おたんじょぉび おめでとう ございます

9 Mar

Today is my 24th birthday here on this Earth but it is my 2nd here in Japan.

Weird.

For a few years now, I always thought that 24 would be a great age. Not too young, not too old. Oh man… so far 24 has been rocking or should I say shakin?

Here is a run down of the day…

First I wake up and it is nice and toasty in my room because I forgot to turn the heater off last night. (score!) I talk to my daddy on skype for a few minutes. I do my usual Facebook stalkin, blog reading and tweeting. Around 9:00 I head over to Ms. Daniella’s house for some muffins and coffee. There was an added bonus of Captain Crunch cereal as well thanks to Maegan. At 10:00 I come back to my place, play on my computer some more. I decide that I should probably get what I want to wear out incase I have to iron anything. I pick out a cute green dress and iron it. My mom calls and I talk to her and the family for a while. I hang up with them.

I turn on the water for my shower to heat up the shower room.

THEN

I walk back into my room. I stop and look around. I stopped moving but I am still moving. I look at my curtains and my mirror. Everything in my house is shaking and it is getting stronger and stronger. I realize that it is an earthquake and I lay down next to my bed for the triangle of life position. It went on for a good 2-3 minutes. It was the strongest and longest one that we have had since I have lived here.

I get ready for school and yadda yadda yadda.

At school I walk into the office and everyone yells “Happy Birthday”. I don’t know if it is just me but I always turn bright red when this happens. Also, when they sing Happy Birthday with cake. That was also included thanks to Becky Todd. (love her)

My children come and I get some cute cards, chocolate, and some awesome hand cream.

While I’m sitting in the office a mini blizzard happens outside. Holler!

After work, Maegan, Logan and myself head over to get some Indian food noms. Nom nom nom is what we did. Mango lassi, chicken curry and some DELICIOUS nan, oh and some free cheese nan. bingo! OH and since I am the birthday girl we went to Starbies as well.

On the way home we were driving in the Bluebird (our car) and Logan tries to stop the car but um… we didn’t stop. Thankfully the car in front of us moved so we didn’t hit them. It made a really loud crunching sound. Just imagine the sound of the brakes on your car about go to out… yah… that is what it sounded like.

Now, I am safely home in my bed, thinking about how marvelous it is going to be to go to sleep.

I think that by the way that my 24th birthday has gone, I think that it will be an adventurous year.
