it's hard to believe that it's almost my birthday again.  this past year has absolutely flown by.  

this year, my birthday wish list includes:
+ a long backpacking trip through Iceland
+ entrance into my top PhD program
+ a cute cabin in the woods of Colorado
+ a month sailing on a tall ship like my friend maranatha did
+ a sea kayaking trip around the channel islands

okay, so my realistic wish list includes eye glasses, a trip to the dentist, new break pads for the car and money to take the GRE.  not nearly as fun as my "no limitations" list above, but i guess i'm a real grown-up now.

{this is what happens when i sigh after thinking about the inner struggle between adult responsibilities and youthful free-spiritedness. she always knows how to make me feel better.}


  1. Fingers crossed for you!

    & dogs know just how to cheer us up, don't they? My pup is resting his head on my arm at present.
