It was my birthday over the weekend so I’m now officially 21. That means I can d rink legally in the US! Which, I guess, is exciting. 21 is a really big deal for Americans because of the whole drinking thing, but coming from the UK 21 isn’t such a big deal. I also don’t really drink that much, so being able to drink legally isn’t a huge thing (it’s still exciting though!).
Being the super cool person I am, I spent my birthday with my 80 year old grandmother. One of the other people in my lab was actually a little mean about it, and wouldn’t stop laughing. It did kind of upset me actually. Nevertheless I had a great time with my grandmother. We went out for a couple of nice meals and we also went to see a Cirque de Soleil performance, which was a lot fo fun. For those of you who don’t know what they are, theey’re a little like a circus but they do much more daring acrobatic type things. There are people jumping off trapezes and catching another one coming towards them, tightrope walking and carrying someone else on a chair. The whole thing makes me a bit anxious, but overall it was a lot of fun. The whole weekend was great, and I still can't believe im 21!
