My birthday was on Tuesday (1/5). A few days before, I was having a rough time about it and seriously didn't think anyone would remember or even know. I was also feeling down about a few other things so I was already planning to be miserable on the day of.
Somehow, the night before it changed a little. I got an email for a free drink from Dunkin' Donuts. I never get to use these up and they usually end up going to waste. But this time I would be working on my birthday so I finally got my chance to!
I also decided that if I had to work that I might as well look hella cute.
I was really happy with how my make came out. I've been following a little tutorial from EGG by none other than the Amekaji queen Kanako-chan~
I used Twinkle Lash for top and bottom lashes ♥
I got my free coffee and also purchased a toasted bagel with cream cheese. It felt so great to just be paying 3USD$ for a whole breakfast! I made my way over to work and that's when all the birthday wishes started pouring in. Many of them online and a bunch at work. I even got a bunch of texts from friends and family!
Throughout my whole shift, I noticed that a few of my coworkers were acting
kind of funny...
And it wasn't until a bit later that I realized they had snuck in a cake! They hit me with a Happy Birthday surprise in the breakroom. I almost broke down crying. I really wasn't expecting any of it and it was so awesome to feel so appreciative and grateful to have such amazing friends.
After hanging around for a while after my shift, I finally decided to go home. I was going to buy a Loungefly bag that I had seen in one of the nearby stores but I wasn't so much in love with it as I thought to justify the price. So I left. Which is fine. It wasn't necessary. I'll look around online and wait for sales~
My mom came home with a cake and family sang happy birthday. We even ordered a pizza for dinner. Most of the time was being on the phone getting birthday wishes and hanging out on Discord where I received amazing fanart and played video games all night!
I also got some other goodies that I would like to also show on my blog another time if anyone is interested~
It was so much fun. It was the best birthday I had in a long time. And it wasn't anything crazy. It was just a special time with the people I care about!
