Any April 21st birthdays? Fun fact: It’s Queen Elizabeth’s birthday too!
I apologize for how busy I’ve been lately. I’m still busy but my birthday is in T-3 hours (10 pm EST here) so I’m making time to celebrate it haha. I’ll be turning 21 on the 21st and before your mind jumps to that conclusion, no I will not be getting drunk. Why? Well I have a test on Friday, as well as work but also because I just don’t care for it. I’ve never really been much of a drinker and in fact, have only tried an actual drink in Australia (where the legal age is 18). It’s weird how in today’s society, it’s all about getting black out drunk- that’s the rite of passage for this milestone. It makes me feel somehow disconnected from everyone my age because I don’t want to do that. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t like the idea of not being able to control my mind or body in a sea of other drunk people. And no, I’m not criticizing those who do either! If they find it fun, then that’s fine too, but it’s just not for me. That’s not to say I will refrain from drinking ANY alcohol though. I admit I do want to try those pretty-looking ones haha.
My birthday will be spent like most of my birthdays throughout nursing school – studying as I have two quizzes tomorrow! You know you’re a nursing major when the best gift would be an A on your med surg quiz.
Anyways, how was your week?
