Twenty-Two

22 years of my life has already past. I'm still trying to figure out where I belong in this world, who I will be, and where life will take me. I just hate that the last four years of my life literally felt like it happened within only a year. It's pretty insane. But, the future is still waiting and I'm just hoping that there is something great out there waiting for me. Something that i've been searching for my whole life. Just, something that will make me finally feel like me. 

Yes, I am 22. I really liked being twenty-one although nobody really knew because everyone just thought I was younger, but I never knew why. When I was 14 there were people thinking that I was 21. I thought that was crazy. But, when I was twenty-one, somebody literally thought that I was 14. How does that happen? I guess, maybe it was due to the lack of makeup I've been wearing the last few years. I used to love makeup when I was younger and would never go anywhere without wearing my once precious eyeliner. :P I guess eyeliner made me look older? Or maybe it's the fact that i'm shy. People are usually more confident in there 20's and outgrow their shyness. Maybe one day I will too.

Anyways, It's my birthday. Kenecha literally stayed up until midnight (when she wanted to go to bed) just to say Happy Birthday to me and then went off to bed. :P I'm hoping this day goes pretty well for me. I want it to be a happy day. And, I think it will be. When there's cake involved, You know it's a good day. I'm wearing my red velvet top and red velvet shirt from Garage. So, it kind of looks like a dress. :) But, I really like it.

Hope everyone else also has a lovely day! :)

  8. Maybe I'm too late to wish you a ?Happy Birthday', but I would like to extend it to 'Happy Twenties'!!!! You have such a great period of your life ahead, when you will see better in which direction is the one you prefer, but still young enough to change your mind several times. Try to make the most out of it, because, as you already noticed ;-), the older you become the faster time passes

  21. Happy 22nd Birthday! The colour of this dress looks so beautiful on you :) Also, I have the same thing of people thinking I was in my early twenties when I was a teen, and now I'm 21 but was mistaken for 16 last month - ouch! haha. Have a fantastic year ahead and I hope it brings all wonderful things and occasions your way!! :)

  56. The same reverse process happened to me...and maybe it is really the make up. When I was 14 everyone thought I was older and now they assume I'm younger. When people see someone without make up, they assume they are younger...the same way with clothes...and you do look very young. Some people just don't change that much. I was just looking at my friend yesterday ( a mother of two) and the looks exactly the same she did when she was 15. Exactly the same! When you see her, you would never guessed her age.

    Happy 22 btw! that's a great age to be:)

  87. Happy birthday to you! I would never have guessed your age, I thought you were much younger. I guess it's in your face. But trust me, it's better to look younger! Good luck on your journey. Your post reminds me of one of a saying I encountered a while back. All my life my heart has yearned for something I can not name. I hope you find whatever it is you are looking for.

Hope you enjoyed your celebratory cake; you didn't mention what flavour it was...red velvet, maybe, to match your pretty birthday outfit?! ;) P.S. I was also painfully shy until my early twenties; and yes, I "outgrew" it!! I bet you will, too!! XOXO

  102. Am Karen Tanya from Scotland. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. ogboni by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.ogboni . So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.ogboni for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. ogbonispelitemple1@gmail.com
