Another year older
It's technically my birthday since it's after midnight. I'm turning 27 day. I'm trying to hold it together. Someone at work asked me the other day how old I was and I told them I was 25. Then I was like no I'm 26 (but not immediately because it didn't register) and then I had to be like 'Wait, I'll be 27 in a week. Why? Because I want to stop at 25. I know, you say 27 isn't THAT old but to me .... it's old. I'm not ready for late twenties. AT. ALL. I really enjoyed 25. I felt it signaled "Hayley is an adult." Then I turned 26 and had a breakdown. I was not working on my 'life plan' at all. Time was ticking by and I was casually lounging on the couch while it went away. So at 26 I was ready to get busy but then I work up one day and realized 'Great' now I'm practically 27. And today I turn 27 and think 'Great here we are at 27, now what?' But on a happy note, I'm still young enough for Mark to make me an awesome birthay cake!!
