Twenty five is my scary age. DISCLAIMER. 25 IS NOT OLD. I know I am still in the prime of my life, getting to the next level professionally, still balling out on the weekends, and I am going to look back on this post when I am 73 with my 3000 cats in an ammonia-pee filled house and shake my head. Most people say it is 30 or 40 is their scary age but for me 25 feels very definite. I remember being 11 thinking “When I am 25 I am going to be doing…XYZ”…I can certifiably say I am doing none of those things. Not in a bad way, I am incredibly happy with the way my life is heading but it is just absurd to reflect on all the things I assumed people accomplished by 25.
I feel so lucky to be participating in a 3 day bender for my day of birth, tying everything up tonight at Magpie for a huge dinner with all my frangs. Can’t even describe how excited I am for this dinner, it is everyone I love and a weird ass menu, all things are good. Sunday Trey took me to Lehja for dinner which was absolutely incredible, if you like Indian food it is very well done and sort of fusion-y. Our waiter was really cool and had the chef make something off the menu with chicken in a cashew sauce that I can’t spell. I haven’t had great Indian food in a long time so it was so fun to try something a little different, I basically took my naan and fashioned it into a funnel so that I could maximize my intake. We did gifts at dinner and I was shocked at how well Trey did. Normally he gets me “guy gifts”…ladies know what I am talkin’ about. Manuals, bike lights, gadgets…all great things I appreciate and do need…but I cannot believe he got me a Tiffany’s key. The boy has done well.
After gifts we went to The Funnybone for seriously the most hilarious stand up show in the world, I used to hate on this place just becomes it seems like such an institutionalized chain, but I just love stand up so it was hilarious.
On my actual birthday on Sunday I went to Tastings of Charlottesville with the Typod and enjoyed a great flight paring! I am a very full and happy birthday girl! Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes, I am glad I was born too ;)
