Chapter 23, For Fabulous Dreams

“Mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall. Please tell me some secret this year.”

September 1st. My very special day in year. I am officially 23 years old. Been talking to my self (and yes to this laptop) about what happened this past year. Up and down, and what I already achieve and what I haven’t achieve yet.

September 1st. I thank you dear God, for making me see another year with this eyes, thanks for the superb gift of life. I’m eternally grateful for all the blessings that you have given me that makes me appreciate a good life, for the struggles you casted on me which made me stronger and helped me realized the ideas of life’s bitter sweet reality and most of all for the love which is supported by guidance and protection which He unconditionally gives through my ever beloved family and friends.

originalToday was really hectic yet stressful day at office. Deadline kills and I need to finish all these things ASAP. Being (new) employee means this special day would be turn super bored. No one mention this day was special for me. My best girl friend working as an HR Recruitment Officer (project based), she also gave nothing; no Happy Birthday greeting, hug, or even sweet smile.

Right before lunch break, my Supervisor called me and gave judgement about my work performances. I was scared yet worry why he had to call me this second. I mean, the review of work performance should be on December. And yes, so happy that the Human Resources team came to the room and sang plus bring the lemon birthday cake. YAYY!! Thanks to my departmental mates for the severe beating I was given and staining of my well-starched and well-ironed white Shirtit shows how accepted I am to you all, I cannot but thank you all. Thank You so much for making my Birthday even more Special with all Your Wonderful Wishes.

I just realize that I am not a boy anymore. Have to deal with this situation; miss being a college student who can have crazy party on his birthday. I spent my birthday in office till 8 pm and arrived at my room like almost 10 pm. But happy, it told me how to be a man somehow (not going to explain it, lol)
