#boyerbirthday: Digital Journalist Lauren Boyer (me) turns 24

  1. The only way, I figured, to #partylikeajournalist, was to live-tweet the ongoings of my 24th birthday party last weekend. Below are the events that transpired as I entered my mid-20s.

    Obligatory Foursquare check-in.

  31. The day after my birthday, I found out something awesome: Drinks cause me to forget entire encounters, evidently.
  32. Share
