Thursday was My Birthday!! 22 years old, baby! And unlike many young 20-something’s I didn’t want to have a party at a club or bar, or go out and do shots or drink. What I wanted for my birthday was to go to Connecticut’s Mystic Aquarium.
Since it was my birthday I received free admission, and I had been looking forward to feeding the sting rays and doing a one on one encounter with the penguins. Like, I was telling everyone at work about how ecstatic I was.
Sadly, the aquarium only does those things in the summer months. While I did get to pet the sting rays and smaller sharks, everything else was a no go.
Still, I had an amazing time!
Can you tell I love jellyfish!? Also, look at these eels! They look straight out of the little mermaid!!
I had some fun in the gift shop as well, they had some “kanye shades”. I ended up getting this amazing jellyfish tee shirt as well!
After that fun afternoon of sea creatures, I surprised my parents back home! They took me out to dinner at a shockingly fancy, delicious, and well priced Italian restaurant in their town of Seekonk, MA called ‘Chardonnay’. The ambiance was great, with faux candles to set a calm mood.
With a bottle of wine and birthday cards we feasted on a Mediterranean pizza piled with spinach, olives, feta and onions; all my favorites!
I then finished off my birthday night with dessert and drinks with some local friends at UNOs.
Oh sweet, delicious success of becoming 22!
