So today is my 24th birthday. I know what you’re thinking- “Wow, you’re really 24? You look 16 to me!” Yes, I do look young. But knock it off- when I’m 40 I’ll look 25 and then who will be making fun of me? No one. Anyway, although the 24th birthday isn’t a monumental one, it’s still kind of a big deal. It’s another year older, another year out of college, and another year that brings me closer to true adulthood.
When people ask me my age, I always hesitate a bit. It’s like I almost forget how old I really am because I don’t FEEL this old. If you think about in terms of typical lifespans, I’m over 1/4 of the way done with my life. That’s crazy! Although I’ve accomplished a lot and made some great memories, there are still so many things I’ve yet to do in these 24 years.
So here’s to 24! What were your favorite memories of being 24? And if you haven’t hit that age yet, what are you looking forward to?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I’ll be 24 in July = )
Happy 24th Birthday. Enjoy your special day and have fun.
Happy Birthday Rachel!! I hope this is the best year yet– that’s my hope every year and it usually comes true in some way or another!
Happy birthday pretty lady! And I’m loving that you incorporated Jack into your bday post. And girl, 24 is YOUNG! Enjoy it! 🙂
thank you so much! haha I thought it would be funny
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL!!! Funny, yes, obviously you look young, but I would have thought you were actually older because of the maturity in your writing and posts. I hope you have a beyond fabulous birthday!
aw Jenny thank you so much- SUCH a nice compliment!
Happy Birthday! I love birthdays. Every single one should be special. I hope you have an awesome day! When I read that you were 24 I thought to myself – wow that’s so old… then I realized I turn 24 this year too! Have a great birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL!!!!!! 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful, fantastic, amazing day!!!!!! And how funny, our birthdays are close together too lol 😉 Now just move closer to Minnesota so we can hang out 🙂
Hmm…. best memories of 24? I definitely grew up a lot! Seriously it is crazy to me how each year out of college I get to be a bit more of an adult… getting a puppy at 24 also helped me grow up a bit…. RESPONSIBILITY outside of work responsibilities. I hope you have a wonderful year of being 24! 🙂
Thank you so much! How about YOU move closer to NY!? 🙂
happy happy birthday!!! hope you have the BEST day and the BEST year!!! I loved my 24th year!!
thank you so much!
Happy Birthday, Rachel!! Hope you have the best day. Favorite memory from being 24? Uhhh… you have it way more together than I did!
aw thanks Ashley!
Happy Birthday!! I always have people asking me what college I go to… nevermind the fact that I haven’t been in college in a few years! I like to think we’ll appreciate it down the road!
Glad I’m not alone! haha thank you!
Oh Jack Bauer. I love that show. Happy birthday!
Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
Happy birthday, Rachel! Hope it’s as fabulous as you are.
thank you Lauren 🙂
Happy Birthday! I always forget that I’m 23… I still want to say I’m 21 haha! Have a wonderful day!
Me too! Thank you!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & cheers to another year! Have a great day!! xoxo
thanks so much!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! That picture made me laugh ridiculously hard.
anyway, I’m dangerously close to my last month of being 24! It’s been an absolutely wonderful year- I moved in with Dean, got a dog, jumped on a few airplanes and went to new places….I hope you have an even more exciting year than I did!
haha I’m SO glad someone enjoyed the irony/stupid Photoshopping skills. Thanks so much!
Happy birthday! You’re a few months older than I am, but by the time I’m 24, I’m hoping to live on the other side of the country. 🙂 Hope your new year is equally as adventurous.
Ooh that sounds fun. Thanks!
Happy Birthday! Memories of being 24? That was a long time ago for me, although I do know I was still a student then.
Have an amazing day!
thank you so much !
Happy birthday!! Mine is coming up and I always dread it… not because I’m afraid of getting older, but birthdays always seem like a huge disappointment to me.. I EXPECT to be the Birthday Princess and it just never happens that way
But I TRULY hope you are the Birthday Princess today.. 24 is going to be great! 😀
Thanks so much! I totally understand what you’re saying, too!
Happy birthday pretty lady! 24 looks good on you! I agree. When people ask me how old I am I don’t really remember, sometimes I say 27, but I’m not 27 I’m 26 lol sometimes I say 25 too. I still get carded everywhere too and people think Im 16. Some time between 22 and now I stopped counting. So when you ask about my fav. memories of 24 I don’t remember, what year was that again? LOL. Probably my trip to Miami with my boyfriend. Any how, wishing you the best in everything that you do this year! Xo Inna
Thank you so much! I don’t think you look young enough to be carded- but it’s totally a good thing when you do 🙂
Happy Birthday! Every year after 24 has only gotten better to cheers to many more!
Aw thanks! I’m looking forward to it then!
Haha, it’s okay. I’m 22 and everyone thinks I’m 14. I’m still handed the kid’s menu at some restaurants. It’s wrong, but we’ll be rejoicing when we’re old and look half our age! Happy Birthday! 🙂
Glad I’m not alone! Thank you so much!
Happiest birthday, Rachel! Enjoy 24, because next year everyone younger than you will remind you that you are half way to 50.. which is where I am at haha!
Thank you Brittany! 🙂
Happy Birthday Rachel! Have a wonderful day!
Happy birthday, Rachel!! I now feel old compared to you, ha! I hope you have a wonderful birthday 🙂
I feel like a baby- and you are NOT old- stop! haha thank you so much!
Happy Birthday Rachel!! Can I just say that photo is HILARIOUS! Love it!! I know exactly how you feel. People can’t believe I’ve graduated college. They expect me to say I’m going into highschool! lol Definitely gonna love it when I’m 40. But now it’s kinda really annoying. Especially when the younger boys try to hit on you! hahah 😉
thank you so much 🙂 and I’m glad Im not alone on looking young!
Happy birthday girl! I’m coming up on 24 soon myself. I totally have the same problem – I look like a teenager and have people asking if I’m in high school all the time. I’m not sure that I’ll feel any different once I reach 24 but we’ll see. Enjoy!
thank you so much Stephanie! I don’t think you look young enough to be in high school- people are crazy!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I’m 24 too and I just felt weird. Like, wow, I’m getting up there ahaha.
Hope you have a fabulous birthday!
thank you so much!
Happy birthday, babe! Here’s to another fabulous year for you.
Oh my gosh you are going to make me cry Kristin- you are SO sweet. Thank you so much for the nice words and birthday wishes 🙂 Oh how I wish I just turned 21 like you 🙂
Happy Birthday Rachel!! 24 was a really fun year for me, hoping all the best for you!!
I already told you on Twitter, but I’m gonna tell you again…HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Honestly, when I was 24, I was focused on my boyfriend and decorating my new house. LOL…I’m still focused on one of those things.
Thank you SO much! 🙂
YAY! Happy Birthday lady!! I hope you have/had an amazing day and a great 24th year! 🙂 I know how you feel about not feeling as old as you are, I’m 25 and feel like I’m still waaaay young!!
thanks so much!
Happy Birthday!! And looking young is definitely a good thing! 🙂
thank you Lexi!
hope you had a wonderful birthday rachel!! hope 24 is a great year for you!
I’m 26, but I still get carded for R-rated movies, so I feel your pain. 😉
Memories of 24… I’m so old I can’t even remember 2 years ago. 😉 I celebrated in Downtown Huntington Beach – dinner and drinks and dancing. FUN!
Enjoy your special day. Actually, make it a week. ACTUALLY, make it a month! 🙂
thank you! You sound like your 24th was amazing! 🙂
Happy Birthday Rachel!! Enjoy 24!
thanks so much!
Happy Birthday to You!! Stay stunning, age is just a figure.
Happy belated birthday luvvy. You never really grow old. My birthday is in a few days and I still can’t believe how old I am compared to how old I feel. I will never forget my grandpa who at age 80 still spoke like he was still in his 50’s.
thank you! Happy early birthday to you as well!
