Last week, a few good friends and I went to a cocktail bar for a last good night out before our exam stress sets in. You probably known them: that group of young teenage boys occupying more seats than there are group members, while other people in the venue are standing. They were teasing a group of young girls when I tried my own luck getting a chair. Their reaction made me feel a little unsure about myself. One of them immediately jumped up, apologised and handed me an empty chair while saying “here you go madam”. Madam!? 22 is only… 6 years older then they were. Oh boy!
Today I celebrate my 22nd birthday. The “horrorscope” in a magazine predicted I’d be kissing 10 people today, but I can assure you that my friends made sure I went well over that number, haha. Veronique brought a mini-cherry pie to class and Joke gave me Mentos candy. After class we went for coffee, and I ran into two fellow bloggers at our lunch spot. K took me out for Nando’s en frozen yoghurt and now we’re being lazy on the couch watching a random gardening program. It was a good day, despite the rain that forced me to switch from my birthday dress into jeans.
Last year on my birthday I wrote about the wishes I had for my 22nd year on this planet. I personally love reading retrospective posts and see how people go about their goals, so I though it would be fun to write about my own year today. Let’s see how I did!
“For the next year I mostly hope to graduate from college and decide what I want to study for my Masters. I hope to travel even more, maybe to northern Italy, southern Spain or Scotland but preferably to all. I am still doubting whether I should go to Canterbury or not and I really, really should get back into blogging. Like… really.”
