I turn 21 years old in 6 days. I'm not very impressed by this birthday, though. My mom keeps saying its a big birthday, but as someone who doesn't want to drink, I don't find myself as excited for it as I did turning 18 or 20.
I'm not that much of a debbie downer about it, though. I'm still excited to spend time with my family and see what presents I get. Even if the age doesn't mean much, the experiences I have on that day might.
Honestly, though, my malaise might just be because I'm exhausted. After I finished and turned in all my essays, the fumes I had been running on for the past few weeks/almost a month ran out and I was left a goopy little ball of a man. Mostly spending time in bed and working on the website, but I don't consider that time wasted. After a very busy semester with a lot of work and school, I'm allowing myself to take a break and just chill for a while.
Other than some work this week and my birthday, I don't have many solid plans yet. I want to clean my room first and foremost, and then I'll see about going to the park so I can start birdwatching. I got some binoculars and a nice messenger bag so I can carry some stuff with me. It sounds like a relaxing hobby, and goes well with my obsession with flipping over rocks and looking at bugs. Basically the same thing, just in the air.
The next big project for the site though is my review of The Walten Files. I kind of tear it apart and while I have like, 1 1/2 drafts done, I'm considering scrapping it and maybe going for something that feels less smarmy. I know that it's my site and I can do what I want, but I still don't want to be a dick for no reason, especially towards something a lot of people like.
Anyways, that's all for my updates. Pretty boring, I know. See you soon!
