Happy birthday to me.
My brain is turning inside out with the realization that it's just after midnight, and I am now 30 years old. What am I doing with this new day--this new year? Well, I'm listening to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on RiffTrax playing as I write this. Yep. I lead an exciting life.
In all honesty, I am having a really hard time processing the reality of being 30. I know it won't sink for awhile, but hopefully I'll make this new year a good one.
I think my birthday gift to myself with be going back to school. I don't know the exact when and how, so don't ask. I just think I need to make myself do it. I'm getting stagnant living the life I'm currently in. I am a shark, I gotta keep swimming or I'll die.
Outside of that, I have no idea. I am going to try to keep myself going to the gym, and maybe try to get myself a passport finally, but one thing at a time.
Maybe 30 doesn't have to be scary. Or maybe it is meant to be scary and this is just my year to step up and prove to myself that I am the courageous one I was once said to be. God's got this, and hopefully I'll be walking with him instead of being my typically stubborn, frightened self running ahead or trying to run a different route entirely.
Welcome to the new year, Jaymin Louise. Let's make it a good one.
