Gawd! 20?

Well, (yay! I broke the "Okay" jinx) my 20th birthday is almost 2 months away. 20, damn it!! Okay (And, here I go again. *sigh*), please don't take me wrong here, but, 20!! Ain't that old?? I mean, it's the beginning of the downhill journey as far as health is concerned as they say. It's the beginning of laugh lines and wrinkles and black spots and pains in the asses (read: responsibilities, real-grown-up behaviour) and the end of -"I'm just a teenager-I'm supposed to be like this" or "I can't concentrate on my studies because I'm suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), you see..which is a pretty common adolescent problem. Absolutely normal." - excuses, stuff toys and barbie dolls as birthday presents (That was a pun. Seriously, I'm so not gonna miss that one!) and lame jokes.

Now, that is why I never wanted to turn 19!! Because after 19 comes 20, then 30 and then 45!!
OMG! Almost 5 years from now, I might even be married!

Anyway, it's not something I can change, right? So, here are things that I want to change about me (with effect from my 20th birthday):

1. I weel finish my home-work on ta-eem: Remember when you were small, in 5th grade and you purposefully forgot to finish your home-work and your teacher made you write this line with your tiny little hands over 100 times? Well, my teacher left long ago. But she left a substitute - the scruples of my conscience. So, I'm going to do everything I know I should do, and yet, I don't because I'm plain lazy and I'll do everything on time.

2. Lessen the amount of cribbing and self-pitying: Okay..I mean..I'll try. Really, I will.

3. Waste lesser time on the internet: Of course, this is subject to T&C (Read: This applies only when I'm not depressed and have better things to do).

4. Ah, whatever!: Okay, I'm really tired of listing this now!

Awwww....the memory of turning 20 is still fresh in my mind...unfortunately so. :(

My thoughts were exactly the same as yours, but you know what, I don't think it'll really matter all that much. In all probability, you are still going to remain the person that you are (in essence, at least). Except of course as you have mentioned, you'll have to worry about wrinkles, not being able to use "But I'm just a kid!!" excuse anymore, getting married(eventually)...all right, I'll stop. :D lol
