S turns 28 *sunshine*

My birthday post has never been so late. I have been struggling to write this post for so long. And now I am just going to complete this anyhow so that I can remove it from my to-do list.

Till last year, growing up was a lot of fun. Becoming independent etc. But this time, I was like a Peter Pan. Suddenly too many things are changing and I want to pause everything. Rewind and fast forward. Take a good look at Time.

I hate the responsibilities that come with growing up. All I can think of right now is turning 30 and then 32 and then 35 (cant look beyond that) and I shudder to imagine what lies ahead. Good things (too) I am sure, but it is daunting. And I am restless.

This year my birthday involved reading Calvin and Hobbes (he got me the ENTIRE collection) and coloring pictures (colouring book for adults, it has illustrated postcards of streets of Paris – it is lovely!). I brought in my birthday right after some personal and professional ‘turmoil’ and was not my usual chirpy self. But I behaved like a 5 year old that entire week (got my birthday gifts early- Amazon yayy!).

My birthday was the sunshine I needed to feel blessed.

So a happy happy birthday was had.

I miss this blog and I am going to be back soon.
