Happy Birthday to Me

Well, it's official. As of 6:17am this morning I am in my mid 20's. Yes, I am "quarter of a century and more than half as hold as (my dad)" according to the text message I got from him this morning. I'm not quite sure how I feel. I mean sure, I'm looking forward to my birthday dinner at BD's Mongolian BBQ tonight. And I'm happy that I managed to survive another year of crazy- because life wouldn't be very much fun if it wasn't. But at the same time it is bittersweet. I think it is probably safe to say that I am an adult now, not necessarily by choice but the age doesn't lie. But then again age is just a number too right?

Gone are the days where I can stay out all night drinking and partying on campus. Well, I probably could but then I wouldn't be going to work the next day or the day after that. So long to the days of not much responsibility and the freedom to do pretty much whatever I wanted. I've got bills to pay, a husband to keep, and a new phase of life to begin. Perhaps that is a bit of a thrill. I don't know where I'll be in 3 years, other than 28 and almost to a mid life crisis probably. No in all honesty, turning 25 can't really be a bad thing at all. I'm still young, I've still got my spunk and personality and most importantly I'm happy. I know they say that once you hit 30 you are fully comfortable with yourself and know who you are, well if that's the case then I'll consider myself about half way there and use the next 5 years to just be me. Whoever that is.

I mean hey, at least I'm going to save a bunch of money on my car insurance now :) and I didn't switch to Geico to get it.

So here's to 25, I'll raise my glass to that!
