Tomorrow is my birthday...

Tomorrow is my birthday...

and I will be 24. This whole week has felt weird and awkward, like I'm in-between ages (which I am). I feel kind of indifferent about my inevitably soon birthday. I'm not yet fearing that I'm "too old" and I'm also not self-conscious about being "too young." Birthdays don't mean much to me anymore. They were much more fun when I was little. Sometimes I wish I were small again and didn't have to deal with "adult" things. Author Sandra Cisneros has a short story, "Eleven," about birthdays that I always think about when mine comes along. She says that we are not only our current age, but all the ages beneath as well.
