18 should come with a warning label

Why am I awake right now?

It’s 3 am. The world is fast asleep and my mind wont shut off.

I’d like to think this is the part of me that turned 18 last night, way too mature for sleep.. but of course its a friday night/saturday morning and I have little homework that needs to be accomplished.

Or little homework I have the motivation for accomplishing.

My birthday was wonderful.  Everything I could have hoped for. Cupcakes and glitter filled cards. Pink envelopes and pink laptop/keyboard covers.

My friends and I had a movie marathon. I wore a lace top and purple shorts.

I was happy.

I bought 2 lottery tickets and broke even, winning $2 back. 

I will go to the mall tomorrow, to return a few items. Which will undoubtedly result in buying a few as well.

I am happy.

I am awake.

Yet it’s 3 am.

Being 18 should come with a warning label, life doesn’t make any more sense than it did when you were 17.

Just go with it.
