My birthday, day of birth, day I graced the Earth with my presence, is tomorrow.
I feel like every week I’ve learned something about life, the world, or myself and changed just a little more. I’ve grown a lil bit more bitter, rougher around the edges, and built higher walls, but, I’ve also learned more about accepting myself and having fun with the cards I’ve been dealt.
As a 17 year old (in just a few more hours) I’m still growing and changing and learning, something I’m really happy about, but I can’t help but get nostalgic looking back at easier times and thinking about how different I am from the girl who was 15 going on 16.
Still though, I am the dancing queen, young
and sweet, only seventeen.
