18th Birthday

Yes, those are Farley's Rusks - i absolutely love them. Just me? Thought so.

Yesterday, I turned 18 and I had the most wonderful day. I was spoilt with lots of keepsakes, cards, English chocolate and jewels that will last me a lifetime. In the morning some of my extended family and boyfriend visited for a few hours, I then went for a haircut, skyped all my loved ones that live in Blighty and then my Mum, Step-Dad, boyfriend and I went out for dinner at one of the restaurants in my town. I had an amazing day and i'm so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life (even if half of them are on the other side of the world!) 

I didn't wake up feeling any different as an 'adult' (i say 'adult' because I still can't cross roads properly, I fully commit to a sprint when spotting an ice-cream van and i will always find fart jokes funny) but I guess it's kind of a wake-up call for me, i've realised that i really can make whatever I want out of my life. I can also buy my own alcohol and legally hit da clubs, which is just as important. Guess who's excited for the weekend!

P.S. How amazing is the cake my mum baked me!
P.P.S. Yes, I did sing the first few lines of In Da Club by 50 Cent for the majority of the day.

Did i regret it?
Not one bit.

I think that what you posted was very reasonable. But,
think on this, what if you added a little information?
I am not saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added
something that grabbed a person's attention? I mean "18th Birthday" is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers interested.
You might add a video or a related pic or two to
get readers interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
I had to tell someone!
