My 27th birthday was back on the 15th of May, and with the Stay-At-Home Order presents I got for myself, and ones that my friends in other states sent me were a bit delayed. So, I waited until they all arrived before making this post. Normally I don’t share this type of thing on my blog but I’m sort of at a point in my life where I’m not in the mood to review makeup anyone on a regular basis just if it’s something that it completely brand new (still love makeup, and will continue to post on my Instagram looks I’ve done), and I have basically only been playing Animal Crossing. So, I don’t really have anything to share from that… that I haven’t already shared on the blog. So, instead I’m focusing on books as I love reading. Have since I was fourteen or fifteen years old.
This past week included my 25th birthday. And let’s just say after a year of restraining myself from getting anything for myself… I went a little overboard since I didn’t have to pay rent anywhere this month. So I got myself a new bed spread, a tank top that is the bomb dot com, some makeup from my wishlist, and a new tattoo. I also was on call (working) all week during my birthday week…
Though my mom wasn’t the greatest of taking individual pictures of me growing up as my sister literally refused to leave my side, the one thing she always made sure of was that she took photos every year on my birthday. Or around my birthday rather when I had my hair freshly cut/styled and in an outfit that summed up my year. Either a favorite outfit I loved wearing or something new, and I got a say in what I wanted my birthday picture outfit to be. Some of them were taken at my birthday party and others were just around the house. She did this every year until I turned 18 and she still has the photos hanging up in her bedroom next to my sister’s. So seeing as today is my 24th birthday, I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane.
This month I’m turning 24, originally I was thinking about doing an entire week decided to birthdays, but I’m honestly not feeling inspired to do that anymore and can’t think of even posts that I would honestly want to write/read. So instead I’m just going to do a few of them and just other “Growing Up” topics throughout the month of May. So today is all about things that everyone in their early 20s should know about to some level.
Today is my birthday! I have made it to level 23 of life. I have beat the mushroom kingdom, made it past the underwater levels and the desert level, and now I’m onto the lava levels. Or something like that. My birthday in years past have been a combination of horrible luck to great luck. Five years ago my Grandpa died a week before my birthday, the year after my dog of fifteen years died two days after my birthday, two years ago I got a full time job in the IT field, and last year I got promoted. So this year, I was wondering what type of luck I would have. So far, I’m still not sure.
