Actually, last week wasn't very great for me. It was just one of those weeks when everything was going wrong. Not the best start to my birthday ya know?
While I feel exactly the same, I can't believe I'm an adult. I remember when I was in grade 3/4 talking with my friend Tara (who's still my friend by the way 😊) about how cool we're going to be when we're 'adults.'
Now that day has finally come. I just can't connect that 8-year-old girl to myself right now. I suppose that's how everyone feels as they grow old. We're all evolving.Our ideas and beliefs change and I think it's so cool. That's why I'll always be happy that I started this blog when I was 12 (if you didn't know this, all my posts from 2011-2015 are only accessible to me haha) as I can see how I've grown over the years.
Well, I'm just glad to be alive and happy.
I didn't do anything crazy for my birthday haha. It was a Thursday so I went to school as usual. It was so wonderful and touching to read all the messages I got. I was so moved by it all. And also by the thoughtful presents I got, when it comes to giving presents the thought matters a lot and my friends did not disappoint. I got everything from a personalised card with the cutest message to a hand-knitted bag and cardigan.
The day after my birthday, my entire Chemistry class went out for dinner at a nice restaurant with our teachers. The class decided that the dinner would count as my 'party' and so it was. Well, sort of.
All in all, it was a great night and a great birthday.
This post is super short but I just wanted to give you guys a quick update. See you in my next one! xx
