Happy Birthday to Me

So usually I wake up to a crowd of family throwing presents at me, or at least a sexy hairy man giving me another sort of birthday present, one that doesnt involve gift wrapping and ribbons, but today I woke up to Susie licking my nose and whining to go outside. The minute I stepped out of bed I slid on some pee that she so kindly left me right next to my bed side table.

I got to the kitchen and the birds started screetching for some attention and food, put on the kettle for myself, walked outside to see what Susie was up to and saw my mom driving up the driveway and it dawned on me:

I am 23 years old today. I have basically achieved my goals that I set for myself before I was 23. I have my own home. I have my own car. I pay my own bills. I am happy and satisfied with my life for the first time in forever.

I am me. And it feels good.
