Editor's Note: 24 of My Favorite Articles That I've Written Before I Turned 24

While everyone else is out enjoying their American Independence Day cookouts, I'm in my pajamas doing a blog audit...while turning 24 and what not.

The "Jordan Year" (year 23) was a very transitional year, not only in accomplishments and lifestyle change, but also in mindset. I have learned so much about myself this year and the world around me. I was thinking about doing a "24 Things I Learned" post, but I felt that it would be more effective to evaluate my writing and see how I have grown.

Here is a curated list of post that I have written that I believe display my mission for Quirky, Brown Love as well as the transition in my writing.
