But I will tell you one thing- if you want to meet a true free-spirit, go to a music festival. There, you will meet the guy dressed in cargo pants with a sewed-on cat tail, a topless girl sitting on someone’s shoulders and swaying to Young the Giant, the shirtless stoner, the hippy giving away free hugs, and the guy with dreads passed out in the middle of the empty field.- I’m telling you, these sights may cause you to reconsider the definition.
Happy 23rd Birthday to the kid who showed up to his first college Halloween apartment party dressed-up as Baby Batman. The punk whose past-time is taking double-chin photos of me and texting them to everyone he knows. The kid whose favorite song used to be “Disturbia,” and who used to dance to it freely-by himself and under the strobe lights in a certain Roanoke Street fraternity house basement. The kid who at the same time, managed to graduate college with honors, and now gets paid more than I do. You suck, but I’m proud of you.
I know it’s not normal to share a birthday with a non-twin sibling, but it’s the only normal I have ever known. And if there is one thing that I’ve learned over the years, it is that the only thing better than free alcohol on your birthday, is being able to share the day with one of your best friends. 🙂 love you, B. cheers to us and Flag Day!
Happy birthday to the best sister I could ask for 🙂 Cheers to turning twenty and to many more years of shenanigans. You are going to do big things, I know it! ❤

Stretch. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives- some of the most interesting 40 year- olds I know still don’t….
some much needed inspiration this morning.
