I’m A Big Kid Now

I turned 21 today. So, l guess that makes me more of an adult than a big kid, huh?

I don’t feel like an adult and l don’t really think l want to be an adult even though l’ve had the adult responsibilities for quite a few years now. I have been able to get myself to go to school full-time, l have a full-time job, l stay out of trouble, and (my personal favorite) l have bills. I’m cheap; l’ll admit that. But when you’re paying for school out of your own pocket and have other bills to pay, it helps to be extremely careful with money.

So, l am an adult. Mentally, however, is a different story.

For my birthday l got Disney puzzles, Disney movies, Ninja Turtle episodes and a video game, and the two Hobbit movies and the Lego Hobbit video game. I also got a pretty bag from Thirty-One for work and also a book on Forensics for research for Detective Florence. Yes, l am officially an adult.

21 is one of those “milestone” birthdays. I can officially drink now that l’m an adult. Of course, that doesn’t really excite me.

A lot of people asked what l was doing today (mainly asking what l was going to get for my first drink) and l told them all the same thing: nothing.

I stayed home all day today and got a lot of editing done on Detective Florence. It was great. School starts on Wednesday so l know l’m not going to have a lot of time to write and/or edit. So today and tomorrow needs to be spent getting as much done as l can.

Most people have a big birthday bash for their 21st, but l prefer low key. My mom’s side of the family came over to celebrate yesterday. My parents, sister, and l are going out to dinner Thursday night.

It was a good day. Needless to say, I’m more than happy.

Spilled Ink hit a milestone the other day! After blogging for almost two years, Spilled Ink is up to 1,000 followers. Thank you everyone who have made this possible! I’ll keep this short and sweet, so…

Through the years I have been nominated for many awards, have been re-blogged, and have made many WordPress friends. It’s so much fun sharing my adventures in writing and life with all of you and I’m glad 1,000 of you have enjoyed reading about my adventures and deemed my blog good enough to come back for more.

Adding a “thank you” picture to this post is the least I could do for all the feedback, advice, and friendship I have received from all of you.

I hope everyone is doing well with their writing, their blogs, and life in general. Thanks again! 🙂
