So yesterday I turned 26. I hope this photo really speaks a 1000 words and I can keep this post short, because the topic of my birthday makes me uncomfortable. I woke up feeling slightly depressed, looked in the mirror, swore I found a new wrinkle, said "F makeup," and then chose to spend the day in my PJs watching war movies. On the bright side I LOVED Fury! Anyway, I wish in that day of attempting to avoid my age by escaping through tales of historical violence and men in uniforms I had experienced a kind of fabulous epiphany. You know one where I had a new positive and less vain take on life, age, and all sorts related but I didn't. Sorry folks. Although I am no longer bummed about hitting the peak of my mid 20s, thanks to the loved ones in my life that went out of their way to make me feel special on my supposed day, I still cringe when I think of said number. This will pass, I realize. I am not sobbing in isolation at the thought of now being out of college as long as I was in it, although I find that fact annoying, I am instead starting the day with a mental pep talk I will now share with you. "26 is a stupid birthday and it is now over. Yay! Today is a new day and let's get back to the routine of blogging, running and painting. Stop your pouting and be glad you are alive!" That's as far as I have gotten haha, any other birthday blues uppers?
On a more positive note, I am offering 26% off of all items in my Etsy shop when you use the code BDAY26, now thru Feb 10th! If there's a drawing from IDRAWSKIES that you like more let me know and I can easily add it!
