Last Friday On Earth

This is my last Friday as a 24-year-old.

Believe me, guys, I really could be so much worse about this than I already am.

Seeing as this is the last day before I officially begin dying — no, seriously. My chiropractor told me just the other day that we grow until we're 25 and then just start dying. He admits it takes a long time, at least... but still. That was upsetting. Good thing he's cute as a button and has miracles for hands — I think I'm doing a pretty good job at keeping the crazy under control. I managed to get out of bed and get to work this morning and everything! And I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow and not trying to put it off for as long as possible.

Truth be told, I was way worse on the eve of my 23rd birthday. So, maturity for the win I guess?

Let's please not let the irony of this gif choice escape us here.
So before this optimism wears off and I wake up tomorrow smack-dab in the middle of my twenties, let's ride this good feeling right into the weekend. I'm following Cait's lead again and keeping it simple:

The low of my week was my freak stomach bug or food poisoning or whatever it was that had me up sick in the middle of the night/Tuesday morning but was mysteriously gone within 12 hours. Fun times.

The high of my week was will be tomorrow, I hope! If that's not allowed, I'll say the high was Trivia Tuesday with my two dear friends who constantly amaze me with their love, compassion, and support. And, if I may, that ties with yesterday's running victory where I beat a time goal I set for myself for March and pushed every bit of everything I had out and it. felt. incredible. 

A link I loved this week was this AMAZING roundup of every joke told on The Office, organized by year (via Cup of Jo). Go search any year!

My plans for the weekend include an attempt at a nice 5-mile run {let's hope the rain isn't too bad!}, getting a much-needed haircut, and birthday dinner with a few favorites tomorrow, followed by a busy Sunday {which contains that secret* I can't wont yet reveal!} 

*Please don't get too excited. You probably won't care. I feel like I'm setting you up for a let-down. Honestly this is only really a big deal to me and maybe like one other person in the world who probably isn't even reading this blog. I never should have mentioned it. But now that I have, I gotta see it through to the end. I should stop talking now. 

{Be sure to check back over here tomorrow for a 
very special self-indulgent 25th birthday post!}


Now then — I'm ready to link up with Miss Whitney and #backthatazzup into my b'day weekend with this completely un-birthday-related ditty that I can't stop singing this week and you can't tell me not to because it's my birthday and I'll break the rules that I just made up myself if I want to.
