    Today, I am now a vicenarian. In other words, I turn 20 years old today. So I am no longer a teenager and my childhood is now totally a thing of the distant past. Yes, I am now truly an adult, and more so than when I turned 18. When I turned 18, I thought that was a major milestone in life, to which it was so. However, I was still a teen and denarian (10-19 year old), and had yet to be recognized as a full-fledged adult by society and myself, and not just the law.

    Now that I am 20, I look ahead to where life may take me and the role I will have in society. Especially since I am now also finishing my second year of college. I now have to take course of all the adult tasks that I’m obligated to undertake, such as: apply for work, enhance my money handling skills, pay income taxes, get my driver’s license so I can start driving on my own and no longer rely on car pooling, make plans to move out of my parents house, be as completely as independent as possible, and much more obligated responsibilities.

    Some would argue that 20 is insignificant compared to 21, since 21 is the age for new adult privileges, which include drinking and gambling. From my perspective, the freedoms gained at 21 are just the fun aspects of vicenarian status, whereas at 20 were faced with the responsible aspects of vicenarian status. In other words, drinking and gambling privileges are something gain after one year of vicenarian status. At least, that’s my opinion, especially since the wait for those privileges have now been reduced to only one year. :) 

    Now that I am 20, I really need to get a head-on grip on life and steer in the direction I desire for it to go. Someday, I will become a best selling author and work at a pleasant library, which are my goals for the future. For now, I celebrate my birthday of making it two decades! Like any birthday, this one will be a fun day to look back on and remember. Who knows, now that I’m a vicenarian, maybe with a little luck and a lot of good health & family genetics, I may actually make it to becoming a centenarian (100 year old) too. So for now...it’s time to party like it’s 2999! :D

    Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! :) 

    I had an awesome 20th birthday. I got to spend time with family & friends, serve my delicious green, lime-flavored, Cthulhu cupcakes, eat a scrumptious ice cream cake with cotton candy flavored ice cream & vanilla cake, and have pizza for dinner (though I originally wanted salmon instead). I even have some pretty cool presents on their way, including a camcorder, Godzilla DVDs, and a Cthulhu hand puppet. While waiting for those, I've purchased a Decepticons t-shirt and both Cloverfield and the third season of Beast Wars on DVD with my birthday money.

    Being 20 rocks! These past few days have been a great start off for my 20's. Even though I still can't buy alcohol, I just look at the positive side...only one year left!:D :drunk 

    P.S. Lols at General Magnus' and smangerbot's posts.:lol
