You're wonderful, your bloom is on, and you're about to discover a whole new world inside of you.I feel like you're more apt to take risks without going back and forth about what you want, because you what you want.You've had the experience where you've tried stuff — or know what it's like to skip certain things and regret them.A few months ago, my little sister started her few-months-to-30 countdown on Facebook.
