This is the last day of my 49th year, the last day of my fourth decade, the last day of my first half century, but I like to think of it as looking forward to the rest of my life, the initial first days of my second half century. The last 50 years have been all about school but from 11am tomorrow school is officially over and I get to go out and kick ass (even more). and yes, I’m in Barcelona because for the last 25 years I’ve wanted to visit the Sagrada Família so we celebrated my birthday on Monday and now I’m doing what I like to do most, write and explore :)
I asked my mother, Doris, the other day about turning 50 and she says it was sooo long ago she’s forgotten most of it, I asked her how she celebrated it and she said she doesn’t even remember, all she remembers recently is meeting this wonderful man called Bob and marrying him a few years ago.
Well, when I get to 84 I hope I remember I was visiting Barcelona!
I came across this website yesterday, http://futureme.org (thank you Amanda ) and I’ve decided to write a few emails to myself, I know I’ve wrote other emails to my previous self but thought I might do it through a proper channel this time and it will be interesting to see how close I am and how far off I am, will resist trying to tell future self what to do. Mostly. Watch this space.
This is a screengrab of my phone, yes, it’s true, I do have Domo on my phone too, he INSISTED.. but I just want to mark down this time in my life, a day never to be repeated, just like every other day ;)
