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!
