Birthday Suit

Today was my birthday and I think as an extra special birthday treat, Mother Nature brought some cold weather! There is nothing better than a ridiculously giant pair of socks on a cold day. NOTHING better. 

To be extra festive, I wore one of my mustaches today. I was working today at my babysitting job where I take care of two three year old twins after they get out of school. One of them looked at me and said:
"Why are you wearing a necklace of a piece of dirt?"
I couldn't help but laugh. Once I showed them what it actually was, they got a kick out of it. 

Turning 22 is strange. Twenty one is exciting. You can get drunk. Woo. Twenty two is a little anti climactic. Ari said to think of it as the first anniversary of my 21st birthday. I'm not upset or disappointed it's just kind of like's my birthday. Cool, I guess.

I made a list of 21 things to do before turning 22 and I accomplished maybe 3 of them and I have to say I don't care. This time last year I was working late on my birthday and doing nothing but working 16 hours a day and still broke all of the time. This year I'm still working all of the time, but not totally broke and Im working all of the time at a job I actually like. The Morose Bee jewelry sales haven't created the full time gig I was hoping for, but I have very little to complain about anymore. 

I hope everyone else is having a great day!
