Hello 24. I spent my birthday taking an exam and then rewarding myself with a delicious gyro.  Nothing spectacular for the start of my 24th year.  It came and went and that was that.  I did not want to make a big deal of my birthday.  I did get to do something fun and had dinner with a bunch of friends and played laser tag over the weekend.  Hmmm I may seem to be in denial about the growing up phase.  As for birthday presents, I got a nice package from home and an iPad!  It's definitely something that I don't really need...but I tried it out and I'm getting used to the idea of using it for school.  I already have some great adventures planned for my twenty fourth year.  Here's to accomplishing them all!
