There are two queens in this world that matter... the badass Queen Elizabeth and myself. 364 days of the year come and go, but on December 3, 1992, the second coolest queen was born. I absolutely LOVE birthdays, not just my own. I think it's amazing that you share your day with so many other millions of people in the world, but it still is a special day for you. 26 may be an irrelevant year, but I'm not an irrelevant person. Sagittarius' are notoriously confident, independent, and strong willed people and I am definitely not an exception to that rule. You get one day a year that is all about you and you should enjoy every minute of those 24 hours.
26 years ago today, as my mom gave birth to me, the hospital caught on fire. From that moment she probably knew that I would be the coolest person to ever walk this earth as her child (sorry Mike). I grew up in tiaras, crowns, jewels, for every occasion. Going to the grocery store? Queen needs a crown. Fourth of July? Crown for that too. I love(d) being the center of attention and not in a bratty way. In an I'm-amazing-and-the-whole-world-should-be-too way. I love my life and want to spread my love to every one of you readers.
People say "you're one year closer to 30", as if that number is magical and means something significant. Statistically yes, I am one year closer to 30, but every day I am also one day closer to 30. After 25, 30 is the next milestone birthday, but it's not like I'm going to go out of business when I hit 30, if anything I will (hopefully) have my life a little more sorted out than my current situation. But regardless, I still love life.
Today, I am celebrating my birthday in a middle school science classroom. Teaching the youth of America how a little bit of confidence will make you significantly happier in your life. I'm also celebrating my final day on my dad's health insurance.. which is slightly terrifying and also means I'll be living in a bubble until I graduate and get a real job. But regardless of all of the above, I'm celebrating LIFE. Because 26 years ago my mother brought this queen into all of your lives, so today we are celebrating her just as much as we are celebrating myself.
Happy birthday to the queen, let's celebrate my mother, and I hope you all have a fantastic December 3rd.
