|Little Kayspray's birthday at McDonald's|
Happy birthday to me! Today is my 21st which is both scary and exciting at the same time. It doesn't seem 5 minutes ago that I turned 18 but alas, I'm at an even bigger milestone. Or am I? Ooh - here comes the twist in this seemingly celebratory post. Can 21 really be classed as a milestone in the UK? Apparently I'm now a 'real adult' even though I'm a university student who would consider a can of cold baked beans (Heinz of course) to be a suitable dinner. With this question in mind, I did a little research (googled it).
Things you can do when you're 21:
Rent a car abroad
Drink & gamble in the US
Adopt a child
supervise a learner driver
I could get a license to drive a plane
Basically I can do a lot of things I either don't have the money to do or things I'm pretty sure my family & friends would discourage me from doing. Maybe this birthday isn't as exciting as I first thought... I lied it's going to be an amazing birthday. One birthday (photo evidence above), I had my birthday party at McDonald's which I'm pretty sure I enjoyed greatly until the clown decided to pop in. This photo sums up my fear (yes, I was so distraught I managed to get ketchup all over my face). Can it get more exciting than that?
So this birthday won't include a happy meal or a clown - there better not be a clown. I am having a big night out at Uni with the people I care about (sadly not friends from back home). I will be posting a little about it Sunday, including my lovely dress that I'm super happy with! My family are coming to visit on Sunday and I have lots of love and presents from people all around the world. I don't care how important being 21 is - it's my birthday and I'll party if I want to!!
