Happy Birthday to ME!
So today is my birthday! Yes, It’s my “Golden Year” as they say, turning 23 on the 23rd! Woot woot! 23 years ago today I was born into this crazy, gruesome yet satisfying world. I’ve made it another year and I am pleased to say I’m proud! I’ve had my ups and downs just like everyone else, I might not go through the same exact things you have, I might not have felt the same pains you have felt. I do feel like I am at a part in my life where even though I walk a different path, I understand where you’re coming from. I have come a long way, if you look at how I used to be in high school etc.
A year ago today, I believe I was working for the Holiday Inn as a shuttle driver. I had a pretty flexible job but the environment wasn’t right for me. I also had who I’d thought at the time to be one of the best girlfriends ever! I didn’t really have much else going for me, I didn’t really hang out with friends, I didn’t go on any trips, I didn’t do anything! Then you look at where I am now though I may be single, 3months ago I bought a “new” car (2008), better than the one I was driving, I’ve kept a steady job that I got a permanent position in and I also enjoy very much and as of Monday (10/21) I moved into my first 2 bdrm apartment! My roommate is awesome I love her to death, I’m going to my first concert this weekend (Paramour)! I really don’t see how my path hasn’t been the right one for me, it’s great.
If you know me, you know that I never ask for presents. I never ask for anything really for my birthday. Any presents I do receive I always cherish them no matter how large or small it is, it means everything to me. I’m glad to have lived another year to celebrate the day I was born. I’m thankful that I am still alive today, some years ago, to be honest some months ago I wasn’t in the right state of mind and I actually believed it would be better if I wasn’t in this world any longer. I’m proud to say I no longer feel that way, I love my life and everyone in it. Thank you all for being a part of my life, and sticking with me if not for all for some of the 23 years I have lived. Here’s to 23 more years!
