Missed the obligatory birthday post

So today is the first day I'm posting in over a month. I didn't even post on my birthday, nor have I really taken the time to reflect on what happened during the past year. 26 really flew by...

Let me pay tribute to 26 by listing some of the "firsts" I experienced before turning 27:

*Living in Manhattan for the first time gave me the following firsts:
  • First broker's fee
  • First encounter with a bug that actually made me shed tears out of fear
  • First exterminator visit
  • First Christmas Eve visit to the Rockefeller Center tree
  • First sojourn to Williamsburg and Washington Heights
  • First time trying on shoes that cost the same as my monthly rent
  • First time getting a bagel and coffee delivered
  • First time getting my laundry picked up and delivered
  • First time riding the NYC Bus
  • First Korean BBQ
  • First walk around the Reservoir and visit to the Guggenheim
  • First time attending a book signing
  • First second-hand clothing store purchase
*First (and second!) time being a bridesmaid in a best friend's wedding: First toast, first time planning a bachelorette party, first burlesque show, first time beat-boxing in public (don't ask).

*First visit to New Orleans: First time taking the stage at Stiletto, first time riding a mechanical bull, first steamboat ride.

*First time taking actual business trips- First time ever to Chicago, first time going to Orlando and Phoenix on my own, first room service order.

*Discovered the joys of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Absinthe, and Absolut Pears and Ruby Red, the Starbucks Double Shot on Ice, and private karaoke rooms with all-you-can-drink sake.

Is that it? Oh, and first time blogging.
