Just a 3 more days left as a 32 year old. 
This was one unprecedented year, that is for sure!
A fair mix of good, hard, and interesting all thrown into one calendar year. 
32 will be the year I:
- lived through a pandemic
- witnessed a historic election
- saw a new president and (female!) vice president get sworn in
- moved to a new state
- started a new job
- witnessed and experienced the miracle of science 
- found my first grey hair
- and so much more! 

I never saw any of that on tap a year ago when I turned 32. So who knows was this year will bring -- I'm ready for anything...well I can do without any more grey hairs....!
