Today is my birthday.
I'm not very happy with it, I'm turning 30.
I never thought, fifteen years ago for instance, that today my life would what it is. I don't feel like I'm a grown up, I don't think I've met any of my teenage goals and I still don't have any control over my independence and choices because I don't have a steady job or situation that I could hang on to.
I know nowadays people live day to day but I'm old fashioned that way and it bothers me I can't do what I want because I don't have the freedom to do so, at least not in the way I thought I would.
I really hope things change...
The only thing, apart from special people and family, that has never, ever, left me alone is my books. I can count on them to support, cheer and lighten me up.
Any birthday I have must include my passion for reading and my love for my books.
I hope I won't ever loose this.
Today is my birthday but books is the real gift to be celebrating.(Images here and here)
