They Say It’s MY Birthday!

Yes, I’m stepping closer and closer to the abyss.

Right now –  at this VERY MOMENT OF 12:32pm PST – I just turned 28.

What?  You didn’t hear anything?  Well, just imagine muffled screams mixed with maniacal laughter and you’ll be close.  I go back and forth between looking at some aspects of my life and wondering how I did so little by this age, but then I look at others and remember how hard I’ve worked to get that far so fast.

I’m takin’ the day off, so re-posting a meme type thing that Julie posted in her blog Julie’s Journal last month on her birthday.
