Birthday Post!

Happy birthday to meeeee. Wheeeeee.

So I've been 25 years old for a week and one day now, and I don't feel any different really...25 seems so strange a concept to me: it's right in the middle of your 20s, the truest quarterlife-crisis number, the year when you can rent a car and have lower car insurance and stuff.

Hmph, I should rent a car.

This post should be about my birthday, the anniversary of my birth, the number of times I've revolved around the sun completely. 25. In three more 25-year segments I'll be 100. If I were a coin, I'd be 1/4 of a dollar. Why the comparisons? Why the fractions and mathematical breakdown of an age?

The squirrel makes sense. Just keep reading.

I dunno really. But it's really quite alright. And I don't think the actual celebration that took place on my birthday serves as a foreshadowing representation of my 25th year as a whole. [Does that sentence even make sense?] Anyway, in a nutshell:
  • I woke up to get ready for work (because my boss didn't approve my request for the day off.
  • My mother was sick, and my younger sister was dead asleep, so nobody sang happy birthday in the morning.
  • Nobody seemed to care that it was my birthday, I don't even think I cared about it.
  • It was pretty rainy on my way to work, and as I made my way down the usual route, a squirrel jumped in front of my car and I killed it.
    • The sudden death of the squirrel caused me to laugh and cry, simultaneously.
  • Work was lame and not busy at all, hahahaha. And for the birthday lunch we had pizza. I also received a few gifts and birthday cards.
  • I left work and went home. We "celebrated" my birthday by eating cake with some of my close family. Then everyone left because more storms were on their way.
  • My younger sister and I drove around for a bit, just before the storms hit...a small hurrah for being a year older.
And that was it. 25. I would like to say that my birthday was amazing and stuff like that, but it wasn't. But I was okay with it. Every day for the past month-and-a-half has been amazing enough, feeling love from all different places, that I can't keep myself from smiling!

Summer's gonna be awesome.

P.S. Out of all the presents I received for my birthday, I STILL DID NOT RECEIVE A BLACK LABRADOR PUPPY!!! I guess I'll have to get one of these days of these days.

This would be a picture of my black lab puppy...IF I HAD ONE!!!!!


  1. You need a black Labrador puppy really. You owe it to yourself to get one. I imagine pizza and cake is all I'll be getting on my birthday and I'll probably be paying for them both and eating them both alone in my room.

    1. Definitely, hopefully I'll get this puppy by the end of the year!!

      And you know, even if all you do for your birthday is eat pizza and cake alone, that's totally okay!! Another year older, another year awesomer, and pizza and cake are a perfect way to celebrate it!! :)

  2. Hello Euni~ Happy Birthday! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I remember when I turned 25. My twin sister and I had a big party, but for some reason I still felt restless. That restlessness lasted for a few more years, even after I got married and had my first baby. There was always some other thing or project or whatever that I thought I needed. Then one day, I realized I was created for God and when I started to seek Him, the restlessness was satisfied.

    I hope you do get your puppy soon. I hear they are a lot of work. I prefer birds ~ small birds that don't make a lot of noise, or mess. LOL. The children are anxious to buy a parakeet soon.

    God bless you Euni. I pray you have a wonderful year full of peace and growth. Seek God.
