21 – Wow I’m old!

I'm turning 21 on the 1st April – and that’s not a joke.

So I had a big party for my 18th and I’m doing a similar thing for my 21st but after this one I can imagine my celebrations will probably die down.
Therefore, I need to make the most out of this one!

Event no.1 = With all of my University friends I am going to Brighton for the weekend to get thoroughly smashed and party on the beach!

We're staying in a seafront hostel where we've hired a 9 bed dorm for the Saturday night, so getting ready there and then taking a short stroll along the beach to the clubs.
We will probably hit a number of bars before making our way to Digital where we will party the night away! Excited is an understatement.

Event no.2 = On the actual day my boyfriend and my mum are getting the train down together from Northampton (my home town) to spend the day with me doing touristy things which I am so excited about! The loveliest thing about Christiano (the boyfriend) is that he gets on with my family so well! It’s like he’s always been a part of our crazy gang (well, it has been nearly 6 years)!

Event no.3 = In the evening my mum is taking me to see The Book of Mormon. We have both been yearning to see this show ever since it came to London. My step-mum has seen it and told me about one scene where there is an ensemble tap routine and mid-way through the lights go off and about 30 seconds later when they come back on there has been a costume change whilst they were still tap dancing! It is going to be unreal!

Event no.4 = Party! This is the main event – save the best till last!
It starts at 7 with a buffet and jazz band, now that I’m old I have to do sophisticated events like this, but then from 9 onwards it turns into a generic 21st party. I like having it split into two like this because it means my grandparents and distant relatives can come for the beginning and my friends can come for the evening. There’s nothing worse than running around trying to chat to everyone at your own event and never really having any fun.

I think it’s safe to say that this birthday is going to be EPIC!

Love being a student and love being young! I hope turning 21 doesn’t mean the start of early nights, family cars and socks and sandals!
