16 Going On 17

I remember last year turning 16 was hard for me. I didn’t feel ready to be sixteen, since there are so many responsibilities I should take and so many things I have to do on my own.

Now, I’m 17 and I can’t believe how fast time flies by. But I love it. I love how this year has passed me by; fast, but joyful. A year I’ve learned more about myself than I could have the 15 years before. I’ve got my family, my ambitions and dreams. But most of all, I have my friends. They didn’t forget about me and have constantly made me feel there’s no one else who could replace me.

Today is my birthday and I could not be more content and happy.

I woke up at the sound of my cell-phone, because my friend had sent me a text-message saying happy birthday.
My other friend had called me just now and we chatted for ten minutes, saying she’s sorry she can’t come over.
My mother gave me a purple pashmina for my birthday, when I told her I needed a new scarf without even considering her buying me anything for my birthday.

Finally, I know, I´m fucking lucky.
