(Todays two songs of the day)
I’m 19 today and I feel the same as yesterday. Turning 19 for a Canadian is a big thing; you can legally buy alcohol and cigarettes. Yet- For a Canadian studying in England makes it seem like turning 19 is just another number. Though once I hit 20, I’ll be half way to 40 years of age. Which makes me shocked that I’m only going to be a teenager for one more year.
I’ve learned a lot in the last 19 years. Which makes me notice how much I still have yet to learn.
Things I’ve accomplished in my life:
- Learned to play piano, flute, violin
- Speak fluent English and Polish (with a tad of Spanish)
- Went to great schools
- Left Ontario to go to Manchester to study Law
- Share a flat with my brother
- Made friends for life
- Travelled parts of the world
That list seems rather short. Makes me feel both happy that I have accomplished things that some people never have the chance to learn/do and at the same time I feel like I haven’t made a mark in this world.
Who knows what will happen in the years to come but all i know is that I’m grateful for everything.
To those who are born today: Happy birthday.
Put a smile on your face and embrace life.
