Good Morning World!
Today I am waking up a new woman, or indeed just the first time I’ve woken up and called myself something other than a girl. I am now 21 years old. AAAHHH! This is so crazy! Seems like a blink of an eye since I was saying hello to my teenage years and now, POOF I’m a proper adult. I’ve got to wave goodbye to my immaturity and start thinking about grown up things like a pension or a mortgage *shudders*.
I can say with great confidence that I am not ready to say goodbye to being 20, it really has been my favourite year so far! I know, I know! I’ve said this before, but I can’t possibly believe that it can get better than this (obviously I’m so up for it going in that direction), but what if it doesn’t?… Negativity aside, I have never enjoyed a year more and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
I think the biggest thing that has happened this past year is that I have now officially moved out, oh and I have a ring on my finger. Yes, this has come at a bit of a surprise. I have found the man of my dreams and we are now living together. I owe so much of this year to him and it really wouldn’t have been as special without him.
Friendships have definitely blossomed too, having an extra year under your belt at Univeristy really does make your confidence come out a little more (especially when you’re incredibly shy like myself). I have made some solid friendships, some of which I know will last a lifetime.
Here’s to taking responsibly for my actions! Here’s to proper adulthood! Here’s to no more excuses… Here’s to 21!
