A few days ago, I was looking over some form or something I had to fill out and I saw my age had been automatically filled in when I entered in my birth date.  26.  Wait, that's wrong, I immediately thought, it should say 27.  It took me a second to realize that 26 is right.  I'm 26.  I've just had 27 on the brain a lot lately.  My birthday is next month.  Those that know me might assume that I am bringing this up as a friendly reminder that my birthday is coming quickly, it is December 23rd, and perhaps you should start thinking about it.  How dare you?  But just for the record, my holiday/birthday gift guide from last year still largely stands and I have been a very good girl this year, with the exception of last weekend, which we are still not discussing.

Typically, it takes me a while to resign myself to the next number coming, but this time, I already feel 27.  I have a good feeling about my 27th year.  A really good feeling.  Everything is finally going to click and my grown-up life is going to start coming together in a way I've been working towards for a long time.  Law school graduation means starting a career and not just having a job.  It means settling into being the person I'm supposed to be.  It means being done with school forever.  No more taking out loans and wondering where my next check is going to come from and having to ask my parents for help.  It means I get to stop wondering what I'm going to do next and how I'm going to do it and just start doing.

Let's hope I'm not jinxing it by talking about it.  I'm just so ready for everything 27 is going to bring.  I can't wait for it to get here.

We were in Manhattan and went to Hard Rock for your 21st birthday. So young, so ignorant!

Would you mind crossing off anything from your 2009 list that you received an would not like duplicates of? Thanks!

I just scheduled a court date on your birthday. Consider it my gift to you! Also, are you a Capricorn too?

Christina said...

Yep, Capricorn, by like a day I think.
