It's My Birthday and I Can Ramble If I Want To

Ahh I need to stop ignoring my blog. I’m going to try and be better about it this year. I have a feeling that some big stuff is going to happen this year, or at least I hope something happens, so I better keep track.

Yesterday was my 24th birthday. Twenty four is kind of a boring age to become. The excitement of turning 18 or 21 is long gone and all we have to look forward to is turn 25 so we can rent a car on our own and have lower insurance rates. Lots of people talk about how they aren’t where they thought they would be when they turn another year older. I guess I don’t have that problem because I had no plans for where I should be at 24. I’m very happy where I am, for the moment. I have a good job that is close to my family and friends. I have a boyfriend who exceeds every thought I even had of what a significant other should be. And more importantly makes me laugh every day. I have plans for the future and a general idea of how to get there. Over all I’m happy to report I’m happy.

Now I don’t mean this in a bragging way by any means. I’m confused and scared and worry that I won’t amount to anything as much as the next person. I think the few years right after college are the most confusing. Up until now we have had our lives mapped out for us. We went to school so we could get into college. We went to college so we could get a job. After you graduate though you are on your own to pick and choose what comes next and hope that it works out for the best. I figure it’s normal to be unsure of how to proceed in life at this age so I’m not going to worry about it too much.

On a much lighter note, I find that it’s the small things in life that can really make your day. They don’t have to be any significant, but something that makes you happy. Today my small thing was getting a cupcake from Cupcake with my mom after lunch. I’m not a fan of cake really, I’m more of a cheesecake kind of girl myself, but these cupcakes are out of this world. If you haven’t tried them do it NOW! Andy and I would get them as a treat every so often in Charleston but now they have opened a store in Columbia and my indifference to cake is going straight out the window. We had a Chocolate Peanut Butter and a Chocolate Tuxedo cupcake and they were fabulous. I little cup of heaven. Go do something that makes you smile.

Currently I’m reading: Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. It is the sequel to the Nanny Diaries and it’s pretty cute so far. I just finished Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews which was wonderful. I didn’t want it to end. It was completely frivolous and Southern and is the definition of a perfect beach book. I highly recommend it.
