So today's my birthday! 26 years old! Damn! I'm more than a quarter of a century old lol!
What's the big thing about birthdays? I don't really find the 29th of november any different from any other day (except for presents^^).
Each day is the first day of the rest of your life right?
On the 29 th of novemebr am I suddenly older? I don't think so.
The 29 of November my mother did undergo and achieve the hard, painful and tiring trial of childbirth. I think it should be she, and not I, that should be remembered and congratulated on this day.
One question that people always seem to ask on your birthday is : 'well how does it feel to be X years old?' Well really no different from yesterday when I was 'one year younger'!
The only birthday that really made a difference for me was my 18th. I passed my driving license the very same day. Being able to drive a car was freedom for me! Since then, I think I've been stuck thinking that I'm still 18...
Anyway, today since it is my birthday, I've decided to share some pics of who I've been and how I've changed over the last quarter of a century!
First typewriter! I didn't have a computer when I was young! No blogging back then!
First time horse riding! I can actually remember that day! I thought the horse looked enormous! Now I see that it was only a small pony...
Holidays in France! What am I doing here with that pan? Catching lizards! Yes, I was the kind of girl that preferred to catch lizards than play with dolls...
Let's move on to teenager years! At the age of 14, I had a really weird boyish style! Good god look at those socks! (I'm on the left). I cut my hair short, liked to wear baggy trousers and caps.
Here we were playing life size table football.
At 18 I got my first car, a red Cordoba. I loved it to bits! I also loved dragons, so a friend of mine painted one on the petrol cap :)
20 years old, geek period! Cut all my hair off again. Spent most of my spare time on computers and playstaion.
Age 22, my first 'real' job was the army!
I heard that kaki was back in fashion... ;)
I only stayed a year in the army... a bad accident made me have to choose another career...
... so I went back to school and studied marketing and quality in wine and spirits!! (Looking bad here! Not much sleep! Hard course!)
And then at age 24 became quality manager in automobile manufacturing in Morocco!
I've always loved animals! I can't live without their company!
|My rats who I shared 3 years with. I miss those cuties so much!|
|My frog, that I called Franck. I had him for 7 years... little did I know at that time that my future husband's name would also be Franck... When we first met he was not very impressed when I told him that I had a pet frog with the same name as him!|
I've always loved outdoor sports...
...and I've always loved to travel...
...discover new places...
I don't mind living in a car or van to go on adventures...
... And I've always liked trying new exciting things, like driving speed boats or planes
I've always been a bit crazy...
...and over the years, in all the places I have lived, I have met wonderful people (who put up with my craziness!)
Well that's about it!
I'm 26, and very grateful for all the things I've had a chance to do over the years.
...but I still ask my magic ball advice when i'm having a hard time deciding on something! ;)
Will post about more interesting subjects soon!
Have a great day!!
