Two days ago, 26 July 2012, I celebrated 2 decades of life! I’m officially no longer a teenager! Whoop whoop! 🙂
My special day started off pretty early at approximately 06:30am. My dad barged into my room, woke me up and started singing “Happy Birthday”. After the the 1st verse, people usually sing “How old are you now?” to the “Happy Birthday” tune but instead my dad started singing “You’re not a teen anymore”, LOL! I found that absolutely hilarious and I was touched by his creativity. I gave him a really big hug and then he gave me an envelope. Inside the envelope was a card (how sweet!), a slab of Cadbury Top Deck chocolate (yum!) and cash (ka-ching!). A few minutes later, my brother came in to wish me a happy birthday and gave me a hug before rushing off to school. After lying in bed chatting away on the phone with good friends, I got ready for the day.
I went to Wimpy in Hatfield and met up with one of my best friends, Babz, for breakfast. She gave me Ferrero Rocher chocolate and a jewelry “tower” decorated with ribbons, which is great because now I can sort my jewelry into different compartments instead of having to untangle them constantly! She also gave me a gift from her twin sister, Nakato, which was the sweater I am wearing in the picture above! Love it!
After breakfast, we headed to Brooklyn Mall so that Babz could look for a new duvet and more importantly, so that I could see my friend, Mel. It was really great seeing Mel considering the fact that I had not seen her in months yet we talk every single day. She bought me a Berry Crush smoothie from Boost Juice Bar and it is honestly thee most divine smoothie I have ever had in my entire life!
I went to campus in the afternoon and actually attended my classes (bleh, but I figured 2 hours would not kill me). They were extremely boring as usual but at least I was present, lol. I visited some friends and we hung out and played Xbox. After that, I spoke to my boyfriend on the phone while fetching my brother from school and then I went home.
When I got home, I received phone calls from 2 of my cousins in England and Malaysia, which I appreciated a great deal! I was totally and utterly drained, but I had this weird urge to be around people and my brother and my dad had gone straight to bed. I left the house and went to see some friends, but they were busy and I got bored really quickly so I just went back home and watched Harry Potter movies till I fell asleep (which was interrupted by a phone call from my boyfriend at some stage, not that I minded :))
I had a great birthday! I was looking to have a chilled day and I was not keen on doing anything crazy. I saw and/or spoke to all the people closest to my heart which was all that really mattered to me.
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! You all made my day extra special! 🙂
