Well, it’s probably fitting my birthday post is a few days late.
It’s been a busy few weeks even after finishing my degree and I haven’t really had time just to sit. But, now that I’m back in Edinburgh, I’ve been using my time to read, sleep, and play Skyrim for the thousandth time. I just beat Aulduin again last night. You could call me the Dovah-Kenn (sorry that was a terrible joke). I also went to see Avengers: Endgame. I probably need to see it again considering I cried through half of it, especially when Carol did THAT!!! and Steve did THAT!!!
But anyway, here’s that belated birthday post even though I’m still *technically* 15 on my Kansas driver’s license.
I’m always worried about the weather on my birthday considering for the first 18 years of my life it rained buckets. But, Edinburgh once again gave me the best birthday gift with a sunny, warm day spent in the Meadows and empty seats at the Argyle in the evening.
I’ve never been one to fuss about the day I hatched fully formed from an egg, but I do like to have my space to declare ‘I won’t do a damn thing’ and throw myself down on the ground.
As for words of wisdom now that I am entering upon the golden Taylor Swift Birthday, I’m honestly not sure. 19-year-old Kennedy apparently had a lot to say about the world so you can read what she wrote here. Truthfully, I think she was pretty smart (albeit maybe a bit arrogant). Most of it still applies with the addition of maybe one more.
If these past four years in Faerieland, have taught me anything it is: be willing to adapt but also be confident within yourself. You never know when opportunity will arrive, but you can make sure you are ready to met it when it does.
So, anyway. Happy Birthday to me.
