I'm usually that type of person that freaks out tremendously before birthdays, and this year was no exception.
Having people say "this is your last teen year" didn't help.
But when the day finally came, I didn't really see it as a big deal anymore. All I knew was that I had a really sweet time with my two best friends and my dear family. I couldn't have asked for anything else, really.
As I look back, I am happy to see what I had accomplished as an 18 year old.
And now I'm just as excited to see what 19 has to offer.
