Today is my twenty-second birthday.
*queue distant cheer*
The end of a year of legality in the USA and three in Canada.
The end of a year that brought more plane tickets and airport bars than pubs in my own town.
It has truly been amazing year.
Yet, even with the fantastic travels and the astounding paths I’ve walked, this has been one of the hardest years for me yet. It’s been an internal fight lately; what was once overcome so easily now takes days, even weeks to work up to a confrontation.
And that’s why I’m not surprised that the song I thought of for my twenty-first year wandering is “Big Bad Wolf” by In This Moment.
I’m still working on fitting into the body suit getup Maria Brink looks fucking amazing in, but my hair has become pretty rad (good-bye bad hair days, hellooo beanies).
