Thoughts on Turning Twenty

 I'm not going to lie, I've been dreading July 11, 2013 for a long time. The day I turn 20 years old. The day that my age no longer starts with a 1 (Also the day when  I can't get a free slurpee from 711 for the first time in years due to work). I know age is just a number, but it's going to be weird to not officially be a teen anymore. Maybe I've been dreading this day because my 19th year has been so awesome, and I don't know if I'm ready for it to end. 19 has brought things that I never really thought possible. It has brought me the most long nights that ended when the sun came up and days during which I did things that I never thought I would do. I've always been so guarded and so afraid of everything, but this was a year where I was able to let go a bit.  I learned that when you let go and remember you're 19, a lot can happen.

I guess I could look at 20 as another year that will be even better than 19, though I tend to look at the glass half empty. Only time will tell,  but I know for sure that I'm not ready to stop being a teenager, even though my age now starts with a 2.

What I wore this weekend at my bday BBQ with family:

American Apparel overalls, H&M bikini, street vendor jelly sandals, unknown sunnies
