Today is my birthday and I am 27 years old. 27. Hmm...27. Twenty-seven.
Sometimes I feel like I have wasted a lot of time. Like some of what I want for my life should have happened by now. It is not like I haven't done anything - I have done a decent amount of traveling, I got married, I have gone to University and have a BA. But there are somethings that are still a bit out of reach - owning a home, having a job that I love to go to everyday, starting a family, not being in so much debt (thanks, student loans...). It isn't like I am not happy with my life, I just wish it would move forward faster, but without me aging...is that so much to ask!?
This past weekend I was with my family and it was nice to be with them (even with my 2 sisters ganging up on me big time!). I am not doing much today - going to work and then meeting my brother for dinner (I don't think he remembers it is my birthday...). I am also going to Pittsburgh on Wednesday and will get to see Joe, who I haven't seen in 18 days! It will be nice to be on holidays and de-stress and slow down.
I hope you all have a great start to your week!!
