I AM 18. OMG. I'M LEGAL. IM ADULT. I CAN VOTE. SOMEBODY HOLD ME. YAY FOR BIRTHDAYS.
So, I've FINALLY turned 18. For so long this age seemed like such a distant worry. I almost thought being "legal" was a myth, but here I am. 2013 has been good to me, and it feels awesome to close it the way I am. I'm legal.
I had a lovely dinner with my "day one" friends, and family and had cheesecake instead of birthday cake, because cheesecake is heaven.
Tonight was one of those nights that had me reflecting again on life. It's crazy to be legal, and be 18 but tonight also made me hugely grateful for the people in my life. We have had our ups and down but these people have been by my side now for more than a decade. That's insane, and it's amazing they've put up with me this long. Even through moving away for school, and everything.
I especially got emotional and teary when my friend made me this montage of us for my birthday, which means more to me than anything she could've bought.
Anyways, to sum up my cheeseball of a reflective soppy post I'm finally 18, and had a pretty amazing night. I'm just feeling very grateful, but I guess that's what this season does.
So for anyone reading this who may be feeling down, just take a moment and reflect on what's good in your life and I'm sure you'll feel a lot better. Remember someone loves you, someone cares, and you're very important to this world. (& me, but I don't wanna be creepy.)
