[Life] Improvement

Ahh, now this is going to be a good day. I had only just gotten out of bed by this time yesterday; today I've gotten up and around, had breakfast, gone to the bank, and called four apartment buildings attempting to make appointments. See, kipperton and I are thinking of moving in together once he graduates from high school.

Dear god, my little brother is about to graduate from high school. And sannalim just asked about birthdays (in a friend-locked post), which reminded me that I'm turning 21 in February. Twenty-one. What the crap happened here? Last thing I remember I was a spazzy little teenager barely done with high school! Now I'm about to be legally considered an adult?

Well, my birthday isn't for over a month now, so I'll save the disbelief for when the day approaches. Right now I'm going to get some lunch, then call a few more apartment buildings and see how many appointments I can rack up.

One last item: I've decided to start recording when I add people to my LJ friends list, because otherwise I always forget where I found them. And this way people who suddenly see me on their "friend of" list can find out where the heck I came from. ^_^ So this morning I added sheeplass and fishsupreme, because I saw her comment on stroum's journal and found that they were a really cute couple.

You're hardly ancient. Now me, on the other hand...

I think it's cool that you and your brother get along well enough to be able to live together voluntarily.

Really? I hadn't guessed you to be much older than I am. How old are you, if I may ask?

Yeah, every so often it surprises me that we get along so well. When we were in grade and middle school, we were constantly arguing and fighting. (I remember fondly the time he punched one of my loose teeth out. We never even found it; Mom thought I must have swallowed it.) I can't really pinpoint when we started being able to tolerate each other, but nowadays I always enjoy seeing him. We've both matured, I guess.

I'm much too close to the big 3-0 for my liking. But I refuse to let age mature me! Or something.

*grin* Good attitude to have. I firmly believe that becoming an adult is (or should be) about learning how to be mature, when to be mature, and when not to be.

Blackjack!

I think I'll save my commments about turning twenty-one for your birthday. ;)

Good luck finding a new pad. I'm glad that you get along well enough with your brother to allow it. :)

I am a winning hand! Only that just sounds weird.

I look forward to seeing them. ~_^

Thanks for the well wishes. He's coming up here Friday afternoon, and we're going to see a few places before I work Saturday. So if we're lucky, we could have a place locked in before the week is out!

If it makes you feel any better, you were legally considered an adult at 18. :P

(I'm curious if you remember how you found my journal. ^^;)
