25: my twenty-something life

Posted in Uncategorized by Diana on February 15, 2010

My sentiments stepping out of 24:

You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place…like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.

— Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books

February 10th – birthday eve:

  • dinner/reunion with study abroad friends

My warm embrace with 25:

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.

– Coco Chanel

February 11th – my 25th birthday, official member of the Quarter Century Club:

  • woke up to sweet noodles and birthday card from my mom
  • flooded with birthday greetings via all forms of communication throughout the day and night
  • Downtown LA’s Art Walk with family and friends from high school, college, DC and LA. Located in the heart of Los Angeles + art (Prison Inc at Crewest, naked bodies, paintings) + live music (DJs and bands) + culture + new adventures (trying to get to the rooftop) + food trucks (The Grilled Cheese Truck, recommend Cheesy Mac and Rib!) + running into old classmates + buying art (hooray for my birthday discount) + dancing at Kiss and Tell at Seven = a night filled with new experiences and so much happiness. Bonus: My feet didn’t hurt after 5 straight hours of walking and dancing in heels around DTLA!
  • coming home to birthday mail
  • not wanting to wash up for bed, turn off the lights, or close my eyes and fall asleep because reality is exponentially better than my dreams

February 12th – night in, night out:

  • home-cooked dinner at home with family and friends
  • Wonderland in Hollywood

I love my life. I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. I’m not terrified anymore of the change that comes with the next chapter of my life. I’m happy. I’m excited. I’m ecstatic. I’m the luckiest gal in the world.
