You're not 21 forever...

Hello everyone!

It's that time of year again... my birthday! Today I've reached 22, I can't actually believe it, I still feel about 14. Got to wait until I'm 40 now until my next 'big' birthday and I'm not eager for that to come round in a hurry.

I think the 20s age group is such a strange age to be. Especially when you've left university and suddenly the world expects you to start growing up and making something of yourself. It's a competitive and difficult time in life when, really, they should be your best years. All your friends are doing different things, some of you have better jobs/earning more than others, some of you still don't know where you want to be in life (i.e. me) some are getting married. Everyone wants to be the best and have the best things. It's such a challenge. 

I didn't do much with my year of being 21. Probably my most important achievement was graduating from university. This year, I want to do more things that people should be doing in their 20s. I have a job that allows me to have plenty of holidays and weekends, I have no commitments, so I have made the executive decision to make the most of the freedom, do more stuff, have fun and stop taking things too seriously. 

Unfortunately, I'm in work on my birthday (I know, I agree, everyone should have the right to a day off on their bday) but to be honest, it's a Wednesday, not the most exciting day of the week anyway. However, this weekend my friends and I are going to Liverpool for shopping, cocktails, vodka etc. and I'm soo excited, it'll be nice to spend a few days with them and catch up. Also, our hotel room has a jacuzzi... how posh are we?  

Sorry for the ramble ramble post but I didn't want to just upload a product review and allow my birthday no blog air time ;) 

Hope you're all having a wonderful week, if it's your first one back after Christmas I hope you're surviving!

See you all next time,
