Today is my 23rd Birthday

And though there’s not much for me to say today, I thank God for making it this far. I am alive, I am happy, I am grateful. Years pass and some are great, some not so much.

The days go by and I’m not getting any younger

Tomorrow is my birthday. Mentally, I am preparing to have a wonderful day as I physically work the rest of my hours tonight at my job.

I’m having a mid-mid-life crisis. I’m just more emotional these days than usual and I can’t tell if it’s theContinue reading “Take me back to 2017”

Written June 26th, the day I was born 20 years ago.

Today’s my 20th birthday And I feel like I’m having a fucking heart attack. Not because of my birthday, but just because the littlest of things have been giving me anxiety lately. I slept for only 4 hours last night and I feel like I’m running on E. All the plans I had set forContinue reading “Written June 26th, the day I was born 20 years ago.”
