Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me-ee,
Happy Birthday to me!

Yay! 28!

There are some real perks to being born in December. It kinda sucks to get only one present for Christmas and birthday. But it's so much easier to take stock of the past year. And I get to share my celebrations with Jesus. How cool is that?

It's been a really incredible year for me.

I feel like I've come so far as a person. I've completed my second novel, and I have decided to try and get serious about my writing.

I'm getting better and better with my Japanese.

And, I think most importantly, I am finally beginning to understand who I am!

Today itself is turning out to be a wonderful day. Stayed up until midnight and started my day in online conversation with my best friend. And got a text from Prince Charming at 12.10 to tell me happy birthday. Then I went to the Kindergarden to do a Christmas lesson. The male ALT, Caleb was dressed as Santa, and Stephanie and I were reindeer. I was laughing at Caleb, because there's a hole in the butt of his Santa costume, and then one of my antlers fell off. He laughed at me and called it karma. So I went to kindergarden looking like the child of Alice the camel and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

Tonight, I take the train to Morioka, hang out with Prince Charming, then take a bus to Tokyo. I will still be celebrating my birthday in Tokyo, because it will still be my birthday at home, in Barbados.

I love having a 37 hour birthday! :)

Happy Birthday to me!
