It has been a month since I celebrated my 23rd birthday, and I feel like I also took a step onto the ladder of “maturity.” I used to think birthdays are just for having fun, and just basically turning a year older, but by turning 23 I’ve come to realize that birthdays aren’t only celebrated just to get cakes and open presents. Although, I am all up for parties, cakes, and gifts! hihi Now I see birthdays as opened windows of opportunities and unlocked doors of enlightenment, so cheesy, but so true.
Work has been so overwhelming that week that I did not even think of doing something special for my birthday. All I had planned was to cook spaghetti for dinner, but my friends had another plan in mind. I am a big fan of surprises so I was kind of expecting the surprise from them HAHA! But it exceeded my expectations. I was one happy kid turning 23 that night. It was then followed by a spontaneous night out filled with a lot of firsts with my closest friends at work. Turning a year older isn’t really bad after all.
