“Blow your cake and make a wish!”
Oh how I wish things are just that easy. I mean, you can just blow a candle and poof! Your wish comes true the next day. But things don’t go that way. You can’t just wish your way out or into something every birthdays and I have struggled through a lot of ups and downs in my 24 years here in the world. Oh, wait, I’m not going all emotional and shit on this blog post. This is, after all, my birthday post and it’s something I should be thankful for.
My life as a 23 year old girl has been pretty exciting, I must say. I ended a 3-year relationship around November of last year and started going out on dates again when the New Year kicked in. It’s pretty fun, actually. I get to go out with guys who have different perspectives in love and other things. Some are really nice, some can be total jerks (yes, you can spot a jerk after a few dates) but the experience is still good.
I also worked with a party list this February. I did the script for their AVP and also campaigned for them. I remember attending their motorcade in Pampanga which was so much fun. I have learned about their advocacy, about the people they’d want to help and how clean their intentions are in the Congress. And yes, they won a seat! They deserve it.
Also this year, I haven’t been blogging everyday like how I used to. Some of you may ask... Why is that?
Quality over quantity.
I have noticed how some of my earlier blog posts aren’t very enjoyable to read and lack personal touch. What does a blogger really do? Well it’s all about sharing to our readers our own personal experiences on things whether it may be a review or an event we’ve attended. And if we fail to give that personal touch, it feels like we have eliminated the essence of really being a blogger, right? And as a 23 year old, I have seen that. So when I feel like I’m not inspired to share something sensible with you, I’d choose not to post anything at all. I’d like a personal touch even on my reviews and look posts. So, I’d prefer for the thought and emotions to sip in before I write.
So, I guess my life as a 23 year old had really been full of learning and excitement and I am thankful for every bit of challenge and gift God has given me.
I wonder what this next year in my life has got to offer.
Thank you to all the people who have been a part of the crazy and wonderful 24 years I’ve lived. I still have got a lot more to learn, to experience and to improve. Don’t give up on me, k?
How I Celebrated my Birthday:
It was a nice Sunday lunch out with my family at Max’s Restaurant, a known Filipino family restaurant and nothing really fancy. I believe I don’t need a really big celebration to say it was the best birthday ever. Every year is my best birthday because every year I grow, learn new things and become a better version of myself. I don’t have many gifts to brag but the genuine greetings my family and friends gave me. I appreciate each and every person who has made my birthday wonderful and a special thank you to a special friend who stayed up and waited the clock to strike 12mn (well it is like 6 hours earlier from where he is), dressed up on Skype, just to welcome the 8th of September with me. He is like one of the most intellectual and sensible person I have met. See you soon!
Well, I guess, that’s it. I’m 24. And I guess I have to get used to saying that.
