Birthday the twenty-third is starting off pretty awesomely. Earlier in the week, my parents sent down their presents to me, which included an iHome, which is *COMPLETELY AWESOME* and I love it to death (despite setting it wrong and waking up an hour later than intended yesterday, whoops). I love coming up with good songs to wake up to. My faves so far are Blind Melon's "No Rain" and The Boy Least Likely To's "I See Spiders When I Close My Eyes." It's good to start off the day with some soothing guitar and a perky chorus. Plus it gradually increases the volume of the song so you don't wake up all startled a la clock radio.

Last night I went out to Maggie's with Jeff, Dan, Maddie, Beth, and Dan H. We had a wonderful time reminiscing about freshman year. Oh god oh god we are excruciatingly close to graduating :-(. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if I could go back and re-live one time in my life, it would be my first semester at ISU. EVERYTHING was magical.

Usually on my birthday, I feel like, "Oh my god, how am I 21 already? Or how am I 22 already?!" But for some reason, I feel like I accepted 23 about a month ago. I think this is because I've been around slightly older people this semester at points, so 23 doesn't feel as old as it used to. It's good, it feels good to say, I'm in favor of it generally.

The only thing is I can't think of anything "fun" about 23. 21 is fun for obvious reasons, plus there's that Cranberries song, "Twenty-One". 22 was my Golden Birthday, and there's that line in Avenue Q ("You-ou are twenty-two, and you live on Avenue Q!"). And there's that A.E. Housman poem that ties both ages together...

Sadly, all I can think of for this birthday is part of Blink 182's "What's My Age Again?":

"Nobody likes you when you're twenty-three!"

Ah well. :-)

Maggie's again tonight at 11. Be there or be square.
