first day of being twenty. I don’t often get mistaken for another age, but today was the first time that I was. just so happened that the day I turn 20, a woman believes I am 15. I supposed that is not the worst thing
it started to look like a bleak birthday, as I had a pretty rough sleep and for a period I thought my dad may have forgotten but it got much better as the day went on. I cleaned up the house and just lay in my pretty new bedroom. mom came home and took the afternoon off, so we went to Watts Rd beach, my favorite beach. It was quite warm but really windy so we just walked. Jenny had a blast. on the way there she gave me and gorgeous brooch from my favorite antique store and a gift certificate to that store (and I already know what I’ll spend it on). Then we got pizza and I went to matthew’s house. we watched the office then he gave me his present :) an absolutely beautiful quilt. oh my god its amazing. its also from the antique store and wow i did not expect him to remember the one time I mentioned there being a quilt I was dreaming about, let alone the store it was at or what it even looked like.
so now I’m feeling pretty good. I spontaneously ordered a vintage turquoise rhinestone collar brooch today too, little present to myself. on friday, me and matthew are going to see the Great Gatsby which I am beyond excited about, and possibly going out to eat if there’s time. me and mom are also going to miramichi this weekend and maybe some shopping. although there are things that I wish did happen, such as this silly desire I have to one day be surprised with a birthday party from my friends or have someone plan a trip to the bars and have one of those pink “birthday girl” pins…I guess I have to be happy about what I do have and not what I don’t.
