This is my first (?) or second (?) birthday that I had outside the Philippines. I think my mom and I were in Singapore for my birthday last 2011. This time around, I am with my new friends and extended family via Rom.
We had a simple backyard dinner with awesome grilling and cocktail mixing going on. Rom prepared everything.
He know I love stars so… Yay, I went nuts with the photos!
His brother Ren, and his friends Bao, Dee, and Lester came to celebrate with us. We played Cards Against Humanity while having a sort of candlelit dinner. (:
I am full of gratitude. I am blessed to be where I am now, I may have slacked a little on some things but this gave way for me to have the opportunity to do things that I have only dreamed about: make music, have an art studio, go to music festivals, attend free events where I meet different people and learn a bunch of stuff from playing a board game to social media management, and to volunteer. It is amazing.
I may have the occasional depressive mode because of missing my family and friends in the Philippines so badly. But fixing my perspective never failed to make me realize how much of a blessing everything is right now. (1) Finished my Master’s degree, (2) got engaged to an amazing man, (3) I realized I am actually semi-retired before turning 28, and (4) I have a studio to make art and music. How crazy-awesome can that be?
