All I want for my birthday 

Some days I get mistaken for 24, other days 34, but today, today I turn 29. Some days i fear getting old, but realize it is a privilege not granted to many. So thank you 20s, thank you for being the most formidable years of my life. I travelled the world and (finally) moved across the country. I graduated from undergrad, law school, and (inshallah) with my MPP in June. I had strangers become some of my closest friends and some of my closest friends become strangers. I loved, lusted, and will probably lust some more. I am stronger because of all these wonderful lessons and hope to do my last year of my twenties proud. #29andfeelingfine
