I swear, I should probably just move my birthday to January as well because it’s clearly birthday month here at YMR.

Anyhoo, today is Larissa’s EIGHTEENTH birthday and it’s totally a big deal. WHY? BECAUSE SUDDENLY YOU CAN DO ALL THE THINGS. No really, I’ve done my research and seriously girl, ENJOY THE AWESOMENESS OF THIS DAY AND EMBRACE ALL THE AMAZING THINGS YOU CAN NOW DO .

Top 3 Things a 18 Year Old Canadian Can Now Do

You can buy fireworks legally 

I don’t know about you but buying fireworks? YOU HAVE TO DO IT. *whispers* Help a friend out and smuggle some to Australia for me? *puppy dog eyes*

I JUST REALLY LOVE FIREWORKS OKAY

You can write a Will 

So…. *cough cough* CELINE AND I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE TO HELP YOU WRITE IT.

“I bequeath Celine and Melanie all my books and food and badassery”

Sounds good? I thought so.

You know what? Now Celine and I have a motive to assassinate you so we can obtain those beauteous books of yours.

NOT THAT WE WOULD EVER DO SUCH A THING…

You can now get into biiiig trouble if you commit a huge offence aka off to jail you go 

So yes, you’re no longer one of us puny teenagers. (Well you are still a teenager, but you know what I mean.) NO MORE ROBBING THE BOOKSTORE, OKAY? I know you love doing it and so do I but seriously, YOU COULD GET IN BIG TROUBLE NOW. Especially if they found out about the body…

Also it’d totally jeopardise your chance to become a kickass lawyer. AND I’M RELYING ON YOU TO BE MINE IN THE FUTURE, THE FATE OF MEL LIES IN YOUR HANDS.

Okay, now it’s time for some beautiful celebrity GIFs because why not 

I SWEAR CHRIS PINE HAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FACE

OUR FINNICK (aka Sam Claflin)

*flails*

MISHA COLLINS’ EYES OMG

When I watch the Hunger Games movies I kinda ship Gale with Katniss more because seriously, Liam Hemsworth is gorgeous <33

BUT ZAC EFRON THO

So Happy 18th Birthday, Larissa! 

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE QUEEN OF FEMINIST RANTS AND KILLER RED LIPSTICK! <333 I really hope your 18th year is the best one yet, and I cannot wait to share another blogging year with you!

Cheers, hun! (Let’s pretend I am allowed drink for a minute)

Celine: So yes I really don’t have anything to add but I second everything Mel said 😀 Also I just want to wish you the most amazing birthday ever, you kick-ass and super sweet legal adult, you <3333

    hApPy BiRthDaY! (it kind of hurts my head to write like that but birthdays are special occasions.) Did you know that January 24 also happens to be Dean’s birthday on Supernatural? BECAUSE I DID. Speaking of Supernatural, Misha’s face is sunshine and puppies.

    Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY and you must know I love your feminist rants.

  13. I DIDN’T KNOW IT WAS YOUR BIRTHDAY.

    I’M GOING TO SING A SONG FOR YOU in my prettiest voice:

    ‘Er is er één jarig HOERA, HOERA,
    dat kun je wel zien dat ben jij.
    Dat vinden wij alleen zo prettig ja, ja
    en daarom zingen wij blij, blij, blij, blij’

    Happy birthday girl 😀

    I’m not gonna lie, that is a BIG one!! You’ll remember it always, it’s just one of those (amazing) years! I’m excited for you, you are an adult now. (not that anything magic happens, unless you drink a little too much and get some of those fireworks Mel was talking about…then it will “feel” like magic is happening) hahah. 😀

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPPET! Wow, 18 already huh, no spring chicken any more 😀

    18 is an awesome age. You’re kind of an adult, but can still get away with a lot, still being a teen and all. Same with Diamond up there, I’m an Aquarius too. You know, we’re creative and all kind of awesome. Seeing Mel can’t drink, I’ll take my glass AND hers, you know, just to get in the party spirit and all.

    Happy birthday again Larissa, and I hope all your bookish dreams come true <3

      18 really is quite a milestone. I'm a teenager yes, but a legal one ;p Aquarius represent! LOL yes, I'm sure Mel won't mind.

      Thanks and they really did <33

    Really late to this, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY ONCE AGAIN, LARISSA!!! <3 <3 <3 I hope you know what an amazing bloggy friend you've been — you've really brightened up the blogosphere with your presence! And not to mention, YOUR LONG COMMENTS. Oh my gosh, they beat mine flat, I have no idea how you do it. You're a champion, girl, a champion. xD

    And ooh, being an eighteen-year-old Canadian sounds like all kinds of fun! I didn't know you had to be eighteen to be able to buy fireworks legally, though. Kind of like drinking or smoking, haha. Over here, fireworks are illegal no matter how old you are. Only the government can use them, ughhh.

    Heh, just as long as you don't get caught being up to no good, you should be fine. 😉 (Omg, don't listen to me, I'm a horrible influence.)

    THOSE BEAUTIFUL CELEBRITY GIFS. MEL, YOU HAVE OUTDONE YOURSELF. LARISSA, FEAST YOUR EYES WITH MEEEE. xD
