Today I've learned how uncomfortable I am when I'm happy.
I’ve learned that my body tries to protect me even when the rest of me doesn’t.
Today I've learned that I am attracted to trash behavior.
I'm a petty, neurotic and indecisive woman who likes a variety of things you probably don't care about. Why? Because I'm attractive enough for you to fantasize about but not attractive enough to make you want to fight for your honor. I'm also marginally intelligent but let's be real, you saw my photo and decided to ignore anything I may have typed here.
I'm not about to assume y'all know me so I'll just tell you what today is. Today is my birthday. As the title gives away, yes I am 24. I've made a lot of decisions, met a lot of people and spent a lot of time learning about this here life I have. Now it's time to sit down at this desk and give you all some golden nuggets I've picked up on the way.
Issa video! Of me talking about being bisexual.
You were exactly what I asked for. A carbon copy straight out of my mind. I should have been more careful.
When I tell you I love you, it doesn't mean we go together now. It doesn't mean I want your children. It doesn't mean I need to meet your family. I love you means I love who you are as a person. I have surpassed like and landed on love.
If you could, please disregard the previous letter left on your pillow. That has too much hubris dripping. Too much anger. Too many other emotions that negatively influenced the creation of that notice.
Pain is unavoidable. It'll show up early and be one of the most consistent feelings in your life. By the time you reach adulthood, you've been hurt often and in different ways. Do you remember the first time you fell off a bike? Probably. Or the first time you were teased? Maybe. Or even the first time you realized someone lied to you?
At some point you will be in a position for far too long. Whether it's a job, a relationship or a body size, it's possible to be in a rut.
The women in my life have all told me not to grow up too fast. Don't move too fast. Don't make such hasty decisions. My young mind thought they had no idea what they were talking about. The best things come to those who speed!
I was sorely mistaken.
