I'm usually inexplicably bummed on my birthday. But today I'm in London. And before the day is over I'll be in Malmö, Sweden. Today is too special to be bummed. Sure, I wish I were better, and accomplished more by now. But I truly have a fun life, and am grateful for it.
I took a cue from the wise Mindy Kaling and donated to my two favorite charities (watsi and kitten rescue) today. New birthday tradition? I think yes.
PS. I'm 23 today. Does that mean I'm in my mid-20s? That scares me. Why don't they ever say mid-10s?
