I am now officially legal! And that's the most excitement I have about turning 21. I'm honestly more excited about being able to purchase alcohol to bake with than I am to drink. I know, that sounds so lame, but I've been to countries where I am legal and it's just not that exciting to me.

Anyway, now that I am 21, it is finally time for me to take on the trials and tribulations of dating. I've gone out a few times, but never been in any relationships were things really clicked. Honestly, I'm more interested in courtship than dating. This is what Urban Dictionary says about dating, " The modern day battlefield of romance where hearts are won and broken, the not-quite so version of chivalry and wooing, an interview for a lover; the lay down some time-and money and see if you get some candy routine; the progressed game of cat-and-mouse; the human courtship ritual; playing baseball for the home run." I find this a bit entertaining, especially since Webster's Dictionary only recognized date as a fruit and a time of an event. The definitions are similar for courtship though, they both basically state that it is seeking the affections of someone without any sexual interaction.

So yes, it's time to really enter the trials. First step is cleaning out the closet. I have gone through most of my stuff and started throwing out things and shelving other things that simply shouldn't be worn anymore. Next up, will be going through what's left with my fashionista friend who we will call Fantasia. Fantasia will help me sort through the rest of my stuff to get the final sort done before the shopping begins. We've already made a couple of purchases, need to look for some more stuff though. My closet looks a bit empty. Once the wardrobe is done, it's onto the hair and finally the make-up. Think of this as the at-home version of "What Not to Wear". I could get on that show simply by my mass stash of T-shirts and jeans with holes from use.

Thus far, I've been asked out once. I turned it down as it simply wouldn't work. I apparently need to have an convo with an ex too as I'm pretty certain he's wanting to re-start a relationship, that I don't want to re-start, so yeah. I have a pretty bleak start, hopefully the stats will rise from here.

That's all I've got for now! haha! Just kidding. I went to Myrtle Beach this past weekend! It was awesome! Myself, parents, and a few good friend stayed at a resort and it was amazing! We got to hang out at the beach, spend time at the resort's two lazy rivers, 5 swimming pools, 12 hot tubs, etc. Then, we went to Broadway at the Beach where The two nerds of the group spent the day at MagiQuest and the other two went to the water park. Again, it was a great weekend! Can't wait to go back again with everyone!
