23 Thoughts I've had before turning 23

I'm writing this post pretty late - the night before my 23rd birthday - because I've only just thought of this idea. Anyway, tomorrow I turn 23. I've had many different thoughts in the lead up to tomorrow and I just wanted to share some, as I hope most people have had similar thoughts.

1. Yayy it's my birthday soon
2. Oo, I don't want any presents this year
3. I don't need any presents this year
4. I'm getting too old for presents. Money would amazing.
5. Oh wait, there is something that I want.
6. Am I too old to ask for a present?
7. I really don't want to anything special for my birthday this.
8. Hmm, actually there is one thing that I'd like to do.
9. I'd just be happy spending my birthday with alcohol and pizza at home, in my pj's.
10. Holy crap, I'm going to be 23! Twenty flipping three!
11. OMG, I'm two years away from turning 25! Two tiny years. What am I even doing with my life.
12. Wait, I'm fine. It's only 23. Nothing to be scared about. It's only another birthday.
13. I'm just excited to stuff my face with cake to be honest.
14. No. I'm not fine. I really really don't want to be another year older.
15. Time to really get my s**t together.
16. How quickly has the last year gone, I still remember my birthday last year like it was yesterday!
17. Eee, ok I'm getting a little excited now again. 
18. I'm not too old to still get excited over my birthday right?
19. Ooh, I'd quite like this [item].
20. If you want to see me on my birthday, you can organise it because I don't plan on doing anything. (Is that a horrible thought to have?)
21. Ok, maybe I should do something for my birthday, even just a dinner. Yeah I'll do that.
22. No, I'm definitely not doing a night out. 
23. I just really can't be bothered for my birthday this year.

It's fair to say I've had a massive mix of thoughts and emotions about turning 23. A part of me couldn't care less, it's just a number. A part of me is a little anxious about turning another year old. And a part of me is still as excited as I was when I was a child. 

Either way, it's happening and before I know it the day will be over and I'll actually be 23. Woo!

I'd love to know any thoughts you've had before your birthday! x
