Thursday, September 8


That's sort of how I'm feeling today. As I hinted at before, today I turned 21. I'm thrilled, don't get me wrong. And I'm sooo looking forward to the gift opening, dinner out, cake eating and casino trip we have planned. And somehow I'm guessing there will be some drinking in there too. But it just feels strange. I am a "grown up" in a lot of ways. I moved in with Jaime a few months before I turned 18 and I've always been pretty independent. But my dad still gives me money just for the heck of it (he knows how being a student can be) and I still go to my mom's to do my laundry every week. I still expect people to treat me like a kid. I always get nervous going to the bank cause I'm afriad they'll ask what I need that withdrawal money for. I'm so stuck in the middle. And while I'm glad to finally be able to do most anything I want and to have that "adult" label, I wish more than anything that I could go back to being a kid. As I told Jaime the other day, this responsibility thing stinks!

So I'm taking today off from school to just enjoy myself. I'm about to get back to knitting my sockapal2za socks, which are trying very hard to get finished on time. As of now I have one done (except weaving in ends which I always put off) and the second is on the heel turn. We'll see how that goes. Last night I finished my first sb page in ages. I'll have pictures of everything soon enough.

And of course, what a better birthday present than a new Knitty! There's some pretty cool stuff in this one.

Pictures and blogiversary coming soon. Hope you're having a great day!
