And I have the day off from work–so I’m lazing about in my pajamas, watching the second season of Futurama and having a long hot shower and getting some writing done. It’s quiet and still outside, threatening rain, and the dog is napping while my brother plays on his computer.
Congratulations and happy birthday! Welcome to the world of bills, fine print, and worry. No, wait, that’s after you leave school.
Ehhh… you’re young. Have fun. Travel. Rent a car and drive through Algonquin Park. Hang out in youth hostels, cafes in far cities, and remote landscapes. Follow dreams. Take trains. See places that are different. Learn languages. Sing. Draw. Pursue love.
The real crap doesn’t kick in until after you turn thirty, anyways.
