Why? Because I’m 23, my favourite number in the whole world. I feel invincible.
My 23rd year already started off a bang. I have got to say I had such a grand time celebrating my birthday this year. Got to see all the important people that I wanted to see — family, friends, boyfriend — and left full on every occasion. I had noodles galore (I was always taught to eat long noodles on my birthday to ensure a long life), a good chunk of new baking and cooking equipment (hello pink KitchenAid Artisan 5-quart Stand Mixer!), and endless birthday greetings. For those of you who actually called me and left a voicemail, thank you. Getting phonecalls on your birthday is one of the most oldschool, down-to-earth, and intimate greetings I could ever receive on my special day. Thank you! Meant a lot to me. Even my whole work team singing happy birthday to me on Thursday was especially touching. I even got cake that I didn’t bake…amazing!
To the people whom I shared my extended 5-day birthday celebrations with, thank you, thank you, thank you! Couldn’t have asked for a better birthday.
Now the next countdown begins: 10 days til vacay!!!
Today is my birthday. I’m 22 now. I would just like to thank everybody who has made this day special for me. I have personally thanked everybody on my Facebook as well as in Twitter, text messages, emails, and phone calls. I am now up $70 in additional charges for texting. Thanks! But no, seriously. One of the warmest birthdays I’ve felt in a very long time. Thank you!
