First Official Blog of Mine:
So it’s my birthday tomorrow, in case you were wondering. The big 1-6! And to be quite honest, I’m genuinely excited. Usually it’s not that big a deal to me; yeah it’s a special day for the birthday girl, but other than that not so different. But SIXTEEN? That’s a milestone. Not just because of the license thing - although I am pretty excited about that - but because it’s the first age I think of when I think of teenagery. And it’s probably the age I think of because of all the propaganda surrounding it. There’s movies, TV shows, and songs dedicated to celebrating this age. And why not? I’m (un)officially and adult now. I can apply for an array of minimum wage jobs, drive without an adult, volunteer at the animal shelter. It’s been a long time coming, in my opinion, reaching 16. Yeah, yeah, I shouldn’t wish my life away, but at this age I gain freedom, respect, and rights! Until now, it’s been like I wasn’t living up to all the teenagerness associated with my young adulthood. Tomorrow, I begin my true journey as a teenager. Don’t think I’m all about “being 16,” because after tomorrow there’s a good chance I won’t think much about it. And I may be able to drive, but that doesn’t mean I’m getting a brand new BMW that Daddy bought me on his Mastercard. Along with my freedom comes a whole heck of a lot of responsibility. But that’s great too; a new area of maturity that everyone has to face sooner or later. All I’m saying is that I’m excited to reach this ideal, unexplored age and reap all its benefits.
