Twenty-Eight

Today is my 28th birthday. I'm 28, and I still get carded for alcohol (even in Russia where the drinking age is 18). I'm 28 which means I never set foot in the USA during my 27th year. I'm 28 and still have never been married, but, honestly, I'm okay with that. I'm 28 and officially older than both my parents were when they got married and had me, which is depressing because I still don't feel like I'm ready to be an adult. I'm 28, and I have more gray hair than any 28 year old should. I'm 28, and I've already had the opportunity to travel to nine countries and live in abroad for two years. I'm 28, and I still have a lot to do to complete this list. I'm 28, and I still imagine I'll marry Leonardo DiCaprio just like my 8 year old self. Some things never change.

So, here's to the past 28 years and all the people I met and the friends I made and to the next 28 years. I can't wait to see where life takes me!

  1. Happy Birthday! Something that I try to remember (that I think most of us forget) is that our parents probably felt the same way getting married and having kids at this age, like the "what am I doing" feeling, you know? But it just doesn't seem like it 'cause they grew into that role over time :)

    1. Thank you! Good point! :) I really should ask my parents if they felt adult enough when they got married.
