A list of firsts (this has been in drafts for like a month, inspired to post it by @nikole and @lstblkgrl)
  1. First airplane ride: Florida, 1993
    I don't remember it but I heard when we went to Disney world I really liked the Dumbo ride but would only ride in the blue one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. First school bus ride: 6th grade
    I was lucky enough to walk to school from K-5th. The bus was the worst.
  3. First "I love you": July 4, 2014
  4. First kiss: age 15, date unknown
    In a church basement during a weekend long event called CON. Because locking 200 horny teens in a church for an entire weekend wouldn't end in this kind of thing? (It happened more often than it didn't) I was a sophomore he was a senior 💁🏼 (also I feel like this is old for a first kiss don't judge me I was a late bloomer)
  5. First car: December, 2010
    Purchased a new 2011 Mazda3 with my savings bonds from my grandparents junior year of college.
  6. First publicly taught yoga class: January 28, 2016
  7. First tattoo: April, 2010
    Exact date unknown but it popped up on timehop so it was around this time
  8. First grade teacher: Miss Greenblatt
    She'll always remember us because we were her first teaching gig. It's crazy to think now that she was only in her early 20s like probably younger than I am now?? She seemed so old at the time?? Age is tricky thing.
  9. First pet: August 26, 2011
    My little rue boo weighed 1 lb when I adopted her at 4 months old 😻
  10. First full time, real adult job: September 16, 2013
    Thanks for the memories PwC.
  11. Had to
  12. First concert: 2006
    Should be embarrassed that it was Fall Out Boy/All American Rejects, but it was cool because it was at the same venue where the Chicago WNBA played and my dad worked for them at the time, so 1) we got in for free and 2) my dad knew the caterer, so we got to eat dinner back stage with the bands. Angsty teen Leah was in heaven, let me tell you.
  13. First international trip: Bahamas 2002
    It was shortly after the Mary Kate and Ashley movie came out where they went to the Atlantis and you can't imagine how excited I was to go down the same slides as them. Seriously.
  14. First dream/nightmare I remember
    We had a dog when I was little. I dreamt she was sitting on the stairs and was constantly changing animals (like flashing between species from horse to elephant etc). When she turned into a gorilla, I took her hand and walked her out our front door. I was around 4 or 5.
