My 21st Birthday!

My 21st Birthday!

We age not by years, but by stories.

Hello world, don't worry I am still alive. There's really no excuse for my inconsistent blogging other then the fact that I have had a pretty crazy week. Last weekend I went home to pre-celebrate my birthday with my family and was super sick, so not that exciting. By the time it was Tuesday and my birthday finally came around I was feeling a lot better. It's honestly so weird because for the last four years like clock work I have been sick on my birthday, thankfully I was proactive about it this time and slept a lot and feel way better than I did last weekend. While I was home and we celebrated my birthday I had a vegan cheesecake and honestly it made my life, so good. Happy 21st birthday to me! I'm going to tell you guys where I've been and where my head is at and just catch you guys up on the last week of my life. 

Monday morning at 8 AM I had a test in one of my classes, but honestly I was just really happy that it was done and out of the way before my birthday. For my birthday on Tuesday I ended up going out to the bars with my friends and it was kind of low key but honestly just what I needed. I didn't pay for a single drink either because it was free because it was my birthday or my friends were buying them for me. So that should tell you a little bit about how my night went. I feel like for years before this there was always so much hype that was built up in anticipation to my 21st birthday but now that it's finally here and past, not much has changed. Other then the fact that I can now do everything I was already doing before and it's now legal. I'm super excited to go to Vegas sometime in the near future with some friends but nothings been planned yet but I'm sure it will happen this summer. In the mean time it's cool to be able to go to the bars, and have a drink at family dinners, and also not be the one friend in the group who isn't 21 is an added bonus. 

I'm also the worst daughter in the world because I didn't go home for Mother's Day. In my defense I was just home last weekend and being around all my cat's probably made me being sick a lot worse. I'll probably go home next weekend when I'm fully recovered and celebrate then. I have a whole book to read for one of my classes so in the mean time I'm keeping plenty busy. The end of the term is slowly approaching as this coming week is already week 7 of my 10 week term and my trip to Brazil is also slowly creeping up on me! I'm also finally all caught up on Grey's Anatomy and Scandal and oh my god if you aren't caught up you have to soon because it's amazing. 

I've been really happy lately, mostly cause I can't complain about the awesome life I have but also because the sun is out and I think I'm generally just a lot happier when it's nice and warm out and a lot more outdoor activities are happening. Also I'm really weird about things being different than usual and having like three of my classes canceled really threw me off all week! I also am off my shopping game and really need to do some online retail shopping to de-stress, don't judge. I really want to start consistently working out. I'm the worst when it comes to stuff like that, I get really into it and go every day and then I miss a couple days and lose all my progress and it's so frustrating! I really just need to make time to go every day even if it isn't for as long as I would like just to keep my body moving.

Sorry, what a rant this blog post has been but hopefully if you read this you are now more caught up with all my shenanigans and don't hate me as much for being the worst blogger ever. I do have some posts I've been working on so I'm super excited to  go back to being a consistent writer. I also got a new camera for my birthday so I'm going to be taking a lot more pictures and posting more original photography work and maybe some videos. I've decided I'm really not a fan of sitting down and talking to a camera but I do like filming and would be down to do like a fun vlog style video of a weekend or something when I go somewhere cool or do something fun! I like that a lot better because making a miniature movie of an experience is cool because then you can relive it later! So maybe something like that is a possibility for something I would make and upload in the future. I hope you all have had an amazing weekend and keep an eye out for new posts this week. 

XOXO Melinda
