So Long, Farewell

22, I never really cared for you.
You sent me away to become someone new,
And I didn't really care to do what you wanted me to.

22, you weren't particularly that fun,
A year full of heartbreaks, realities, and then some.
Looking back on my years trials as a whole,
You've done way too much to leave me feeling dull.

22, is it really true,
That I'm no longer a student going to BYU,
And I have to grow up and do something new?

22, why did you ship me off to the east coast?
I always thought the west coast would be my residing host?
You've rudely awakened me to the realities of life,
And caused me to go through some unnecessary strife.

23 will be better, leaving behind my past pain.
Only to show the east coast I can rule and reign,
But not in a way that will cause me to be feign,
And not rightly so, if it leaves me feeling vain.

Well 22...
...you and I are finally through.
23, I hope you can inherently see,
That I need you to take extra good care of me.

23 is going to kick-ass! Sorry for the French.. but it's true! Happy birthday! And there was nothing special about 22... so I agree, here's to a better life as 23-year-olds.

Happy Birthday! I love Imogen Heap. Also, I like Frou Frou, the band she was the lead singer for. I think they only had one album.

I was 23 when I graduated from college. And life sucked for awhile... but then it got better... and just kept getting better. Hang on little sister, life is generally what you make of it.
