Someone's turning 24 (24!!) in a couple of days. We celebrated today because 24-year-olds are busy people.

Biryani, cake, and presents at home and then we headed to a showing of How to Blow up a Pipeline. Just saying the title out loud when asking for tickets made me feel a bit anxious, honestly.

My Spring term class starts tomorrow. Somehow in this nightmarish, tear-soaked week, I've managed to finish prepping and sharing course materials. Early.

Twenty-four, wow! Happy days ahead.

Happy b-day to At! I'm a little jealous you got to eat cake with him. Noah's turning 22 this week at school. We'll see him in a few weeks, though, at graduation.
