How being 27 is just like being 26

My birthday is at midnight (whaddup Cancers!) and really, it’s like, no big thing. I have to wake up and go to work still and then I’ll go to dinner and then I’ll drink beer. Most things will not change. But, like all of us, we hope for a better year ahead. 27 things about being 27:

  1. Yes, I will still get carded. I will forever get carded.
  2. I will have a better apartment.
  3. I will be able to cart my ass around in my new car.
  4. I will probably maintain the same weight, but will always wish it was lower.
  5. I’ll get crushes on boys I shouldn’t.
  6. I will pay all of my bills on time.
