That's right, folks. I'm finally 18 freakin years old!! Can you believe it??
celebrate my birthday for the first time in my life this year because I really don't feel like it. Not even a birthday cake.
I know, weird right?
Most people would've thrown a HUGE party on their 18th birthday, but after last year's party, I guess I didn't want to go through the hassle of inviting people, planning out the party, splurge on catering and then go cleaning up the place later on. Its simply too much work! I don't want to go through that again unless somebody else wants to throw a birthday party for me and do all the work.
In fact, we recently had a huge family gathering 2 weeks ago. Plus, I just came back from Italy and I'm still sorting out my life at the moment. I guess I'm simply tired and I have no mood for any celebrations. Not even for my 18th birthday. THAT's how tired I am.
Instead, I've had quite a pleasant and relaxing birthday last Monday. On my birthday, my mom took me out for my first facial spa! Woohoo!!
I felt AMAZING after that facial spa. It was definitely a great experience and frankly that was exactly what I wanted for my birthday. A relaxing day at the spa. How did my mom know, I have no idea. But I've been thinking about that since last year.
Aside from the spa, I've finally received the latest novel by Sophie Kinsella (she's my ALL TIME favorite author) I ordered from MPH. Spent the day reading it until I got a text from Melissa to go out the gates where I found a basket of handmade roses and a birthday card!
I LOVE you Melissa!!
Along with the book, I also found another mail for me; a birthday card from Godma and Godpa! How awesome is that?
Later in the day, even Roann, her aunt and brother, Ronald came over to visit me and wish me a happy birthday. I was really surprised when I first heard a group of people singing 'Happy Birthday' outside my room until they opened the door to my room! Thanks for coming over you guys, and I love the nail polishes you got me. I'll be sure to make use of them :D
So to end my wonderful 18th birthday, my family and I had a fancy dinner at a Japanese buffet restaurant (I got to eat for free). ITS CHOW TIME!!!
Of course, I can't forget the people who wished me a happy birthday on Facebook and through SMS. Thank you so much, you guys! I love you all!!
I guess it comes to show that you don't really need a big party, or, presents, or even a cake to feel special on your birthday. I feel so loved knowing that there are people who actually thought of me on my special day.
My 18th birthday may not be the most extravagant birthday of all, but on my 21st birthday, I ain't gonna throw a big party either. Nope, I'm gonna take a tour round Europe on my 21st birthday. Now THAT's how you celebrate your day of freedom. Bon Voyage!
