Go Shawty, It's My Birthday


in 26 hours and 57 minutes (counting down to the actual time i was born), i will be the big 3-0. thirty. thirrrrrty. i know i've talked about it a couple times, in every blog that i write for, and no major breakdowns. okay, there was one. just one and i was okay.

my twenties have been nothing short of a roller-coaster. complete with bad photos of my screaming face at some twists and turns. those photos have been locked up in fort knox or destroyed.
