22 in 22:

1. Celebrating my birthday with my best friend that I hadn't seen in over a decade...
2. ...while in Minnesota - the state I grew up in and had not been back for the same amount of time 
3. Working as an editorial intern at a women's online magazine and realizing that while having a knack for writing, working in that company wasn't something I wanted. 
4. Having the chance to work as a translator for a Guinness World Record Adjudicator and witness two record attempts - one failure and one success. 
5. Falling for an amazing guy and then coming to terms with the fact that I'm queen of bad timing. 
6. Coming to London and discovering the field that I really want to study. 
7. Having amazing flatmates.
9. Celebrating Christmas with a homemade meal with the flat.  
10. Having the opportunity to go to a boat party and realizing that they're only cool in theory. 
11. Getting to watch David Tennant in Richard II twice (once from the second row!)
12.  Getting a photo and a quick chat involving sex shops with David
13. Watching Tom Hiddleston and Hadley Fraser in Coriolanus
14. Getting to meet Hadley and have a long chat with him after the play. 
15. Trekking across London and visiting Speedy's Cafe, St. Bart's and other places where they filmed Sherlock.
16. Finding the best dimsum place in London. 
17. Going to Hadley's concert...
18. And Hadley remembering my name when I went to talk to him afterwards. 
19.  Travelling to Edinburgh, Paris, Belgium and around England. 
20. Long nights of self-therapy sessions with my girl up in Edinburgh. 
21. taking 'subgenre of a dream' seriously and starting 'remember, turn left' 
22. all of you guys! 

I never really dread my birthday. In fact, most years I'm too busy to remember it's actually the anniversary of the day I was born on the actual day. That is until someone shouts the two words at me and shove a present in my face. No complaints there. 

But this year, I was really dreading today - mostly because 22 was an amazing year and a tough act to follow. 23 has a lot to live up to - no pressure! 

With love, Daphne x
