Good times

“Good times for a change.
See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please, please, please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time.
See, the life I've had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time”

This is a song by The Smiths and I cannot get enough of it. It makes me sad and happy at the same time. It’s beautiful. I want to check out all their songs now.

Well, I’m 21! Yup, yup I said it. Myself. Man, I can’t believe I’m at such a good stage in my life and I’m stuck in this place. I need to get out there! I will! Fingers crossed.

I received lots of phone calls as soon as it was 12 on November 9. One of them involved two silly girls singing a silly made-up birthday song (I love you guys!) and one included a friend singing ‘Happy Birthday’ on his guitar. Out of the world. Then it got better. I got a chocolate cake and multi-coloured roses at 12 AM in the night. Yep, it was Chee. It had to be Chee. Of course, I shrieked till my already sore throat became almost fully clogged up. I cut the cake and mom dad hugged me and became all teary eyed for no reason. (So that’s where I get my weepiness from!!)

The first part of the next day was a disaster. My friend and I had an Industrial Law presentation and we had to go through 16 pages of excruciatingly painful information about the changes that took place in the workplace. I don’t understand why these books have to use such a convoluted language. You cannot understand the meaning at one go. I would read each mammoth paragraph-long sentence aloud and then both of us would at each other with an expression of horror and utter bewilderment trying to make sense of what we’d just read. It took forever to make the slides and we had to bunk the first two classes. Although we kicked ass during the presentation. We share a good presentation chemistry. (Hypo hi5 girl!)

Well, when I finally got free I realized everyone had gone home. Meansies!! I went out with girl to CCD and well we talked about the philosophy of life, standing up for our rights, and why parents never understand their kids and how we will always understand ours. We seemed to have gone high on caffeine. It was good. We were like two chirpy teenagers. But after that, NOTHING happened :(

A lot of my friends forgot to wish me and I was just sitting in my room; grumpy and alone. And then I changed from “I hate my friends” to “I love my friends” in a matter of seconds :P

Three of my friends, Chuski, Godfather and Fairguy (Yes, they’re not real names :P ) appeared on my doorstep, with huge, WIDE grins intact, holding a chocolate cake! And it was unbelievable. It was a chocolate vanilla cake with walnuts, cashewnuts, chocolate chunks with chocolate icing and gems on it! It was amazing! The rest is easy to guess. I don’t even have to write it down. I hopped, I hugged, I cried out “I have friends who do stuff for me! Lalalala!” and we sat around and talked. It was so nice!

The next morning I received the most amazing and the most endearing mail I’ve ever received. Sigh :) 

And so, another year has whizzed by. And it seemed like yesterday when I was cribbing about turning twenty! 

In the end it just comes down to this: it’s only about the people who matter. And the people who matter, will always be there for you to cheer you up.

Happy birthday to me! :D

P.S. Today’s date: 11.11.11. :)
