|Look how much I've grown!|
I thought about it, and I think it is because 27 is now in the late 20s, while 26 was in the mid-20s. Regardless, I don't feel any different, and I never have after a birthday, but it is still kind of crazy to think about.
In my life, I've witnessed some pretty crazy events. When I was a kid, we had a computer, but only because my grandpa is a computer guru. My Grandpa is now in his 70s. Most 70-year-olds struggle to turn on a computer. My grandfather still builds and repairs them. He is the only person I know that if your computer completely crashes, he can restore the lost information. He owns a computer store, so we always had the latest technology at our house. Many of my friends who are my same age didn't have computers until they were a little older.
We didn't have internet in school until at least late middle school to early junior high school. I remember in 4th grade, if we didn't want to go outside because it was below zero, we could stay inside and play typing games on the computer. I attribute this to the fact that I can type at a fairly decent rate now.
When I was a kid, our military was not at war (that I knew of). In High School, I witnessed the attacks on the Twin Towers, and saw our country go to war. That was a pretty intense time period.
In my short life, a lot of things have happened, but life has gone on. There have been scary times, crazy times, and downright awesome times. I'm grateful that I was able to come to this earth and to meet so many wonderful people. For those of you who are reading this, thank you for your continual love and support. I really appreciate that you are involved in our lives. We love you!
