Wasn’t I a cutie? What happened?!
Next week I’ll be turning 26, which is pretty surreal given I still listen to the same music I listened to when I was ten years younger, and my past times include reading comic books and blogging about my life on the Internet.
I haven’t quite hit that OMG NEARLY 30 WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE panic just yet (phew), but instead I have that OMG LIFE IS WHIZZING BY panic instead. I imagine my current state is almost like an introduction to the next one. We’ll see. But seriously, this year has gone by so fast I’m not sure what’s going on.
So my 26th birthday is next Wednesday, and will likely consist of a lovely little lie in, maybe some shopping with my Mum and then a meal with all the family and Liam. I find as you get to your mid-twenties that the less you do on your birthday the better. No more going out and getting hammered with your pals and feeling like hell the next day. Maybe a casual glass of wine with your meal and an early night. Bliss.
I do still have some plans lined up for the days following though. I was pretty smart and decided to book my birthday, and the next 2 days off work so I have 5 days off in a row to fill. Me and Liam have already planned a trip to London for the Crime Museum Uncovered exhibition on the Friday, and likely a trip to Forbidden Planet in Covent Garden too. The rest of the time off is a mystery for now, but I’m very much looking forward to it.
