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.

Alpacasso, Chopper and Pokeball plush & Tokyo Ghoul posters were gifts in the past

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.

Fall

Fall is pretty cool because of 1) my birthday, 2) Mid-Autumn Festival and of course, 3) Halloween!

I got some cool stationary on my birthday. I love it because I am a very practical person. I want to be able to use all my gifts. I got other gifts, but they aren’t shown here.

Happy belated Mid-Autumn Festival! The moon was so big and bright yesterday. A friend gave me this mung bean snow skin mooncake.

21

I turned 21 years old on October 1! On the day before my birthday, I got my ears pierced with a friend. I got upper lobe done and it was painless. We visited a Chinese garden then went to my place for a sleepover.

All of my close friends attended my birthday dinner. We went to a Japanese restaurant.

Two friends surprised me with a cake. The staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ really loud and I was shocked! I thought it was for a different table.

You can see my balloon and a scarf my friends gave me. I got a lot of cool gifts! I honestly think that I have the best friends in the whole world because they accept me for who I am. I am a little different with the whole anime hobby thing. I act like a kid, and I ask a lot of dumb questions. They still love me for being me.

I ordered the Royal bento box.

I celebrated with friends, and I’m going to see some friends tomorrow too. If anyone is wondering, I got a gift card, a wallet, bath bombs, a Tony Tony Chopper plush, a sweater, another gift card, and a painting of Roronoa Zoro my friend painted for me.
