Another Year, Another Purchase

Hey y'all!

I'm 22 today, which feels startlingly old to me! 21 felt like a natural progression of age, but 22 feels like a huge jump! I'm really in my 20s now. And not long from now I'll be done with college and start working in the Real World, and then I'll maybe meet someone and maybe get married and maybe have kids and then never retire because I'll have wasted all my money sending the maybe kids to college, and then I'll grow older and DIE. 22, guys. It all starts now.

Aaaanyway, I ordered myself a gift last week while in a finals-induced haze, but it arrived just in time for my birthday! Which means I get to include it in my annual birthday post. Exciting!

I got the spike necklace and these earrings from the Alex & Chloe for Forever 21 collection. Here are some awkward photo booth pictures of them!

These are the earrings. They are absurdly heavy and I'm not sure I'll ever wear them, but I'm pretty happy with them in terms of appearance and quality.

I'm not sure why the rhinestones in the necklace were picking up pink light here. They are not pink.

You're never too old to take pictures where you look about 5 years old. NEVER.

The verdict: Having birthdays comes highly recommended. So does Alex & Chloe for Forever 21.

Ooooor you could just skip kids and settling down and spend your time and resources making yourself happy. You DO have this option, despite all the pressure EVERYONE will start putting on you soon to get married and reproduce. Trust me, the majority of my friends who settled down near your age and had kids soon after are NOT happy. Just a thought...

Nice post. Well, 22 is definitely not old. I am already 30 yet I don't feel old. It all depends on your heart.

If you feel young at heart, you will always be young. Enjoy your youth:-)

Cheers,
