Today, I turned 21, and WOW, a lot has happened!
For starters, last night, I passed my driving test, and I’ll be getting my actual license tomorrow, so I’m definitely counting that as a birthday gift. It’s been a long time coming, and even though it was hard, I’m really proud of myself for finally getting it done!
Second, I got to spend today in my PJs, and my cake was a cookie cake instead of a cake cake!
Yes, it was a very good cookie cake, and yes, all day in PJs was amazing. What can I say? I like a good lazy day, and with all my friends either working or living across the country, there wasn’t much of a chance of being social. This was a nice way to spend it.
I also got some really wonderful gifts. One of my best friends found the CUTEST bunny earrings, plus some amazing fandom stuff, and my siblings got me some more props for my bookstagram, which was so nice of them. My sister made sure to get some cute fake butterflies for me, since I really like butterflies!
But easily best of all, my parents found the money to order the Magic and Mayhem Illumicrate box that’s all VE Schwab content, and I CAN’T WAIT TO GET IT. It’s going to have an exclusive cover of Vengeful, and more than ten items centered around Schwab’s work. It’s a dream come true, especially because I didn’t know if my parents were going to be able to afford it, especially with the hefty shipping tag to get it to the US, since Illumicrate is UK based. But it’s real! It’s happening! And it’s supposed to ship as close to the September release of Vengeful as possible, so I’m probably going to be counting down the days until it arrives. It’s the perfect present, and I’m over the moon about it!
All in all, it’s been a really great birthday, and even though I didn’t read any books like I thought I was going to, I had a relaxing day, which I really needed, and I have late September to look forward to with my whole heart. ♥
