how to be 25
I'd thought about "how to be 25" a lot, probably too much. Then May 29th came. I awoke at 6am to work on an assignment for the Int'l Public Relations module, put on my new Naf Naf dress, had my module class from 10am to 5pm (with a 2-hour, errand-filled lunch break), and completed the next assignment immediately after. And then finally, without a moment to lose, I celebrated...
Le Quarante Trois. We clinked glasses, soaked up the rooftop views, and enjoyed each other's company. They even brought gifts! So sweet and unnecessary as I simply appreciated their presences so much. Eventually, we went on to wine and dine at Fish: La Boissonerie. Somehow, without figuring out "how to be 25", there I was sharing a birthday meal with six wonderful people I hadn't even known just one year ago. I felt lucky, and loved, and so thoroughly happy. And gosh, at the end of the (birth)day, that very sentiment truly is the only thing that matters. Yay to being wise and 25 ;).
