Hi friends, today i’m 22. It makes me feel really old being past the point of 21, even though it means very little in reality.
It makes me think that when I was 14 or 15 I wondered where I would be at this point. It’s safe to say I’ve accomplished very little in that period of time, but as a person I’ve grown into a well rounded, mature man. That in itself is something to be hugely proud of, and health permitting I’ll be on this bizarre world long enough to accomplish as many goals as I set for myself, both short term and long term.
My awesome younger brother literally gave me his bank card and told me to buy what I wanted. I bought myself a decent quality snowball usb microphone, as well as a cheeky pop filter for it too. It doesn’t fit my super limited setup right now, but I’m hoping to be able to get my computer up and fixed soon enough.
So in a week or so I’m planning to keep pursuing my hobby of recording songs and working on my voice, as well as my own tracks. A little multi-track recording and harmonizing maybe? As you can probably tell, I’m pretty excited by that. The longer term goal of the microphone idea is to use it to vlog and record skype conversations during League of Legends games and add to my current blogging expedition of content. It’ll be a total learning curve with recording, editing and so on. But it’s something that I want to accomplish, and I’m going to. It’ll lead me somewhere, regardless of the crazy path my life could take one way or another.
Here’s to another year, may the odds forever be in your favour. May I grow older, maybe grow better facial hair this year and find the happiness that I’m still seeking in my 22nd year on this daft Earth.
Happy Birthday, Callum! I know I’ve only known you for a few months but I really wanted to wish you the best day ever. I think from the time you were 14 to now, even if it seems as though you haven’t done much, the growth you’ve experienced has been tremendous and worthy of praise. People have such a misconception about what it is to have “made it” in life. Like I’ve always said, you don’t need to have made it financially or educationally successful. What your main focus in life should be is pure happiness. You MUST be happy with yourself before everything else falls into play. Loving who you are will lead you to the dreams you seek. Loving who you are will give you the strength and motivation to follow your dreams. Just please, be happy. Stop worrying. Just live. That’s all I try to do myself and it’s all I want to show the world. You are worth every want and need. Someday, you’re going to get there and you will prove me right. From all zeeee way from Boston, Massachusetts I’m sending you a phenomenally large hug and positive vibes to my favorite Brit. Happy birthday, friend.
Thanks Lara. My facebook didn’t actually tell anyone it was my birthday this year, which as much as I enjoyed the peace I kinda felt unloved!
You’ve made up for it in one post. I’m lucky to have found such a lovely, genuine person across the world!
I’ll prove you right for sure, I can promise you that 🙂
I hope everything’s great on your side of the pond
Wait, our birthdays are two years and a day apart? Happy freaking birthday! Taylor Swift wrote a horrible, horrible song about being 22. Growing up sucks, but living life doesn’t. I hope you had a marvelous day!
A very happy belated birthday to you! Very small world huh 🙂 Amen though, have a drink on me. Even if it’s a little late! xx
