Today is the day I turn 22!

“I got engaged to your dad when I was 22, you know.”

Ok ma. Way to go. Yay. I feel “better” already.

Anyway, today, on this fateful Wednesday, is the day I turn 22. I KNOW, RIGHT? Where has the time past? I thought I took my SPM result last week and got into university yesterday. How the hell has it been 4 years since I left school? I’m going berserk just thinking about how time flies.

Talking about what I have achieved in my 22 years of living makes me want to sit at the corner of the room and cry because I honestly think I haven’t achieved my goals yet. Not that my goals are that hard to achieve but I was hoping that I could at least achieve something I can be proud of. Does having a self-hosted blog count as being successful or am I just making a big deal out of it? Soz.

22nd birthday

Anyway, let’s talk about the highlight of Erin being 22:

— I still can’t drive for shit. How do I even start a car?

— Well my boyfriend is still in the UK and we are still doing long-distance relationship for another 6 months (can’t wait for it to end!) and he’s obviously not here to celebrate my birthday. Nothing new there.

— I’m doing semester 5 of Education degree. 3 more semesters and an internship to go before I bid goodbye to university. HALLELUJAH.

— I still suck at saving money.

— But more importantly, I am still alive and breathing and blessed!


Happy birthday, dear self. I hope everything turns out great for you and hopefully it will be alright. I know one day it will.

    The twenties are a doozy, but you have such a great outlook on it. 23 will, for sure, be better than 22. Happy birthday, sweet one!
