Did you ever get cash for your birthday growing up? You know, the kind of gift where you get exactly as many dollars as years you are old? I used to, but magically that seemed to stop after 21 and I started getting giftcards or household items – but as I am trying to say I’m an adult without feeling like an impostor, I think I prefer the latter now.
It’s my birthday, guys! That’s right – I’m 24 today. I felt like I was still scraping by as a fresh-faced college graduate at 23, but at 24 I think I have to accept that I’m a real adult today. Or, at least, I’m trying to be one.
When I was growing up, I always used to think that there’s no way I would make it to being an adult. Not that I thought I was going to die or anything, but that I simply couldn’t put it in my brain that I was going to be living on my own, working at least one Real Job, and making my way in the world. I still can’t believe it most of the time, even though I’m literally living that now. Every day is a surprise to me that I’ve made it this far, and I’ll take this moment to pat myself on the back. You should, too, because every new day is a day you didn’t expect and a day that you should be proud of.
Anyway, what I’m saying here is that while I’m out celebrating this wonderful day, you should be celebrating me, too. I mean, what’s a birthday if not a day that you get to celebrate yourself? I never said this wasn’t a narcissism blog, but I’m really putting it out there today.
In celebration of me, I’m giving away a $24 virtual giftcard to my Etsy store!
Each of these nets you one entry:
- Comment here!
