Post-birthday thoughts

 I just wanted to write a short entry.

Yesterday was my birthday and I spent it in the good company of my family. There's a seafood buffet in the next town over that has a sweet birthday deal, but I didn't want to trouble my parents into going with me. Despite offering to celebrate locally, they decided to go have that buffet with me for lunch. 

And, well, it was just nice! It was nice to be with my mom and dad and have everyone in good spirits.. I feel good times like those are uncommon, so I'm definitely grateful that we were all in a good mood. My mom doesn't usually like to eat, but she was pretty excited about eating bowls after bowls of green tea ice cream with me! I just felt overall emotional, overcome with love for my family. My sister left me a nice message, since she's away for school and couldn't join us.

I'm grateful for all the birthday messages I received, too! Really, I always believe that simple "Happy birthday!" messages can really make someone's day, since you never know who it can come from! I have to admit I was surprised to received them from quite a few people! I'm so appreciative of everyone who's kept me in their thoughts! 

I think every year we learn to let our heart grow a little bigger as we meet new people, revisit old friends, and learn to let go of things that might have hurt us. I remember reading a quote that time heals everything - you just have to let it. I also like the one that read if everyone's happy with you, you've made many compromises; if you're happy with everyone, you've had to oversee many faults. I think that's what it means to grow as wiser as an adult - to be an understanding and caring person (... along with lame responsibilities like having to go to the bank and getting groceries).

Am I a depressing kid? -laugh- I don't think any of that had to do with me, but they're interesting reminders. What I really wanted to say is that I'm surrounded by wonderful family and friends, and I really appreciate the time everyone took to keep me in their thoughts by wishing me happy birthday. You all helped make it wonderful. ^^

Happy Birthday to me~

Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve to post another entry to show activity because I haven't answered all the comments and friend's journals waiting in line. ^^a Please forgive me for today. It's my birthday and I just wanted to document it! I'm going around on every journal I have to spread the news! I don't mean to be obnoxious-- I'm just happy and I want to share my glee. n_n

I turned 20 today, and because of the school I go to, I get comments like "Oh, you're just a baaaby!" because the age difference among students is vast. But online on sites like Neopets, I'm an oldie compared to 13 year olds. XD! No matter, the other older Neopet players experience the same! For me, it's another year of growth. I don't really feel old or young. ^^ Here goes to another!

Have I any plans? )
