My 21st birthday is coming up slowly but surely, and being 21 is something strange, but cool. You are classed as an adult internationally. I can drink, drive, gamble and smoke anywhere in the world. Although I don't, but the opportunity is there. I am excited and anxious at the same time, being 21 comes with a huge weight on your shoulders, your nearly finishing university and will need to find a graduate job soon. Joining the real world leaving behind a kind of naivety I would surely miss.

Reality check.

Being 21 means there will be a big party or at least for me anyways! And with a big party comes gifts, not like I need anything, but if I wanted something it would be from the list below: 

Here is my 2017 21st Birthday Wish List!!
