Today I'm considered a year older than I was yesterday. Strange social phenomenon. Today I can do things that I couldn't do yesterday (Hi, I'm Cole, and I'm 21 years old.) simply because I have aged one day. Fascinating.

Birthdays make people feel differently, depending on their personality, the number tacked onto their identity that year, physical and emotional hangups about age, etc. For the vast majority of people turning 21, there is a lot of excitement and happiness about birthdays. If, today, there is a woman turning 59, though, she may not be feeling the same *woohoo!* that I'm feeling (though I sincerely hope that she is).

Personally, the thing that I am MOST excited about today is that I get to go to the Scat Jazz Lounge--FINALLY! AND I can go to the liquor store and buy rum to make chocolate rum cupcakes!!! They're freaking delicious. Trust me. Worth getting excited about.

But this morning for my birthday, I'm reading my homework for my classes today. Just thought I'd pop in and say hi to you guys :)

Have a lovely day!

  1. Or you can be like me and forget how old you are. It's a very tough question when people ask; it takes lots of thought. When I was 22, i accidentally told people i was 24. Now, at 25, i think my initial reaction is to say 28.

    So glad you made it to the # that keeps you away from music and baking! Now just wait until you can rent a car!
