July 17, 2011 will be my twenty-first birthday. I got to spend my 20th birthday in South Africa and had originally planned to spend m 21st in India. Since that's not happening (check out "India", posted on May 20, 2011), I need to figure something else out.

There have been two ideas thrown around:

  • Vegas 
    • Cliche? Maybe. But I do love Vegas. And I love cliches just as much.
  • Disneyland
    • It's like the opposite of a "grown up" place, so it's just as much of a cliche. Also, I love Disney a whole heck of a lot. 
As I was brushing my teeth tonight (literally, like 7 minutes ago, hence the post at 2am on a work night), another idea came to me of what I want to do. 

On my 20th birthday, I decided that I wanted this decade to be one that I spent loving people and loving Jesus. I wanted to be excited and be surrounded with people that love and support me and I want other people to know that I love and support them. 

So, sticking with cliches. I want to do at least 21 things for other people on my birthday. What those things look like or would be, I have yet to come up with (hey, you can help with that!), but that's what I want to do. Now, I can do that in California or Nevada (or elsewhere), sooo the "where" is still up in the air I suppose. 

I fear being 21 for so many reasons. But this idea excites me. I hope you can be excited with me and perhaps even partake in helping me accomplish this. (Talk about a great birthday gift!)

I realize this wasn't very explanatory, but give me a break--I have been up for almost 20 hours and just got this idea and haven't been able to think it through! 


  1. Great idea! Being me, I vote for Disneyland, especially since it is also DL's birthday. If you are there, I recommend collecting extra FastPasses and giving them to someone who looks like a newbie. :)

  2. I just realized that TODAY is your birthday. I hope you're having your best day ever!
