A crash course in changing the world.
As our car parks on the side of the road, one of my friends lets out a squeal. It's my 20th birthday, and tonight we are celebrating. My parents rented a hall for the night and invited all my friends and all the family. Mum bought the food, drinks, decorations, and glow sticks - yes, tonight the only power that we will be using is the stereo for music. No lights. The glow sticks will help us see in the dark. My friends and i step out of the car and walk towards the large hall that's covered in 'Happy Birthday!" banners, my short blue dress swishes with every step i take. Tonight is going to be great.
