Another Year Older and Only Slighly Crazier

Posted on

Today when I woke up I was no longer 22!

I had suddenly gone from being a 22 year old to being a 23 year old.

No more shall I sing 22 by Taylor swift.

I don’t know about you
But I’m feeling 22
Everything will be alright
If you keep me next to you
You don’t know about me
But I’ll bet you want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we’re
22, ooh-ooh
22, ooh-ooh

Not unless I change the lyrics a little. Think anyone would notice?

Raise your hand if you agree…

Well, since I can’t see any hands in the air from here I’ll assume y’all all agree.


It’s my birthday so, I can do that.


How my day has gone so far

My dad woke me up with a brownie on a plate with a candle stuck in it. (Sweet, right?)

And of course there was singing with my birthday brownie.


He gave me three movies, some candy and of course socks.

He wanted to give me something useful.


Then at church they made me stand up so that they could sing to me!

Would not have been so bad but, I’m in choir so I was at the very front of the church.

With everyone staring at me!


I turned bright red!


After church I met my dad and a couple of people at my favorite Mexican restaurant.

Somebody ratted me out and told a waiter that it was my birthday!

They stuck a hat on me and sang to me in Spanish.

Once again I was bright red!


Now, I’m just chilling out at home in my favorite chair typing up this Birthday post.

I have to say this Birthday has been a good one and it’s not even over.

I’ve been sung to three times.

Think there will be more?


23 things I’m thankful for
