I'll be twenty tomorrow; I know I'm growing up!

it's true. tomorrow is my birthday. and that will mark two decades of life. it feels really significant to me (is that weird?), like a major accomplishment. i think i can feel my mindset changing already, which might seem lame because really you don't feel like you change when your "age" number changes. but it seems like a really big deal. if i try to put my finger on it, i think it has to do with having made it through high school, growing and maturing and really becoming "allie spencer", turning out alright; i know who i am, i have some pretty good ideas as to who i want to be. things are good. i am happy. i am blessed. and the Lord (and time in general) is moving me into a cool new stage of life - legit adulthood. i'm ready. i am excited to face all the challenges, decisions, tasks, milestones, drama, fun times, and cool things that are going to come my way in this decade. but 20, ya, i can feel it. and i think it looks good on me. it feeeeels good on me.

(my rents have expressed no emotion on the subject but i wonder if it weirds them out that i'm 20. helllo?! mom never admits to this kind of stuff except in backwards ways, i'll get it out of her.)

here's to two more amazing and blessed decades of life!

:)



When I saw you there tonight
And I remember when this started
It seems just like yesterday
Empty handed, open hearted
Now I see you standing here
Say you're jaded all this year
Things you don't feel like you're learning
But if I won't find you returning here

'Cause I'll be twenty tomorrow I know I'm growing up,
I'm just wond'ring when it is I'll feel I am old enough

As I write this song to you
My words are hours from your ears
But upon my close inspection
The situation does appear
That we're both now stuck in college
Stuck in classes we don't follow
But this is ours to make the best of
But don't you worry 'bout the rest of things


'Cause I'll be twenty tomorrow I know I'm growing up,
And I'm just wond'ring when it is I'll feel I am old enough

It's like a quiz with no wrong answers
Nothing I can say seems right
It's so hard to take these chances
When there aren't second tries

I'll be twenty tomorrow I know I'm growing up,
And I'm just wond'ring when it is I'll feel I am old enough


It's like a quiz with no wrong answers
Nothing I can say seems right
It's so hard to take these chances
When there aren't second tries
