So before ya’ll designate me as “extra” for celebrating my birthday all month long, I just want to let you know that I’m turning 25. That’s right- it’s a milestone year. I’m a quarter of a century old! And I’m a year from being kicked of my mom’s insurance, and I really should be in a Master’s Program by now, and….. I’m gonna stop there.
I’m just excited to hit another year, ok? My mental health has never been the best and I convinced myself several times that I wouldn’t make it to blowing out 25 candles. BUT HERE I AM! 19 DAYS TO GO! And even though my mood still roller coasters, I think I’m in a fairly decent place at the moment. I may not be doing anything to propel me professionally, but I have gotten back into crocheting and writing a lot more. Things are getting checked off my to-do list. My apartment is usually clean and I’ve been good about preventing clutter. My boyfriend and I are committing to a new gym routine this week. That’s good adulting, right?
While I wish I had the salary to truly celebrate a birthday month, I will be doing a little more “treat yo self” things this month. This morning, I decided to finally invest in a premium membership on WordPress. Did you notice the new domain name? All sparkly, new, and without the .wordpress.com! This blog has helped to lift my mood a lot this year, so I thought I’d finally invest a little more into it.
Later this month, I’ll be hosting a small party with some friends. Fingers are crossed for an escape room, but I may brave Main Event. I don’t really have a lot planned for “Birthday Month”, but I’m gonna focus more on living in the moment, being grateful for what I have instead of worrying about what I don’t, and all that cliche stuff. I also have a few face masks tucked away in my bathroom and some wine to enjoy. 😉 I’ll be doing some small stuff for ya’ll too, so that you can enjoy the celebration from wherever you are. Just make sure to watch the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates.
I’m hoping to treat ya’ll to another blog post later this week. There’s a creature currently wriggling around my living room, born from a desire to go back and try an old pattern again. So far it’s looking better than my first attempt.
Until then, I hope everyone has a great week! What are you celebrating today/ this week/ this month?
