Yes! You read that right! It my Birthday Week!
OK, so technically my birthday already went. Yesterday, to be precise. I’m a scorpian. I was born on October 24, 1991. That makes me 27 years old as of yesterday. But trust me, I don’t feel 27 at all. I don’t feel a day over 80. For real. I wish I could retire already.
Yesterday was a good day. I worked for nine hours, and then hung out with people I love. Didn’t really celebrate in any way, because I’m waiting for the weekend to do that with friends and family. A birthday in the middle of the week kinda sucks.
Anyhow, let’s move on to the main topic of this post. The TMI (too much information) Tag. Now, that’s a bit of a lie. I won’t be revealing any information that may be considered ‘too much information’, coz as you now I’m a pretty private person. But since this a new day and I’m a year wiser, I thought I’d share those things which I don’t mind sharing publicly on the Internet for anyone and anyone to read. You would have thought I learned my lesson from previous posts, such as the 25 Question Tag, or the three instalments of the This or That Questions Tag. But this just goes to show you how brave I’m trying to be. Yes, I’m brave. I’m 27, I feel 80, and I’m brave.
