It's my birthday!

So I officially made it to 26! So far, so good. This weekend I had a party at my apartment that was more fun than I've had in a long time. I'll post pictures soon.
I woke up this morning and went to the bathroom to shower. The first thing I noticed when I looked in the mirror is a line that has been creasing itself more and more on my forehead. Then I noticed lines etching around the sides of my mouth. I've decided I'm okay with wrinkles as long as they are from happy expressions like smiling and laughing. Despite the lines and the fact that I can't handle my liquor as well as I used to, I still feel young. I feel younger than I did when I was 23 and 24. I think those years I was stressed out. I got depressed easily. I let myself believe life was too hard and all my efforts to be happy would be fruitless. I know, those statements don't sound like they would come from me, but that is honestly how I felt for a long time. Now, my response to such thoughts is "fuck that! My life rocks!"
Happy birthday to me!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, indeed, woman! Keep fighting the good fight. We need someone holding down the Left Coast.
