I don’t think I’ve ever celebrated my birthday more than I have with my 21st. And it’s not just the age that’s a big deal; everyone goes out of their way to make it such a memorable and special day for you. It’s safe to say that there were many surprises waiting for me on the 19th May, many of which completely unexpected but so thoughtful and amazing!
So this is pretty crazy: exactly a year ago today, on 22nd May 2016, I wrote my very first post on LoveLucyRebecca. It was a post about how I was excited for the new year, having just had my birthday and turned 20 three days prior. Now I’ve just celebrated my 21st birthday, and with it has come the realisation that I’ve been writing on my website for exactly a year, to the day!
My birthday is finally here!
I‘m so excited to officially be 21 and to have made it to an age that is such a milestone. I always thought 21 was such an old age (as in, it sounds pretty old when you’re just a kid/teenager) so it’s pretty crazy to think that I’m now that old myself. I guess when you’re young, a part of you thinks that you’ll be young forever and will never reach the older ages like 21 or above. I was like this, anyway. It’s been such a huge and eventful year for me being 20, so I really I hope I have an amazing year to come and have heaps to look forward to!
I had such a nice time being back in Melbourne, and even though we only went for the usual week I was able to do so much while I was there. If there is one place that I’ll always be excited to keep going back to, it’s Melbourne. I just feel that it’s such an amazing city, there’s so much to do and it always seems to have a really positive and upbeat vibe. Continue reading
I know I’m not supposed to be thinking about you. I know I’m not supposed to be wondering what your life is like now, who’s in it or what you’re currently going through. I know I’m not supposed to be thinking about everything that happened, or replaying it all in my head. I’m not supposed to be going over all the events that lead up to this temporary end with you. I’m not supposed to be thinking about how it all affected me and in which ways, but the truth is I can’t help any of it. A part of me is full of curiosity.
Standing at a fork in the road, it can be hard to know what path you should walk down as well as what waits for you at the end. This is it: it’s either all of nothing. Now is the time when you have to decide whether you’re in or out, and you don’t have long to make this decision. So what are you supposed to do for the best?
