My Heart is Full

I celebrated my birthday four times this year with different people.

1st time

  • Taiwanese restaurant
  • My Hero Academia movie in theatres
  • bubble tea
  • my friend paid for everything – thank you
  • got Detective Conan cosplay, wig, wig cap, Oscar Wilde’s Happy Prince book, metal straws (including bubble tea straw), metal straw cleaner, card – in Kaneki bag

2nd time

  • Japanese restaurant
  • got Kumamon plush, hand cream that smells really good, postcard
  • getting Osamu Dazai’s No Longer Human book

3rd time

  • hot pot
  • got mustard cardigan, super soft hoodie, concealer, letter


  • first class was cancelled – I slept in and watched anime in bed
  • birthday wishes on social media, in person
  • free matcha lemonade drink from Blenz
  • gifts from parents and brother
  • getting free bubble tea from Pearl Fever
  • I ordered gifts for myself – cosplay stuff

4th time

  • Korean bbq buffet – thank you friends for treating me
  • friend picked me up and dropped me home
  • got Charmed Aroma candle with ring inside, homemade cupcakes, hand cream that smells really good, false lashes, lip balm, card
  • got necklace, strawberry matcha tea, glasses for cosplay, face masks, nose mask, lip mask, card

I also found out this morning that I won BiblioNyan’s giveaway!

I’m writing this post for myself, for my future sad days. When I feel sad, I can read this post and remind myself that I am lucky to have good people in my life. I tend to forget a lot of the things that people do for me.


I wonder if I deserve all of this. I’m struggling with this because I am no one special. I’m not used to this much kindness in my life. I’ve written before that I had a lonely childhood.

Thank you everyone. I hope that I am treating you with as much kindness. I don’t think I am, but I’ll improve on that. Maybe I am too harsh on myself, but these are my true feelings.

  1. Looks like you had a truly amazing and wonderful birthday! To have been able to celebrate it four times, and with so many special people is truly a gift๐Ÿ˜Š And yes you are too harsh on yourself๐Ÿ˜‰ The only reason that people are treating you with so much kindness is because you are special and a post like this only proves that. So, try not to struggle too much if you can, but just enjoy it๐Ÿ˜Š Hopefully you will have many more birthdays like this one, because you deserve it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. You deserve all of this and more – it’s not easy to show yourself kindness and accept that you are in fact special as the wonderful individual that are you, but hopefully that will come in time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY and keep being awesome. You are loved, you are worthy. Remember that ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. If your friends are treating you this well, Rose, then it’s probably because they truly value spending time with you. And very few of us like hanging around those who bring us down. So chances are that you’re a positive influence on your friends, and that you are treating them with kindness.

    That said, there’s always room for more kindness!
