In two weeks, I'll be 28. My age will go from cubed to perfect. I'm usually pensive around this time, mostly because my birthday has been in the most inconvenient of times. Competing holiday parties, birthday parties, vacations, and the fact that it's on a Thursday, usually results in conflicts. Once again, I have absolutely no idea how to celebrate. I remember the party I had last year and realized the friends I gained and lost since. Needless to say, the year was not boring. I like to think that I'm in a better place. Despite the chaos, it was never my loss. I want to capitalize on my 20s while I'm still at that age.
