The day before yesterday was my 20th birthday (Yeah, I’m not a teen anymore. LOL) and this column is just an appreciation-slash- how-my-day-went type of post.
The night before my birthday, I was with my brods and sisses, having some drinking spree in our apartment because, well, the next day is a holiday (Thanks to Ninoy Aquino for that!) and we wanted to make use of that night very well since it’s just one of those nights where you can try to have fun till dawn without having to think of how not to go to classes late and hungoverthe next day.
We were just having fun when one of my mate’s clock alarmed, signaling 12 AM. What do you do when someone tells you it’s your birthday already? You tell them that their clock is two minutes advanced. Hahaha! My watch is in-sync with the university clock so we all waited until mine said 12 AM. I screen-captured it just to add some drama.LOL. *cue Happy birthday song*
Of course, when it’s your birthday, it’s the most perfect time for your friends to publicize some of the most horrible photos that you have, without getting you offended by adding some makabagbag-damdamin caption under it. And for the sake of this post, here’s one (Please try not to laugh.):
On the very morning of my birthday, I was hungover.(I’m 20. It’s legal!) I wasn’t able to come home because I have classes the next day so we decided to go to SM Calamba to celebrate my birthday, instead. (That’s how college students celebrate their birthdays: corny and cheap. LOL).My inaanak wanted us to fetch them from their apartment so we went there and to my surprise…
I must tell you the candles are the so-called “prank candles”—the ones often used in pranks because its flames don’t die unless you pour water or step on it. The funny thing is, we struggled to blow the flames out and their house got so smoky, it became almost suffocating. Hahaha!
As for what happened in the mall, it’s very ordinary. Haha. As I said, when you’re a college student, you become very practical. Things don’t have to be extravagant to be appreciated. (That sounded very adult. Now, I feel old. LOL).
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that."
