On Turning Eighteen

This post was supposed to go up on my actual birthday which was the 23rd but ah well, life happens. As you can tell from the post title, I turned 18 on Thursday. Some people were expecting me to feel different but I felt pretty much the same you know? 

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

  3. Happy belated birthday dear! So sorry to hear that your week didn't start out well, but it sounds like you had a lovely birthday so that's great :) I always feel like nothing has changed when it's my birthday, and even now I feel like I'm still in my early 20's. But when I do read back on my old entries from a few years ago, the changes (aka maturing) become more evident - one of the many benefits of keeping a blog!
