Today is my last day being 23.  I always feel a little shocked it's my birthday.  I remember when I was a kid, counting on my fingers and trying to figure out how old I would be in the year 2000 or what year it would be when I turn 25.  Where did all that time go?  It feels like I was only 19 and in second year of uni living in the grimey Totem Park dorms and having the time of my life.  I guess this is just a different time of my life; one in which I work 40 hours a week and pay my own bills and take care of myself.  Oh, how we've come full-circle.

This one really feels like it snuck up on me.  I have always had to plan my own birthday celebrations and this year is no exception, despite my whining to Justin.  I don't like celebrating my birthday before or after the fact but it's hard to do anything on a weekday.  I made reservations for 8 here in Kashiwa but everyone is done work, etc at 7 or so and they'll be late.  I asked Blake to find a place in Ueno with yakiniku tabehodai.  I have to call back and change the reservation from 8 people to 5 anyway, so it's not different from having to cancel it.  I just have to look up the word for "cancel".  

I got a card from Derek.  He always remembers the Hallmark moments.  I can count on him for that, if not much else.  LOL  Even though we don't get to talk often (and when we do it's not much more than rally's of calling each other gay and sluts XD) but I know he'll be there if I need him.  Especially for the birthday cards with heavily made up drag queens on them.  I should prepare myself for the flood of Facebook messages from people who are too lazy to open up a new window and go to Hotmail.

I should have accepted the fact a long time ago, that my birthday is at the most awkward time of the year.  In Singapore, half the time it was a holiday for CNY which was awesome beause there was a day off but not long enough for anyone to go anywhere.  It was during Reading Break for 4 years and half of my friends went home so that sucked.  Last year was alright but I got upset that the trains had screwed me over.  I did have fun though, I do recall that.  You can look back for yourself to see what kind of fun I had.
