Goodbye, childhood...

Well, this is it... the final evening of being a kid. I'm kinda nervous because there's so many things I could be doing or should do tomorrow to make it the best birthday ever. Well, it probably will be anyways, but when I was younger, I was really into the details of my birthday. I would always calculate exactly how many days old I was and think about how weird it was that I was a year older. Now that I'm going to be 18 tomorrow, things will be kinda different, but I don't think I want to dwell on it too much. Sure, I will buy scratch tickets and vote and whatever else I'm allowed to and want to do, but I know I won't feel different, so I shouldn't be so dramatic. I've thought that perhaps I should act more mature, but I would just be faking it, and besides, even acting mature would still be acting. I am whoever I am all the time. I think Alex, a guy I work with who's 18, put it best when he said that when you're 17, you act like a 12-year-old, and when you turn 18, the only thing different is you'll act like a 12-year-old in a casino. So that's that... I'm just gonna keep being who I am and take advantage of what I'm allowed to do when I'm 18, but I won't change to fit my age. So with that out of mind, I'm going to have the best day ever tomorrow. w00t!

Kinda after the fact. But in the words of Abebraham Lincoln, "Party on, Dude!"
