Oh yeah cos it IS my birthday (woot woot)
And by party I mean
HA, just kidding, I may in fact party a little bit but only after I go for an amazing birthday run and spend three hours talking to my sister and mum and dad and eat a lot of ice cream and PDA Curtis an embarrassing (for him) amount (I have no shame in being awkward) and give Bestie the biggest hug ever and reflect on being 25 😍 it is gonna be awesome.
(Side note: I said to my sister recently I was going to be half a century old… Awkward pause before she told me it is only a quarter of a century…maths is for realsies not my strong point).
(My birthday chair when I celebrated with my amazing family in NZ a few weeks ago).
On my birthday I love to reflect on where I was the previous year and get all deep about it (HA).
Last year I had just moved to Sydney a week earlier not knowing a single person. On my birthday I went for a run in my new neighborhood and got chased by a weird guy who obviously had never run in his life and almost passed out chasing me 😳
Bestie took me out for drinks and an amazing beach picnic and gave me a beautiful present even though we had just met (she is just that kind of person) and I knew in my heart we were destined for bestie-hood.
Curtis skyped me and my family called me but it definitely felt a little sad to be away from people I love so much.
This year I still miss my family beyond belief but I know I will talk to them and will see them soon and they will always be there for me even when I am in a different country. Curtis has just moved from Canada to Sydney to be with me and we are living in domestic bliss, Bestie and I have been through EVERYTHING together in the past year (including sharing a bed for six months, LOL) and she is beyond special to me, we also met our other adorable bestie Juliana and became the “wifey team” as our workmates call us, I adore my masters course and am over halfway through it (YAY) and I feel surrounded by people I love and so happy and lucky to have my life where it is right now.
(Love this photo cos it kinda looks like we have a halo which would be legit cos both those girls are angels)
Bring on 25, if it is half as amazing as 24 was then I am in for another awesome ride.
(Riding the ferris wheel yesterday to prepare).
Hope you all have a beautiful day and eat some ice cream and/or lollies for me!
What do you like to do on your birthday? I have the whole day off and feel very frivolous to not be cracking open my textbooks. I ALWAYS run on my birthday, I can’t even remember the last time I didn’t do that.
What did you do in your 25th year of life??
What awesome thing are you up to this weekend?
