Turning 26.

At exactly 12 AM, upon turning 26, I made a sort of “ceremonial” walk towards the beach. As I look up in the sky, I closed my eyes, took a deep breath of salty air and whispered a small promise to my self — I will chase whatever makes me happy. No matter what it takes, no matter the distance.

Happy birthday, self.
