(tried eight beers and hated them all happy twenty-first to me)
Today I am twenty-one years old. I have no idea where the time has gone. This is such a monumental birthday you look forward to since day you knew what the number twenty-one was. But as this day approaches I have been feeling scared and anxious. I have literally waited for this day and now it is finally here and I do not know what to do. Turning twenty-one doesn’t just mean I get to drink. During my year of being twenty-one I get to spend part of my summer studying abroad. After studying abroad, I go back to Houston to look for a “real job”… No, HRM doesn’t count nannying as a real job so I have to get one for class credit. This is also the year I start my senior year of college. Then within this year I have to look and interview for my big girl job (and hopefully get hired lol). Then to top it all off, within this year I will graduate Alpha Chi Omega and the University of Houston.
This is going to be the biggest and hopefully most rewarding year of my life. It is hard to believe where the time had gone. I remember just yesterday being in Catholic School and wanting to switch to public school in second grade so I could ride the big yellow school bus to school… lol yes true story. What happened to those days where my biggest concern was getting to ride on a school bus!? I wish that was my only worry now. Being (or trying to be) an adult is hard. When I post my funny memes on Facebook about not wanting to adult, I am serious. The big world ahead of me is scary. Yes, it can be so rewarding to adult but with that comes a greater deal of responsibility. I find myself to be very responsible. I make good grades, I work 40+ hours a week, I have a social life and I always make time for my friends and family.
P.S. Who knew I would make it this far!?! lol. Here’s some pics over my twenty-one years of life.
