I completed my 20th trip around the sun today. It was an awesome day. The birthday wishes started coming in at 12am. Does it ever happen to you that someone calls to wish you happy birthday and after saying thank you it becomes awkward because you don’t know what to say next and neither do they. Well I prefer sleep over that awkwardness. The only thing that wasn’t good today was that a teacher was being rude to me (she knew it was my birthday). Life is too short to be angry at your birthday so I say ‘fuck it’ . I broke the record for most cakes cut on a birthday (5)😂. The day was full of laughter, smiles, wishes and love. So now I’m 15 years old with 5 years of experience. Dope!
Now when I look back at things, I realize how far I’ve come. Things have changed (in a good way). I remember the days when I hated getting up in the morning for school, but now I’m fine with it. When I drive pass my school everyday I feel both good and bad. ‘Good’ because I have left that godforsaken place and ‘bad’ because I couldn’t burn that place down 😂. I like how things are now and I know for a fact that they are just going to get better. Recently I read this uplifting quote “Let your past be your spring-board, not your quicksand”. There was a time when I couldn’t let go of my past but my life became much better when I learned from it and moved on. Circumstances change, people change, emotions change, YOU change. I know change is hard, I mean.. have you ever tried bending a coin?😂
Let me start off by saying that my drawing skills suck (This is coming from a person who’s career would be based on his drawing skills). Recently in college we got this activity where we had to draw the person sitting next to us. I knew I was doomed.
This is what my friend drew:

Don’t worry I’m improving! ☺️
I woke up to a few texts from my friends wishing me “happy friendship day”. I responded to them and then went off to sleep again. When I woke up again I decided to meet my long time best friend. We live in the same city and we’ve been friends for like 8 years but still we meet once a month. So I dropped him a text (still waiting for the reply😂), also tried calling him but he didn’t pick up. Tried calling up a few other friends so that I could go out with them and chill for a while. I couldn’t reach anyone. I felt a little bad because I had no friends on friendship day. So I decided…fuck em I’ll go out alone. I went to a bookstore, bought a book ‘Doomsday Conspiracy by Sidney Sheldon’ and then went to a nearby Starbucks. It was actually an amazing experience. I ordered my favorite drink ‘Java Chip frappuccino’ and sat there reading that amazing novel. After that I bought my favorite chicken roll and went home. To be honest I didn’t even feel lonely while I was there by myself. It’s true that we all need friends but depending on them is not a good thing. There actually is an “end” in friENDship but there is no end in java chip frappuccino. So choose wisely peeps.
Also checkout this message from starbucks that I received this morning.
Everyday I have to wake up at 7 to get ready for college. I don’t like getting up early but somehow I’m getting better at it. While having breakfast I always watch Impractical Jokers. That show always cracks me up. So after having the breakfast I drive to the college which is a total shit-show. A lot of honking cars showing their love for each other. After reaching the college I go the washroom to see myself in the mirror and convince myself not to punch anyone today. Classes start around 9 and finish around 5. We get long breaks between classes (sometimes 3 hours long) which is dumb. I meet and hangout with a lot of people. I also see the girl that I want to talk to but haven’t gathered the guts to. I also see the girl whom I was so close to but now we don’t even greet each other. It’s kinda sad but I’ve moved on. Somedays college is fun, somedays I just don’t wanna be there. In a nutshell it’s a wholesome experience.
I recently bought this smiley ball which is also known as an anti-stress ball. This thing taught me a nice life lesson. No matter how much I threw it on the walls, how much I pressed it, how many times it went under the bed (its pretty dark there). The smile never went off that thing. I’m trying to be like this ball. You should too!

I still can’t believe I took this photo (and added a filter to it).
