Alright, y'all... here it is. The final installment of the three-poem series that won me the Senior Poetry Contest in 2007. I know you're probably dying of anticipation.

Tomorrow is my birthday, and I will be 25 years old. Yay, happy birthday to me! I'll be able to rent a car! And get cheaper car insurance! It'll be a really exciting automotive year, no doubt about it. Also, though... at 25, I will officially be (if I haven't been already) in my "mid 20s." I will have… Continue reading Birthday tomorrow, quarterlife crisis today.
