I am an aged fool.

Yesterday was my 21st birthday!

I usually don't do very much for my birthday. Not since I've moved away from home, anyways. Generally because its right at the beginning of the new school year, right after new people move into an apartment, and no one knows anyone's birthday yet or really knows enough about them to feel comfortable getting excited about it.

This year, I've lived with 2 of my roommates already for well over a year, and I was also in town all summer, so I still have a lot of amigos in the vicinity. So after work and class yesterday, A group of us went to Olive Garden, where I was treated to food. And you know how much I do love food. My 2 best friends were also in attendance, so of course it was bound to be a good evening.

Afterwards, we were just sitting in my apartment relaxing, and suddenly many people started showing up at my door just to say Happy Birthday and give their well wishes. Seriously... Like, ten people randomly knocked on my door. I seriously had no idea that so many people cared enough about me to go out of their way to see me on my birthday. And thats not even including the many text messages from friends and family across the country that littered my cell phone inbox.

No really. My mind = blown.

Overall, it was a truly stupendous birthday, and it has made me grateful for all the love and care that I can see present in my lie through other people. I can't adequately express how grateful I am for my friends and family. They are each and every one amazing and wonderful.

Oh, and I got my hair cut. Woo woo.

Over and out.
