Where to begin? There is so much to tell you! I’ll simply start by saying the journey to 30 has been interesting and I wouldn’t change it for world. I’ve learned so much, conquered many things and am who I am today because of this journey. I always get really weird about my birthday’s in general.

I knew I had two options, continue to go at each other’s throat, or refuse to allow my coworker to steal my happiness. I went with the latter. My supervisor viewed this as a sign of weakness and made it a point to let me know. I didn’t allow myself to remain upset at my supervisor, and I refused to waste another minute being bitter.
