Yesterday was my 22nd birthday. So many things have been going on in the past month that it kind of snuck up on me this year. The past twelve months have brought a lot of changes and challenges. Obviously, going from student to college graduate and job seeker is quite the life jolt, but we also threw in a move to one of the largest cities in the United States. As we continue to settle-in, I decided it was time to test myself (again) and get a plant.
A few summers ago, I optimistically purchased a small pot and plant and that ended tragically when I unintentionally neglected it for weeks (in the Texas heat no less) and then added the final straw by over-watering it in attempt to bring it from the brink of death. No such luck.
This time I bought some hard-to-kill succulents and they make me very happy.
So, here’s to another year and to my new plants. Wish them luck, people.
