As of today I’ve knocked off the second decade of my life. As usual, things don’t feel any different, even though I’m officially no longer a teenager. I still can’t drink in this country, but everywhere else I was already quite legal.
I can remember back when I was 10, everyone at St. Ann’s (my K-5 scholastic experience) invited everyone else to their birthday party by default. Xavier’s party was all about Mortal Kombat II on Sega CD, Graham Johnson’s had X-Men on regular Sega Genesis, and Mike Miller’s party was some Chuck E. Cheese’s-like place…with videogames too. I totally took it for granted back then that these kinds of group parties wouldn’t happen later.
