“Nobody likes you when you’re 23…”
I’ve been kinda, sorta waiting to say that iconic blink-182 line for 10 years until it applied to me and well, here we are. Today is the day I turn twenty-three years old.
The idea of my birthday has always been something to be stoked about –at least until now– for me. With a little exception last year where I was nowhere near excited as turning 21 or even so, as excited as I am for being 23. My best companion for the last few years has been music. I’ve grown closer and fonder with tons of new and old bands and I have many more yet to discover.
Today I want to celebrate, I want to be happy about turning a year older and –maybe– a little wiser. I curated a playlist with exactly twenty-three songs, each of one which remind me about a time in my still short life, and the ones I want to keep close to myself this year, as a reminder, as a message to keep on going and enjoying this little adventure called life 🙂
Here’s to being twenty-three!
