The 25 Project

The day before my 25th birthday, struck with thoughts of the past and the inevitable future, the idea to start the project came: What if I documented each day of my 25th year in a journal, so at the end of it, I would have 365 entries to look back on?
"The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been." - Madeleine L'Engle
The 25 Project is this journal. It works like this: Each day I write in a physical notebook and record my daily thoughts, dreams and goals. Then I take select snippets of those daily entries and publish them on this blog.

"My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the heck she is." - Ellen DeGeneres
I might post every day, or only every so often. The project could be ever-evolving, or never-evolving. I really don't know yet, and that's the fun part. This blog is just for me, but you are welcome to follow along, and share your own thoughts as we go.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Hi, Erin! I have a project 23 (, similar to yours with fewer updates and more reflection. I love the way I get a sense of you from just a sentence or two and am so excited to have found another twenty-something blogger. I look forward to following along!

    1. Hi Casey! That is so cool! I'll definitely be following your Project 23. Seriously so awesome that you are also embarking on a year of reflection and blogging. Thanks so much for reaching out! :)
