My 25th Birthday

My 25th Birthday

This day and age people tend to put a great deal of emphasis on their 25th birthday. On this momentous occasion, us so-called ‘millennials’ take a moment to reflect on our lives and - based on the countless Facebook postings I’ve seen - go through a complete mental breakdown.

Quarter Century Reflections

It’s that time of year again, I have successfully managed to orbit the sun without perishing and I am yet another year older.
