Today I am officially
At least I’m still on the underside of my mid-twenties, right?
Crap I’m getting old.
And I’m not just saying that because I want the 98% of my readers who are actually older than me to feel bad about themselves. That would be a terrible… wicked thing to do. [insert maniacal laugh here]
I feel old because there is so much I want to do and time goes by so fast. If I asked myself at 12 what I thought I would have accomplished by 24, I probably would have answered that I would be a bestselling author of at least a dozen horror novels and have already traveled around the world a thousand times over. Duh.
Okay, so to be fair, when I was 12 I was planning on being a writer when I “grew up,” and didn’t have the first clue as to what a graphic designer was. But still, I feel lame that I haven’t even attempted to write those novels yet and I’m practically almost 50.
I’ve done a lot of other awesome things though.
I’ve done a little bit of traveling here in the states. I’ve graduated from college and got myself a good job (all before the age of 20, thank you very much.) I’ve fallen in love with the man of my dreams and had my dream wedding. I’ve made some great friends. I’ve run my own handmade business, and I’ve also made some great internet friends.
I’m thinking my 12-year-old-self can suck it. Those novels can wait.
