I know, not much of an introduction. In fact *squints* IS that even an introduction? Nope. Not really.
And, if you couldn't tell from those first few sentences...
I AM ACTUALLY REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS DAY AND AM HAVING A VEEEEEEEEEEERY HARD TIME HOLDING IT ALL IN!!!!!!!!!!
|Pink...just for the guy bloggers out there. ;)|
Thank goodness you can't hear me. XD
After looking back...WAAAAAAAAAAAAY back to my seventeen-year-old birthday post, I realized that now...I am officially old. *cries* WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE TO GROW UP? (Age wise. I'm all for maturity. :P)
Here are some goals for my eighteenth year:
1: Grow closer to my Lord and Savior
2: Self-publish "The Princess & I" as well as "Alice & Alyssa" and possibly a volume of poetry(?)
3: Make new friends
4: Make a ton of awesome blog posts ;)
5: Start college (gulp)
For fun, I thought I'd give you some of our family quirks when it comes to birthdays:
1: The birthday child does NOT get out of work or school on their special day. (Except if you are lucky enough to have a summer birthday, then you don't have to do school. ;)
2: Those who have a birthday are given a special gift from their parents in the morning.
3: Often, we have a small competition to see who can say "Happy Birthday" to the growing child first.
4: NO special breakfasts or lunches...although sometimes we are able to choose a dinner.
5: The sibling closest to you in age (that's older than you) usually says something along the lines of "Ahhhh, yes I remember that year..."
6: SOMETIMES we get to sleep in.
And here are a few things I've discovered about getting a year older:
-I don't ever FEEL a year older
-Time really DOES seem to go by faster
-I will continue calling myself "seventeen" until about three months before turning nineteen. ;)
-It's more startling to realize one of your siblings had a birthday than to have one myself
-Characters I create get older as I do
-Life only gets busier
-God only gets more wonderful
-It gets tempting to become cynical about life, BUT I WILL PREVAIL
Any questions you want to ply me with?
Before I go, here's a verse that has become my theme verse for life:
