well. it's my birthday today. and i'm turning 25. i realize, relatively, 25 is not all that old...
but i also realize that just a few years ago i never envisioned being 25. it seemed so old.
now i am at a stage where i am almost finished with graduate school and i am faced with adult decisions and big changes and faced with the pressure of finding a job that can help support ben and i but also be something i can stand doing every. single. day.
i get freaked out by this reality. i just don't want to turn into that person who lives to work
we mostly work to live, until we live to work**
i think i get more and more retrospective and adultish with every coming birthday.
... but not to get all philosophical. borrrring.
i'm just glad i get to spend the whole day with ben in our lovely city of washington, d.c.
this is the first birthday o' mine that will be spent alone with ben in dc
last year we were in the dominican republic, year before family visited.
*photos of me on my first birthday. you can see my love of sugar and sugar hyperness came early
