today I'm eighteen


Seventeen: it's been hectic, amazing, way-too-fast, dramatic, and very, very long. I'm finally eighteen. I've waited a long time for this.


I slept in and then ate a donut (from my brother Daniel) first thing. And we're having cinnamon rolls for breakfast. It promises to be a good day. : )
