WOOHOOO!! I'M COMPLETELY LEGAL NOW!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. Today I turned 21!! *Throws confetti*

Yes, I know you all want to know if I did anything special for my big day, and I know that you will all be disappointed when you hear "No I didn't". I know it might sound crazy, but I don't like birthdays, never have. I don't want to celebrate the fact that now I'm an old fart (well, not THAT old, but still, getting there). I still remember when I was 18, 21 seemed so far away, and *blink*, I'm here. I don't like parties, I don't like drinking, I don't like having too many people around me, so, as you guessed it, my 21st birthday is just another ordinary day in my life.

Yes, I got presents, many presents. I got tons of GC from my BF's family, got lot of $$ from my mom, and my BF bought everything from my wishlist on Beautycrunch (we are still poor, LOL. It might take us a few year to get through my WL on Sephora). I got loads of birthday wishes from my wonderful friends, both in real life and online. I want to say a big THANK YOU to those that wished me a happy birthday. My BF and I went to Outback to have dinner and joked around around. My mom stayed up til 12:01am in order to called me and wish me a happy birthday. I'm fortunate enough to have a mother who loves me more than her own life; I'm fortunated enought to have a boyfriend who is my lover, my best friend, and my soulmate; and I'm fortunated enought to have amazing friends who will always be there for me. I'm one LUCKY girl (woman)!

I didn't celebrate my Bdays any big way, since I'm going back to Miami next wedsday for Thanksgiving (the same day as my mom's Bday), so I'd rather spend it quietly with someone I love instead of having this huge party and invite random people. I will have a dinner get together with a few of my closest friends when I get back. Yes, I'm very elitist when it comes to my friends. I am a perfectionist when it comes to emotion. I CANNOT stand any flaws in relationships, which is why I still refuse to watch Angelina Jolie (ahem*husband stealer*ahen) movies. It's pretty tough to make it to my close friends list. I have a lot of friends to joke around with, have fun with, but the selected few whom I share my deepest secrets are the ones I will never let go.

I don't think I will be haulin' like mad like my previous birthdays because money is becoming hard to get now. I'm not working, so I have to think of how my mom would feel if I blow $500 on unnecessary makeup. I need to budget budget budget. I will be more mature and more understanding. This is my wish for my 21st birthday.

Again, thank you everyone for wishing me a happy birthday! I love you all!

CONGRATS & HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
our legal age in Australia is 18. i don't think i could wait till i was 21 to be legal. i don't drink and gamble much but its fun to go out with your friends when they do.

Gee said...

I'm sorry it's late, but happy birthday!! Hope you had a great one :)

angie519 said...

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

I am the same way! I'm picky when it comes to my friends, and who I choose to spend my time with. And I haven't drank much since turning 21 =P.

As Indonesian said, Selamat Ulang Tahun : )

Happy Birthday, grown up pretty woman! Glad to hear you had awesome time....wish you all the best *hugs*

vw0ng said...

happy bday tao! heh, i'm just like you when it comes to socializing. i don't like big crowds and calling ppl friends when they're really not. Your bday sounded a lot like my 21st bday... except my mom didn't wait until 12:01 to call me lol, which btw, i have to agree with others who say it's cute =)

cheryl said...

lol "woman" indeed.. HAPPY BELATED! your mom is so sweet! i remember on my 21st birthday my mom gave me one of her rings in her collection so that was quite special. other than that, just a big family lunch and all, but i dun like drinking either.

spider87 said...

I'm not exactly sure what "Completely legal" is but just try to rent a car. In most states you have to be 25. Or try to run for president.... 35+ :-( lol Congrats though :-)

ilovewendy said...

Tao!
Happy,Belated,Birthday!:)
I hope it was a good one too<3

Oh yeah, I saw your video on YT about your Harry.
I'm sorry to hear about that. I can't believe that woman! She seriously needs to keep herself in check.
I can't stand that the U.S. JS does not give animals right to be considered a "living thing".

My cousins Yorkie was mutilated by a large dog too. My aunt and uncle took the owner's of the dog liable and faced them in court. They actually got a settlement for the case in the end.

Tell your mother to call the lawyer and say that she has suffered and fallen in grief/depression due to the trauma that dog and the owner has caused her (pain and suffering).
I don't see why the lawyer would be hesitant to take the case because that dog has been a problem before. Then again, some lawyers have a base on what they want out of a case so, that's probably why; sadly to say.
It just depends on the lawyer that wants the case and the judge that will look over it.
If the lawyer is able to convince the judge they will rule in favor of your mother and Harry.

I really hope all goes well and that Harry gets his justice.
Even though animals are not able to speak audibly doesn't mean they should be treated as crap!:(

Hey Girl. Sorry to have missed your bday. HAPPY BELATED!! You're still a baby! 21 psssh I'm 24! I'm a year away from being in my MID 20s :( So enjoy these early years of your 20s.

Btw, regarding your camera quest. Canon is a great brand and some models are definitely affordable. I use a Fiji and I like it too. Good luck!
