let them eat cake.

February 10, 2014


Today i’m a quarter of a century old. I’ve already had a teensy freak out moment about being closer to thirty than I am to twenty. And I definitely thought i’d have my shit together by now.

It’s hard not to laugh when I think about my thirteen year old self making life plans. “I’m going to college, then i’ll get a job, and i’ll be married in my early twenties, so I can have children in my mid twenties.” Just like that. Everything was going to be so easy. At 25, i’m looking around thinking “I still have no idea what I actually want to do, dating is hard, and the thought of being responsible for another human right now is terrifying.” On top of the big life stuff, I eat ice cream (or cheese) for dinner at least one night a week, which is definitely not how i’d define ‘having your shit together.’

But, you know what? I’m happy. So, twenty five isn’t looking so bad.

Plus, I ate cake for breakfast.

    Happy birthday! I thought the same thing when I was thirteen, only I was more disillusioned and thought I would have it all together by 18. At least along the way I learned that no matter what age you are, you’re probably never going to feel like you’ve got your shit together. Unless, of course, you’re Beyonce.

    Having your shit together doesn’t mean the same thing for all people, all the time!! You have your shit together in the way that YOU need to right now maybe : ) Plus, you make it look really good. Happy birthday!

    I sometimes eat ice cream for breakfast by convincing myself it’s healthier than a donut, so… don’t feel bad. Hope you had a good one!
