So here's to being 22. Woah....? Yes, 22. For some reason, that number sounds infinitely larger than 21. 21 is like, "Yeah I'm 21, I'm young and fun and I can finally order a glass of wine at dinner and not potentially get arrested."
22 says, "I'm 22, so that means I'm almost done with college and that much closer to full adulthood."
And I still feel like I'm 16.
But...I have decided that, even though 22 is somehow this dreaded age for college students, I am going to embrace 22 with wide, open arms...and then I'm going to squeeze it and never let it go.
My roommate Amberleia and I were trying to come up with a "theme," if you will, for my birthday last night. It was sort of a joke, but in reality it's sort of not. She came up with wisdom, and even though we were being sarcastic about being older and wiser, I really do want that to be true. I want to appreciate God giving me yet another year of life, learning and experiencing and becoming increasingly wise as I make my way through it. So here's to wisdom: may it become abundantly more present in my life with each passing year.
Birthday celebration pictures are coming soon! Believe me...you won't want to miss the frittata I woke up to this morning.
