Mushroom Pie and Becoming An Adult.
This Thursday was my half-birthday, and since Matt’s away in the desert I decided to spoil myself.
So I made pancakes for breakfast. And made a mushroom pie for lunch. And ate more pie for dinner. And then ice-cream. And chocolate for dessert.
It was delicious, and the pastry was perfect! I can’t believe I’ve been so scared of making pastry, it’s easy!
I’ve never celebrated a half-birthday before, but this year it just felt like something I should do. It meant that it’s 6 months until I’m 25, and 25 feels so scary (I know that if you’re older than 25 you’re rolling your eyes at me right now, that’s ok, roll away, I think I felt like this when I was 19 too). 25 feels like an adult, and I’m not really ready to be an adult yet, adults don’t spend the weekends playing video games and eating twisties, adults exercise to be healthy, even if they don’t enjoy exercising, and adults aren’t scared of getting a bus. So I decided to spoil myself on my half-birthday and then really concentrate on getting healthy, physically and mentally, by the time I’m 25. Because by then, I will be an adult.
Or at least a healthier and happier late-age-teenager.
