15

A list* of what happened when I was** fifteen:
  1. I penned a 52,000 word novel***. Holy crap.
  2. I saw the sixth Harry Potter movie in theaters. Five times.
  3. I stalked Jensen Ackles on Granville Island.
  4. I stayed up all night in a hotel in Toronto writing a Girl Guide report and then went to the gym and ran on a treadmill at 6am.
  5. I wrote a feature length screenplay.
  6. I met Hank Green, irl.
  7. I learned to make bagels.
  8. I read a lot of books.
  9. I ate a lot of amazing food.
  10. I tried to imagine people complexly.
  11. I celebrated the one year anniversary of our collab blog, Raving Perusasions. That was on Wednesday, the 5th, fyi. I forgot to mention it on Thursday. Happy First Birthday, blog.
  12. Last book read while being 15: The Reckoning, by Kelly Armstrong
  13. Last movie watched while being 15: The Proposal
  14. Last meal eaten while being 15: pizza (vegetarian, no olives)
  15. Last music listened to while being 15: Hairspray soundtrack.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you will have a stupendous my birthday. I will write to you again on Thursday, after which time I will hopefully have passed my drivers knowledge test. And now this soon-to-be-sixteen-year-old is out.

*I figured I wrote a pretty expansive blog on Thursday so I can cop out with a short list today.
**I'm already speaking in past tense even though I'm technically still this age for the next hour and five minutes.
***Vita: Sorry for my pretentious use of this word. I'm working on the transition but 'book' seems really vague.

1) It's okay, my issue with the word "novel" is my fault, not yours, and
2) Even if it was your fault, I'd let it slide because today is your birthday ;)

Happy birthday! I don't know how you can top the things you did when you were 15 (I'M SO JEALOUS THAT YOU MET HANK GREEN), but it should be fun trying :)

Happy Birthday! (Now I'm going to have to make the last two weeks of my *14-yr-old, yay for proofreading* life AWESOME so as to MATCH YOU.) Happy bloggiversary, too.

Still horribly jealous of your Hank meeting-experiences,
Best Wishes,
Rena. :)
