Looking Back On and Paving Ahead Another Orbit

So this is a first. Sometimes I’ve written right before or after my birthday, but never ON my birthday. Yes, today is my birthday, and much like my blog post from last year, I have thoughts about where I am in life as a writer and as a human.

Finding the Road

It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post centered around my birthday, and with my birthday having just happened yesterday, I figured that I reflect on that. Now normally I try to avoid writing about myself unless it’s within context of the particular subject matter being addressed for the day, but with what is going on right now, I feel that now is a wise time.

Forever 22

About a year ago, I was pondering over what was yet to come for me as I was on the verge of turning 22.  Now, once again, I’m in that same position, although of course there’s a one digit difference.  I am now two days away from turning 23.

Growing up, you’re told by adults how time flies as you get older, and you never really believe it.  It’s not until you actually do get older and actually experience it for yourself.  For that matter, in the case of motioning from one birthday to another, I can’t believe it went by so fast.

I remember at this time a year ago, I made it bluntly aware of how unfulfilled I felt in my life, despite all that I had going on, on my plate at the time.  Well, I can assure myself now that this past year of being 22 has certainly made up for that feeling of lacking.

Last Day of 21

A year has come and gone, as quickly as it may be, and now I am less than a day away from turning 22.  My time as being the societal-hyped age of 21 is to end soon.

Whenever another birthday for me comes, I always imagine it as it is whenever the Doctor regenerates in Doctor Who; a new body, a new face, new fashion sense even… it’s as if you’re a completely different person.  And yet it’s never that drastic, the change in age.  It’s more of a gradual process that may not even last a full 365 days.
