I don’t really make a big deal out of my birthday. After all, it’s just another day in one’s life. But this year, I feel like I should pay attention because, well, I’m turning twenty. I won’t be a ‘teen’ anymore. But what I don’t know is that other people paid extra attention too and I love every second of ‘my day’! So here’s how one of the best birthdays of my life went..
I woke up to a couple of texts, including that of my mother’s. She’s not home, she’s out of the country at this moment so her greeting was through a text message. :) Rhie greeted me first which is definitely not a first. Although the cutest birthday goes to my college cutie Chinese classmate, Cait! <3
Anyway, I went to my first class in AIT and then we get on with our 10-11:30am class. But at 11am, my Professor stopped teaching then my friend Tanya, took over telling the class she’s gonna show a video abt her org’s event but what was projected wasn’t a teaser, it was a birthday video for Raz, my thesis partner who celebrated her 23rd birthday last Feb. 4, and me. It was touching! Friends and Professors were at the video giving birthday wishes. /cue the tears Although it’s a tad bit embarrassing that there were close-up pictures of me being projected. -_- Lol
After the video, my friends were carrying 2 cakes for me and Raz. My friends went to our class even if they have classes or went early for the surprise! They’re really the best!
I hurried to my Math class after and that was prolly the bad part about the day because I had a fcking hard exam! I was late, I was panting and took the exam and can’t seem to concentrate. I was even the last person to finish the exam and for 10 minutes, I was the only person in the classroom, well except for the Professor. :)) I’m pretty sure I’m gonna flunk the exam. -_-
My best Baguio pal, Jenaz waited for me at halls of Math building to personally greet, hug and give me her super awesome gift - an Ateneo shirt! <3 I don’t even have a UP shirt and now I have an Ateneo shirt! Yay~ HAHAHA.
My last class for the day was STS. My crush was wearing a blue shirt, which matches my skirt. LOL. Although I don’t like him now because when my friends approached him to ask for a video saying “happy birthday”, he refused, “no. i’m sorry” then went along. Jerk! It made me sad when my friends told me abt it.
My friends and I went to Tomato Kick Maginhawa to celebrate after my class.
We finished the two cakes in 2 minutes! LOL
We went to Mang Larry’s Isaw after then went home because my sister kept on texting me to go home so we can eat out, little did I know she’s planning something!
When I got home, all the lights at home were out. When I opened our door, I blindly saw balloons and camera then I whisphered to myself, “ay tae” then the lights were on and everyone shouted.. “Happy Birthdaaaay!” complete with blowing horns and part poppers!! I was surprised!! I really thought the celebration will be the next day, Saturday. My Ate told me she’s going to Manila and Angel told me she has practice, I didn’t even doubt. Well I guess I was fooled by my two lovely sisters! :))
My aunts were also good! They texted me earlier in the day to greet and ask me when will be the get-together. They were all good! :))
Bonding with cousins! :) Eating Korean beef! :)
With the rangers!! <3
The best cake I ever had!!
My day was a blast! Thank you again, ATE for orchestrating everything and ANGEL for helping!! :-*
