As of 2:12 p.m. today, on October 12, 2011, I am officially 25 years old.

It pains me to even write that.

Me!!! Twenty fiiiiiiiive!!!


21 was ok, 22 was not so bad, 23 felt weird, 24 was rough but! That's something.

I think I am going to keep answering "24" when asked how old I am. I've decided to stay 24 forever. Like Peter Pan. Only I am older than that dude.

In other news...London is 20 days away. Tomorrow marks 19.

My To Do List for the trip is lengthy but most of it is pretty simple.

I can barely believe I am leaving so soon. I'm not sure it has REALLY hit me. It probably will while in a plane flying over the Atlantic.

So....yeah....I am now 25. Eek.

"It might be a quarter life crisis, or just a stirring in my soul..."

Am I too old to make a paper chain to count down the days until I leave for London?

Last week I:

- Got my suitcase out
- Got out clothes I am going to pack
- Bought a train ticket from London to Paris
- Bought a ticket to the Louvre Museum
- Bought a ticket to gain full access to the Eiffel Tower
- Bought a ticket for a bus tour of Paris

It was surreal to say the least. I still don't think that this trip has really sunk in yet and it happening one month from today. I cannot believe it. Seriously.

Also, it is hitting me that I am turning 25 in a few weeks. In 10 days to be exact. Turning 25 is really, truly, honestly, freaking me out. Extremely. I don't know what it is exactly, it's just so weird and I can't wrap my head around being THAT OLD. And by old I don't necessarily mean ooooold, but just old.
