On August 27, this Wednesday, I u turned 22. The 5 days I decided to celebrate for, so far, has been nothing but amazing.
I actually had to go to work on the day. But I resigned myself from last month that no matter what I would be positive and where possible, happy. Naturally there was some hiccups like my dress being messed up with make up (womp). But when I got to work, I got the stains out and to my surprise got a present from one of my bosses. They also bought me lunch and balloons!
This was the most unexpected thing ever. I mean I’m their favourite but this was a lot, to me. Lol.
My day turned out to me better than I anticipated!
In the evening I went out with 2 of my closest and dearest friends, Jen and Vlad - Their treat ;) lol. It was perfect. I thought it would have been a bit awkward but it was amazing making matters even better. I can’t describe my dinner for you but it was so wonderful I forgot about my phone, and only used it to take pictures lol.
I’m so happy I don’t even know how to put it into words. Lol this feeling is so strange.
So I asked my parents for a cake for my birthday and if you know me I don’t like cake, unless it’s of the cheesecake variety lol. My mother actually looked me in my face and said I was too old for cake. :( I was very much bummed out about that. And it had been on my mind since before my birthday. It was one of those “I will be happy on my birthday in spite of…” things. But apparently my cousin had a cake delivered to my house.
AND I WENT HOME YESTERDAY AND DIDN’T EVEN THINK TO LOOK IN MY FRIDGE!! lol When my father came home and I told him I hadn’t eaten, he said “Oh you’re having cake for dinner!” I flew to the kitchen on a cloud of bewilderment and excitement. I cried when I saw that cheesecake in the fridge. I had to call and ask if it is mine. My cousin laughed me to scorn. Lol.
I don’t know what today, tomorrow and Sunday has in store for me but my birthday celebration is turning out to be the best birthday ever.
It’s been 4 years since I last enjoyed my birthday like this. I worked so hard to get to this point, where I will myself to be nothing but positive through an entire two days! Let’s see if I can’t push myself through the next 3 days.
