today is my 23rd birthday and i am going to spend it the best way ever: booked myself a single room in a spa resort in the alps. three days no phone, no laptop, no people. only reading, hiking, sleep and food. to some people it might seem sad to be spending your birthday alone but my life since january has been so incredibly crazy and this is really all i need for my birthday.. from the bottom of my heart. recharging will feel so good, i can not wait. now i will go buy some new books, have breakfast at a french café where i am going to dip my croissant into my bowl of coffee, read the newspaper and simply relax. life is good.
