As I get ready to enter my 24th year (Saturday is my birthday, woah!) I thought I’d share a few things about myself with you all. In numbers form. I like numbers, numbers are solid.
So, I am 8763 days old. Or 210,326 minutes old. Or 23 years, 11 Months, and 29 days old.
I’ve lived in Chicago for 5 months.
It’s been 5 years since I’ve experienced a real winter.
I work 40 hours per week (officially)
I work at least 20 more hours per week in reality. (Glamorous teacher life!)
