Yesterday, November 27th, I celebrated my 22nd birthday. I had the most amazing weekend EVER. I really wasn't excited about turning 22 because it's not a mile stone birthday and I honestly looked at it as being just another day, but the love and fun that I had this weekend made this birthday the best one I've had so far.
On Friday, I went to see Trey Songz in concert. If you know me, then you should know that I LOVE TREY SONGZ! No, I'm not attracted to the man, but the artist! Oh man! I know just about all his songs. My friend got me tickets to go to the concert and we had such a good time. We definitely need to go to another one of those. After we went to club Amnesia and had fun there too.
On Saturday, I invited a couple of my close friends to do karaoke with me. I couldn't have asked for a better turn out. It was absolutely perfect and I can't imagine bringing my birthday in with any other people. Karaoke was so much fun and I was a bit nervous because I don't have a group of friends and I was basically just mashing all of the people that I'm individually close with together and it came out wonderful. No complaints. Everyone there wanted to be there and celebrated me and my life and that felt so good. I can't express how touched I was to see people care so much about me. I got to the karaoke bar and screamed out "It's my birthday!" and the whole bar started singing happy birthday to me and strangers bought me drinks. We ended up getting a private room so that me and my friends can do our own thing and it was jokes from there. I performed Beyonce and Michael Jackson. We all had drinks even though I didn't need the liquid courage to make me perform. I had to step out and talk to someone so I missed the bulk of the karaoke but from what I was told, everyone had a good time. :) I even got ride of my nose ring! -22! I'm growing up! lol
Yesterday morning when I woke up to the tons of texts, facebook comments and tweets, there was knock on the door AND I WAS SENT EDIBLE ARRANGEMENTS!!! All day people kept telling me how special I was to them and how much I deserved a good day and to feel loved and it felt amazing. I deal with a lot of things that I don't deserve and to just feel so much love was crazy! People contacted me and did things for me that I would never imagine. I went to dinner with my parents -yep MOM && DAD, my sisters, my nephew and my best friends. After that I spent time with someone who has surprisingly been requesting a lot of my time lately. It was just amazing. I had an amazing time. I wasn't disappointed or let down. Everyone that I wanted to see and be around, I was and how I spent last night, was the icing on the cake. <3 ;)
All in all, as I sit back and mature lol I realize that I do deserve it and there are people out there that really care about me and took the time out to not only let me know verbally, but actually took the time out and made the effort for me. Who called me and took interest in my day, that wanted to spend time with me and make me smile. I know I'm a bit dramatic but it's just a nice feeling and I wasn't expecting it at all. It was a perfect birthday and I wouldn't have changed a thing.
Thanks to all those involved. :)
*OH! I got a Brazilian. NEVER AGAIN! LOL
