You take a deep breath and you walk through the doors
It’s the morning of your very first day
You say hi to your friends you ain’t seen in a while
Try and stay out of everybody’s way
I’ve wanted to use the lyrics of Fifteen for the longest time ever (probably since I was 8 or 9!) and now I finally can 🙂 This is a late post but here are some moments from my birthday week!
Snap from YX, featuring the other third of the Tan Zoo.
I had three papers on my birthday – Math, Social Studies and History! Really haven’t felt more unprepared for exams before but I got through them 🙂 Not really looking forward to results though haha. After the exams, I went out for lunch with Diwei, Vicky and Chelsia, AKA KIWIcrew! We’re participating in Youth for Causes this year and we’ve been working really hard on our proposal this past week 🙂 Here’s what we had at Strictly Pancakes!
Yay KIWIcrew! Our YFC project is called Operation KIWI (KIDS Imagine | Weave | Illuminate). We haven’t officially gotten in yet, but we are in the stage of submitting our proposals to our chosen VWO and the YFC committee and we really really hope we can get in!!
Waited for YQ to come back from work before cutting the cake! I get Coco Exotic from Four Leaves every year because it’s the best cake ever. There’s a layer of crunchy stuff that I rarely find in any other cakes!
Nachos and Salsa yum
Lava cake after cutting ❤ I love lava cakes so much and this was even better than normal lava cakes! There was more lava than the cake itself haha and after eating this I was so sure that my 2016 cake should be a mega lava cake. Maybe like a volcano cake lmao.
Sunday! Birthday “surprise” from the cell hahahaha. Not really a surprise since we celebrate everyone’s birthdays and also because I was in the WhatsApp planning group hAHAH y’all are the best ❤ They got me a sleeping eye mask thingy which is a cute panda!!
I don’t feel any older than I was last year and still occasionally refer to myself as a Y2, but some things have definitely changed and I guess I’m still figuring out a lot of things! But birthdays do make you feel a lot more special and remind you of the people who love you and make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside ❤ Even if it doesn’t signify anything else, let it be proof that I survived another year and I’m still here holding on amidst the wild roller coaster of life!
‘Cause when you’re fifteen and somebody tells you they love you
You’re gonna believe them
And when you’re fifteen, don’t forget to love before you fall
I’ve found time can heal most anything
And you just might find who you’re supposed to be
I didn’t know who I was supposed to be
la la la la la
Your very first day
Take a deep breath girl
Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors
