its not going to end there. I will be doing the same this year.

-Moved from St. John's Newfoundland to Dartmouth N.S. and subsequently to Halifax. Recently signed the lease on a 2 bedroom Apt with my sister in Halifax. And yes, it is my dream apartment.

-Completed my first Sprint Triathlon. Which was amazing.

In my 23rd year, I will:

-Run my first marathon. The Bluenose marathon on May 22nd, 2011.

-Go to Calgary for the Stampede in July 2011 and to visit my cousin, Marie and amazing friend Mallary.

-Go to Toronto in October, to run the Toronto full or half marathon and visit my friend Melanie. If the NHL schedule co-operates with me, I will also see my first NHL game this same weekend.

-I will move in to my dream apartment June 10th, 2011.

-I will do an olympic distance triathlon by September 2011.

- I will apply, and get an interview to Dal Med school.

I will pretty much fall more and more in love with my life each and every day.
