I’m Twenty; Now It’s Crunch Time!

So here’s the day I was waiting for. My day of judgement, my day of reckoning. As I take a look back at my life, I accept that I truly have achieved a lot.

At 06:53 in the morning, two decades ago, I was born.

I was fed up of my mother’s uterus and decided to leave it two weeks earlier than everyone anticipated

As a result, I was yellow.

Juandice is quite common in new born babies, especially when they are born as prematurely as myself. So I was incubated, pricked with lots of needles and fed for a few days before I went home

Meanwhile, there was a flood in my house.

Apparently a water pipe burst causing some flooding a few days after I was born. So it’s probably just as well that I wasn’t at home. 

Thursday’s child has far to go

You know the daft old rhyme that your parents tell you.

Monday’s child is full of face, Tuesday’s child is full of grace, Wednesday’s child is full of woe, Thursday’s child has far to go, Friday’s child child is loving and giving Saturday’s child works hard for a living and then of course you have Sunday’s child who is apparently bonnie, blithe, good and gay. 

I digress, on this list, I’m Thursday’s child which means that I have far to go. Now I’ve always interpreted that as “I have a lot to learn” but what it’s actually supposed to mean is that I will have a lot of success over the years.

Like I’m sure most people would say, I never expected my life to turn out like this

It’s been long, it’s been hard, but finally at last I am the person who I have always wanted to be. 

My standards and expectations are high

They always have been. 

But I found what I was searching for. Resolution was easy to find when I gave myself the kick I needed

I’m sure most people think this post is jibberish by now, so I’m just going to round this off. 

Sleep well everyone!
