19

I’m 19 years old. Time really does fly and it seems like yesterday I was just 17!

It’s not my first time celebrating my birthday during exams period. 1st time was when I was 12. I was sitting for UPSR at that time and my birthday happened to be on the 2nd day of the exam. Being so stubborn and lazy, I refused to study Science. So, I ended up getting a B for it. I’m the only one in my family that didn’t score straight As for UPSR and I was really disappointed at myself. I really felt stupid at that time. But, things changed better when I got to secondary school.

2nd time was when I was 15. I could still remember I was sitting for my PMR trials exams. Determined not to repeat the history again, I promised to study hard and not take my birthday as an excuse to be lazy. My 15th Birthday was really one of my most favourite. I didn’t do much on that very day. I didn’t receive a lot of presents or any surprises from friends either. But, I really felt that it was a very personal birthday celebration between God and me. It’s so difficult to explain the feelings here but, trust me, I really felt so good. Not to forget to mention, I had a great birthday breakfast with my parents on that day!

And now, on my very 19th Birthday, I had to celebrate it with Physics and Chemistry. Sad but, I did enjoy it. Although I had tough times trying to focus studies on that day, God managed to calm me down and guide me to finish the chapters. And… I got a very cute surprise from my college mates! My housemates were really sweet that they planned to surprise me at 12 midnight of September 3. I know they had a hard time planning because I kept reminding them about my birthday and telling them my birthday wishes! And I could easily see through their actions too! But, I was really touched. They gave me a black dress, a pair of earrings and a butterfly hairclip! So cute… Also, Mandy posted a parcel to me and it was a photo album containing all the secondary school pictures including my ugliest picture!

A BIG THANK YOU to all of you! THANK YOU so much for all of these. And also THANK YOU to all who text messaged and facebook-messaged me all the birthday wishes. Thank you so much and May God bless you all! Muaks!

 

P/s: I have yet to upload the pictures onto my laptop. Gotta grab them from my friends first. So, stay tune for pictures!
