In my 27th year I SURE LEARNED A LOT. I learned to take care of my teeth and my finances and a thing or two about love. I lived out of a suitcase, took a LOT of plane-rides, drove across country, edited a magazine, hunkered down with my family, and lost one of my two dads. The thing about adversity is that it really shifts perspective—today I'm stoked on warm sunshine and my sweet puppy and good health. Cliche, no? Also I got this great poloroid camera for my birthday... so!
