I never really liked my birthday. October first sounds pretty nice right? It's actually always on an inconvientient weekend. Conference Weekend. Plus also birthdays just aint what they used to be. Once you are out of high school they just become a situation that is awkward and a little embarrassing. What are you really supposed to do while people are singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you? I have taken on the uncomfortable smile and wierd giggle to fill in the space of people singing AT me.
So how did I celebrate my totally stellar 2oth birthday??! Well I went to school. I was in school mode from 730 to 5. The girls were sweet though. The girl who sits next to me made me cookies. And then all the other girls wished me a happy one. Which after awhile started to make me feel awkward.
Then when I got home I got my rent and utilities checks all put together. Oh what fun!
NEt I hopped onto Stella and made the 15 mile ride to my sister's house to pick up some stuff that I needed. THen I jumped right back on and rode home... Did I mention it was 52 degrees and I had no coat, nor gloves, and I was going 50 miles/hr. Needless to say, I was a little cold. So as a Happy birthday to myself, I bought gloves on the way home so that my fingers wouldn't fall off.
Next, my roommates bought me a cake and they sang to me (insert smile and giggle)
Then I scooted over to Alyssa and Koa's house to make sushi. It was yummy!
Then I scooted home and sat for a bit with a couple of my roommates. Then I went to bed. It was just after 10. I guess that was another happy birthday gift to myself.
The next morning I woke up a 7 and scooted the 15 miles to Pleasant Grove to babysit and clean. Oh and this time it was 32 degrees.
Later that night after a waaaay too long ride home (BYU football traffic)
I went to that BYU football game with Brooke, and it was surprisingly fun. First realish football game I have ever been to.
After that we went to the desert and dropped gasoline filled milk jugs down a huge old mine shaft. That was quite terrifying but cool too. IT might require a whole post to itself.
Saturday night... I sat at home. Yep.. thank you general conference.
YAY for being 20
