My 24th Birthday

Yesterday was my 24th birthday. It was way faster than I would have liked. A few months ago, I planned to create a list of things that I have learned by now, but then I had a change of mind. I also made a scavenger hunt list for me to do, but I eventually decided not to do it, but I did keep the list.

In the morning, my mom forced me to eat porridge she claim was healthy before I headed out and afterwards she gave me a red envelope.

I had lunch at Cafe Rolle with one of my friends on my birthday.  I ordered the chicken breast sandwich, while my friend ordered the salmon sandwich. We also ordered the vanilla creme brulee. I haven't tried creme brulee before and I was expecting it to taste different and I didn't really like it although it does look great.

After lunch, I headed to the mall and because I really wanted to get Urban Decay eyeliner. I bought some a while back and I suddenly lost all of them and I really liked their eyeliner. I ended up getting a mini pack of eyeliner and a Ibuki protective moisturizer.

My mom bought me a cake. I was surprised because I usually ask her for it in my previous birthday, but this time she asked me and she got me it.

The next day, I met up with friends at BJ's in Elk Grove. We had to wait a bit since they were busy during lunch time and more of our party arrived as we waited.

Me and Jessey were the only ones to have a drink there. I thought my drink was ok though and not to my liking.

Half of the table ordered their own dishes and the other half shared. The half that I shared with decided on the bbq spareribs, fried calamari, and chicken wings. It wasn't until later that I realized I wanted the pizza.

Since it was my birthday, I also got a pizookie. As I got it, my friends sang happy birthday and I ate some of the pizookie, but let Eric finished the rest of it.

I was able to get a picture of all the guests who attended my birthday lunch. Next time, I will have my birthday gathering at a place with a round table because I like being closer to my guests and that way it's easier to share food.

I was surprised by each person that I got from each person. I was happy with the gifts that I got from each person. There was some stuff that I been wanting for a long time, but I didn't want to get it. I didn't expect to get that many gifts :).

Overall, I think this is one of the best birthdays I've had. I got a chocolate cake. I was able to have a birthday celebration with friends and got lots of gifts from friends.
