I'm not really a fan of birthdays, I don't know why – I've never really been a fan of it. I've always thought that a birthday should celebrate the parents or at least the mother. Because I didn't really do anything – my mother was the one struggling and pushing for hours. Maybe next year I'll give her this card I just made.
|What a great birthday card!|
So yesterday was my 21st birthday and I was greeted by my family with two pieces of toast with 21 candles on it. Because we had a busy schedule to keep on my birthday, there wasn't really time to eat a cake, and because we don't really eat cake in this family, my mother decided against making one. I didn't mind that at all, since I'm watching my calories anyway. Since I was woken up with my family coming into my room, I was completely blinded by the candles that appeared to shine as bright as the sun. I had to close my eyes until I had blown them out.
I got my presents, everything that I wished for. Two books on screenplay writing and two books on directing. Because my parents are moving away in the summer, they bought me the cooking course DS "game." What I noticed then was that I missed the excitement of getting a toy or a game that I won't be able to wait to open and play. After I opened my presents and my parents and brother had left, I moved them to the side, took out my laptop and watched Justice League Unlimited while eating my breakfast.
The day did turn out very nice. I had a second breakfast in Munich with my mother after I had gone swimming. We then went shopping and she bought my two pants and a pair of shoes (I had needed clothes for the longest time, but I don't really like shopping.) Because my mother is going to see her very young "God-Children" this week, we went to a toy store to look for something for them. This is when I got excited. I found some amazing NERF guns, and started playing around with them. This 10 year old kid was watching me play and when my mother walked past she explained to him, "Today is his birthday and he turned 21." The boy got really embarrassed and walked away, but I don't see why. NERF guns are awesome. Either way, my mother wasn't going to buy me a €40 NERF gun, but I found Star Trek figurines next to them. They had been marked down from €12 to €3! I was told I could have two. I was happy.
After spending those hours with my mother I went to a café/bar to meet some of my friends from school. We had a great time and they gave me an amazing self-made card.
