The Number Twenty Three

14 years

Today I am 23 years old, It seems so strange that I have been on this earth for that long when everything has sped past in a flash of colours and cupcakes. x:cupcakestraw: That is life, it does that (the sneaky little pooh). I have had a very slow relaxing day which has been good. I watched the movie Up and love it to pieces. 3_3 I also went on a huge shopping spree the other day and brought heeeaaps of things. DVDs, Books, Sheets, Quilt Covers, Bags, Shoes, Mice (as in the computer variety, hopefully this time they will last a while I seem to be cursed), a laptop cooler fan thingy and random other things.

Mum surprised me with a really lovely desk for my room. It is black and silver and looks sexy. I hope to have it set up tomorrow. ^_^

Mogwai and Rascal are the best of friends now. Rascal was very jealous at first but now they have a whole bunch of fun. They look so adorable cuddled up together. 4_4 Hopefully I will actually put up pictures some time in this millennium.

Thank you to everyone that wished me a happy birthday on Twitter/Facebook/LiveJournal or email. It was very lovely to receive your kind words and made me smile. 3_3

  1. You’re only as old as you act and feel! So as long as you don’t act 23 or don’t feel 23, you won’t feel any difference. πŸ˜€ I’m kind of backwards, though. I’ve been mature and feeling old all my life. So I don’t feel much of a difference since I was 14, and I’m almost 18. xD

    Lucky you, going on a shopping spree. :O Seems like you got a lot of nifty things. I’m moving to Australia so we can go shopping… I’ve been trying to get my mom to go for weeks (can’t drive yet). D:<

    Happy 23rd birthday! Again! x:cupcakestraw:

  2. Man I know how you feel. I am 21, but I feel *old* at times, no joke! πŸ˜› It absolutely baffles me when I think about events in American history and stuff that I had to hear about 24/7 on the news and realizing they were over 10 years ago…

    I remember watching OJ Simpson be acquitted of murder in 1995, then hearing about the turn out of the civil trial in 1997. I remember when the Monica Lewinsky & Linda Tripp recorded phone calls were released to the public. Heck, I remember seeing Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” video premier on MTV in 1998. To think all that stuff happened OVER 10 YEARS AGO just blows my mind.

    Yeah. Getting older is freaking scary at times, but also nice in a way. πŸ™‚ It sounds like you had a lovely birthday, so yay! πŸ™‚

  3. I know how you feel! I’m a couple of months older than you, and turning twenty-three made me feel really old. :S I can’t believe it’s been seven years since I was sixteen! Or five years since I was eighteen! Where has it all gone? :O

    But, at the same time… It’s nice to grow up, sometimes. πŸ™‚

    (I am glad you had a lovely birthday, Kya dear! <3)

  4. Haley, I remember the first landing on the moon! Now howsabout that for feeling old?! πŸ™‚ Kya, penblydd hapus and many more of them!

  5. Happy birthday Kya! <3 Glad you had a awesome birthday hehe.
    Oooh. Your the zodiac sign Pisces am I right? I'm a Pisces too. :3
    "You spend half of your life wishing to be older and the other half of your life wishing to be younger." That's a quote I just read a couple of days ago, I thought it was pretty interesting haha.

  6. Happy belated birthday! My boyfriend’s 23 and he’s always saying he feels old, I don’t see 23 as being old at all though but I’m only 19 myself.

    Ohhh shopping is always fun! πŸ™‚

  7. Happy Belated Bday! I was offline a lot this week. But I hope you had a great day ^_^

    Shopping for new things are always fun 8)

    I’m only 15 and even I sometimes think life is going by really fast. I used to be all excited about growing up. But now that I know all the responsibilities that’s ahead, I’m cringing at the moment 4_4

    But I know it’s for the best x:cupcakestraw:

  8. Belated happy birthday, Kya! I’m sorry I wasn’t able to greet you but it’s better late than never, right? πŸ˜‰ I’m turning 22 in May and I can’t believe that i’ve lived for more than two decades now. Haha.

    I still haven’t watched Up. My boyfriend and I promised each other that we’ll watch it together πŸ™‚

  9. Okay, so maybe you all will throw a shoe at me, but I turned 18 last January and I feel old amongst my friends! I’m one of those who have their birthdays earlier than others, and sometimes I just feel that I’m old. I watched a Korean variety show the other day and spotted a cute guy whose age is 17. And then I remembered that I’m no longer 17. I’m 18 now and somehow I feel old :p

    By the way, I can’t wait to see pictures of Mogwai! x:cupcakestraw:

  10. Happy belated birthday! I haven’t watched Up yet but I’ve heard good things about it. Thanks for the reminder. I should watch it one of these days. πŸ™‚
