Last November marked my 30th birthday. Honestly, nothing really feels different but I suppose I should feel and act like an adult at this point (we’ll see how that goes). In terms of celebrating it, I got a lot of love from everyone.
My birthday landed on Thursday, which is the day I go to my junior high school. When my 3rd years caught wind that my birthday would be landing the day I would be going there, they got super excited. When I came to school, everyone was wishing me happy birthday. Ami and Aya gave me some handmade birthday cards which were cute. Jun and Shin wrote a huge message for me on the chalkboard and it stayed there for the entire class. Class itself was hilarious; students were being more funny than usual when we were presenting stuff. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday at work:
The next day I went to Nagoya as a mini-trip and the weather was excellent. Usually the weather always gets crappy whenever I travel so it was a great change. I’d like to think that was a present from nature. I’ll go over that in a later blog post. When I came back from Nagoya, I had a nice birthday party with my friends. The venue was great and I got a surprise min-cake dessert at the end!
My last stop was at a bar where one of my friends secretly got someone to draw my caricature. It was hilariously random.
All in all, this was a great way to start my 30s. I’m not too worried about the decade change because honestly, I feel like I have been acting way older than I actually am…maybe my age number will finally get to match my personality. Here’s looking to another great year!
