old lady pudge

so i was in my patternmaking class yesterday and i had the following conversation with a girl in my class...

girl: my birthday is in may (she was talking to another girl and i interrupted)
me: mine is too, what day is yours?
girl: the fourth
me: oh, mine is the fourteenth, precious.
girl: i'll be twenty-one, how old will you be?
me: i'll be twenty-three.
girl: what?! (in a shocked voice)
everyone around us: wait, you're how old????
me: i'm twenty-two right now but i'll be twenty-three in may.
everyone around us: seriously? wow.
girl: well, you look really good!
me: thank you...?

you look really good? since when were almost-twenty-three-year-olds supposed to look aged and ancient? i have never felt so old in my entire life. mind you probably half of the girls in my class are married and apparently a lot younger than almost-twenty-three.

on a somewhat related note...my half birthday is on saturday and i love presents. just gonna put it out there.

this comment seriously depresses me seeing how I am already 23 and counting. I think girls at BYU are supposed to stay in the 19-21 range whereas guys can range from 21-27.

haha! i feel ya. the other day i was with some people and they were talking about the reasons they didn't like a particular girl, one of them being: "she's 23 and she's still doing her undergrad!!" i was like...umm i'm 23 and still doing my undergrad?? is it really THAT weird?? come on people!

Wow seriously, that is the one thing I strongly dislike about Provo. If you're over 21 & not married there is like something wrong with you. Like you're OLD. Weird. I don't like it. Dumb girl. I just turned 24 & I'm not married so I must be an old hag. Wtf?

Did you get any half birthday presents? Because if you did that would be cool. I had a friend who would get a half birthday cake & part of a present on her half birthday. I think it's cool. Half birthdays should totally be celebrated!
