my 22nd birthday

Last year, my birthday was eventful... I was able to legally drink, got wasted at a show and during the days following... I had a nice dinner with my family, a party at my apartment, went to Austin, got wasted on 6th street and then began my sleeve. This year, I opted to have a less exciting birthday. I woke up early, since I'm usually up early on wednesdays, I got donuts and cooked breakfast... complete with chocolate milk, maple bacon and biscuits! I then watched a little bit of scrubs, but then went back to sleep. After my glorious nap, I took a little time to clean up my apartment a little. I had dinner at my favorite restaurant with my family and finally made a real wish when I blew out my candles. I then decided to see one of my favorite books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, translated into film by myself. It was absolutely perfect and I'm glad that I went alone because I cried throughout the entire movie. I'm happy about myself and my life... it's so weird to see how differently my life is now as apposed to last year. I was such a completely different person back then, I didn't even know who I was.  I made a list of 21 things I wanted to do before I was 22 years old... I completed 9 of the goals I made. I have a really good feeling about this year! So, here's my new list...
