Go Girl It’s Your Birthday – Birthday Playlist

Hi! My name is Donni and I’ll be turning 26 tomorrow. Is 26 considered “late twenties” or can I still claim mid-twenties until next year? My golden birthday was super exciting. I was turning a quarter of a century (I actually hate when people say that), my insurance rate was going down, and I was still on a Beyoncé high from having been to the On the Run Tour. This year the most monumental thing I could look forward to is being kicked off my parent’s health insurance plan. Thankfully, I have my own. Even my Dad called me earlier this week to remind me of how old I’ll be. 26…Don… Geez… I remember when you were 6 and used to trick me to going to Toys R Us.  Here’s the thing, I LOVE birthdays – my own and other people’s – and I don’t mind getting older. I hope to be raging at my 50th. So all these comments about me getting older and the questions about me getting married are getting ignored.

It’s weird to think that a mere five years ago, I was celebrating 21 by having two parties, knocking back Coco Losos like water, dancing on bars in Five Points and throwing up in a booth at Qdoba. Sorry, Mom. Tomorrow, I’m just excited to hang out with my friends and go on an 1000 ft slip ‘n’ slide. I am embracing and celebrating how much I’ve grown.  So for all my 20-somethings, I say take each birthday to recommit to being young and enjoying life. So whether you’re a Leo like me or a Sagittarius or Capricorn waiting for the end of the year for your birthday, celebrate your unbirthday with me with this birthday playlist.

  1. It’s funny how when we’re in our 20’s every birthday closer to 30 feels like another nail in the coffin; now that I’m in my early 30’s, birthday’s aren’t so scary anymore. But oh, were those early 20 celebrations wild! 😉

    1. Yes, the celebrations of the early 20s were wild, but I’m definitely finding that birthday’s aren’t so scary. Thanks for reading!


  2. That is an excellent playlist! And yes, you are still mid-20s – LOL! Enjoy the day and celebrate your life.

  6. Happy (belated) birthday! I hope it was awesome 🙂 I was already a mom at 21 so I can’t say I have a lot of experience with ‘wild’ birthday parties, lol. I’m glad you had a great time though!
