Hello all! It's my 21st birthday, and in case you didn't see in my last post, I'm riding out Isaac this week! It's certainly not as bad as it will be in New Orleans, but they are expecting a lot of downed trees and some small flooding. So far all we've seen is some strong wind, but we're expecting to lose power for Lord knows how long. That's the scariest part in 100 degree weather!
PS Here's the cute duckies in my complex trying to swim against the wind and currents.
Anyways, catching up on my 21 before 21 list, I wasn't able to finish! There was 11 things I didn't finish, but I'm still planning on finishing soon. :)
The saddest thing I have to admit is that I didn't learn any sign language! I did learn the word "hurricane" though by watching the news. 1/20, not bad.
Now just a few thoughts of being 21. I am old. I know that's not true, but its so crazy. I feel like it was just last year, I was graduating high school! Now I'm more than halfway through college, and planning things way in the future. It's nuts!
Secondly, I am not planning on anything crazy like most people when they turn 21. I just don't see the allure of partying or gambling like some people. I might gamble just once though with my grandparents. It's a healthy hobby they occasionally enjoy, and I think it'd just be fun to go with them because I can! And maybe buy a lotto ticket every now and then. Who doesn't dream about winning the lottery? ;)
Thirdly, I am not at all where I thought I'd be in my life right now. I'm not saying that I haven't enjoyed every second of it, but it's crazy. I'm living in a different state, I took over a year off school, I'm living with my parents again (yay free rent!), I'm in the middle of a hurricane. It's just so different than I pictured it.
I hope all of you are having a safe and dry week, especially all my gulf coast friends. Please be safe, and for those not in the area, please pray for everyone down here!
