The Promised 24th Birthday

Years and years ago, during my high school days, I promised myself that by the age of 24, I will be living in Japan. I just turned 24.

It was a wish that came half true at best. I may be currently present in Japan, however I am far from having settled down or even know for how much longer I can continue to stay in Japan. In addition, I am unable to live freely, constrained by many things. I am here but not here. Never had I thought my life would travel down this path.

As for my birthday itself, the day wasn’t how I wished it was. I wanted to spend at least the early morning out and about alone, if not the entire day. But things came up. The best I could do, was to buy myself a small dessert in place of a cake while indulging the darkness of night.

Much like my 14th or 16th birthday, 24 was a number I wanted to be special. But of course and of course, nothing happened. An empty promise, an empty birthday. But perhaps, one day…

23rd Birthday

Hey, today was my 23rd birthday.
I unintentionally woke up a little earlier than usual, like as if I was a kid on Christmas morning. While in bed, I checked my phone.

June 8th.

No messages.

I glanced over to my desks, not expecting anything unusual to be there but desiring so.

Nothing.

I took a deep breath and sank further into my bed. I have a habit of not getting out of bed immediately upon waking up, so this is normal. I dozed off again until I actually got out of bed a little later. -Continue Reading-

Happy 20th Birthday to Me

June 8th was my birthday. I’m 20 now; I have hit my twenties. I don’t know what to say, only that it feels incredibly awkward. In Japan, 20 is the age where you are considered a real adult, and I think there is even a special ceremonial day for it. It is also the age where one can legally drink alcohol in Japan. Of course, I have no plans to ever start drinking. I just drank coffee for the first time the other day and my reaction was “blah”.

So on my birthday, nothing much special happened. A friend accompanied me to eat sushi for dinner, which was rushed since I had to leave, then I had a second dinner, and that was about it. No cake, no gifts, no party, a day like any other. I was really looking forward to the sushi dinner and the latest episode of Kakumeiki Valvrave, but the former was rushed and the latter was released a day later than usual. I also would have liked some time to play Tenshin Ranman (since Chitose Sana shares my same birthday), but that didn’t happen.

I would like to use this chance to note that I hate the Happy Birthday song. It’s cheesy, dumb, and as negative as this is, I usually don’t have “happy” birthdays. And oh, I would have had a picture for this post, but I forgot to snap a picture of the sushi we were eating. >.<;;

Happy Birthday To Me (& 千歳佐奈)!

Happy birthday to me! I’m now 19! It’s a little hard to believe that I’m now 19. It feels like not too long ago I was 16. In fact, I don’t even remember myself being 17. I’m confident that this kind of thing will repeat if I don’t do something about it. It has made me realize that each and every year is one to be cherished.

On the morning of my birthday, I went out to the arcades with a couple friends and played the Gundam: Senjou no Kizuna battle simulator game. I played about 6 games before it’s time to head back and pack for tomorrow. Later in the day, there was a farewell party, after which my roommate left and I saw him off. Continue Reading!!
