Happy 23rd Birthday To Me!

I haven’t posted in this blog in a while because I’ve been having a bit of a tough time lately (understatement!) so I haven’t really felt like blogging. Sorry for the lack of updates. But, I want to keep up my blog and so here it goes again – and today’s my 23rd birthday!

I’m at home with my family in California, and then I go back to Spain on Sunday. Living in a foreign country can definitely be really, really difficult sometimes, and a whole bunch of extra stressful stuff just piled up at one time. It started as a normal ‘quarterlife crisis’ type thing and just got bigger and bigger and bigger. So being at home has been a nice and totally necessary break!

I had a really nice day celebrating. I went to a great Mexican restaurant with my parents at the Mission Inn, which is about the only famous thing in Riverside. Then my mum made me a fab homemade carrot cake (my favorite!), and we watched the last Harry Potter movie with lots and lots of tea. Hopefully I’m hitting up the Hollywood clubs this weekend to get some partying in as well.

I hope 23 will be a more fun, less stressful year than 22. Here’s to 23, and 2012!

  1. Sorry you hit the the unavoidable rocky bump of living in another country. You can get through it. ^^ It just takes time and some effort on your part to find things you enjoy. (I.e. picking up a hobby) I hope you feel more relaxed when you return and that 2012 goes well for you. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for your support and advice! I just got really unlucky – all that living abroad stuff happened at the same time as personal life messiness that would have been stressful anywhere. So here's hoping it gets better soon. :/ New year, new start, right?Anyway, happy new year to you and hope 2012 goes amazingly well for you!(Also I tried to reply to this a bunch of times, so sorry if you got a bunch of messages from me saying almost the same thing!)
