still twenty today!

it's been very hard to blog these days. sorry!

a flurry of lessons, driving and 21st birthday parties, and it's only been 3 weeks into the first month of the year. there's not even time to study (haha yeah, right) or reflect on and verbalise the significance of this Event of stepping out of those kiddy sneakers into a more grownup pair of pumps or something beautiful but painful to wear. i know really should though. after all, once past 21, no one throws big birthday bashes and all the girls start worrying about sagging. and boys about balding. hoho.

it probably isn't surprising that i don't feel 21. but i feel old, more so because the numbers on my birth certificate don't correspond with my feeling. if only i could be the age i look! haha i just had to say that, it's probably going to be the last time i'll get to say such things. wait till the sagging starts. sorry about that, i just read somewhere that once past a certain unmentionable age, gravity kicks in with a vengeance and that's where the companies selling supportive goods make tonnes of money.

birthdays may not mean much, an arbitrary date set just so that we may get presents and eat cake (both of which i wholeheartedly welcome) but their being there can serve to remind us of the milestones in life, what youth we've wasted/used to the max, and how many more years we have left. but seriously, it is quite liberating to be considered a real adult although i'll never be able to reason with my parents about that, at least it says so on paper that i am =p other than that, i'm rather happy; just received my first presents (the pre-birthday samans from rose-abin-kenrick is so not counted) from my dearest friends jo and yun. and happy also because it's always better to be happy!

it really is quite thrilling. right now, being as old as i'll ever be
i have a feeling it's going to be a fun ride :)
