Turning 27 | Mixed Feelings and Mixed Drinks

It's my birthday! I am now officially 27 years old and feeling absolutely devastated about it. I feel like my life is just flying by without any real meaning to it. I'm definitely feeling like I need to time travel backwards a few years and start again! Whew, I'm off to a depressing start, aren't I? Lets focus on the positives.

I got my nails done yesterday, specially for my birthday. I wanted some nail art but she couldn't do it, so I just left with plain black nails. I was a bit gutted but I also didn't feel very well so I was desperate to get home rather than faff about trying to figure out something else. Although I would have gone for a different base colour if we'd known from the start the art couldn't be done!

I'm off to the cinema this morning with Josh, his brother and his girlfriend! We're going to watch Black Adam. I vaguely remember watching the trailer for it a few months ago but I can't remember what it's about so I hope I enjoy it! After that, I'll be getting ready for dinner and drinks with my friends from work. I'm literally so excited about it, I can't wait to get dolled up and drunk! I will definitely be mixing my drinks and having the hangover from hell. 

I am feeling really grateful for how far I've come this year. I've had some rocky moments with my mental health but I feel like I've been coping so much better. I did at one point try calling my GP for help, to no avail, so I've had to manage myself. It's been hard but I've noticed improvements! 

I bought a whole damn house since my last birthday?? Well, Josh bought it, but my name is on the mortgage too and I'm paying bills! That's close enough for me. It got to a point where I thought we'd be living with his parents for at least another year so to be a homeowner before I turned 27 was a dream come true.

While I was looking through my old posts for inspiration for this post, I discovered my 26 by 26 bucket list. I had completely forgotten all about it but I'm pleased to say I've crossed off another 6 items over the last year! 

I honestly don't know how to feel right now. I feel like everything and nothing has changed all at once. I still feel like the same person I was last year or even a few years ago, but I've changed jobs, made friends and bought a house since then. I can't quite put my finger on it! I've accomplished a lot but nothing at the same time. 

Anybody know what I mean?

Until next time,
Saph x
