Amy and Kirsi there, which was awesome because I would have ended up sitting alone otherwise. After that, I had class (Human Development) and then was just walking around until my work meeting when I ran into Cara (from work) again! It turned out that they were serving free hamburgers on campus for Homecoming week so we waited in line for that and got a free lunch! I like to say they were doing it in honor of my birthday hehe. Then I went to a work meeting, came home and did some homework.
Haha this is the funny part. My roommate Heidi was going to the grocery store to get some cake stuff because she said her aunt needed it for like a young women activity. So I asked her if I could go too, totally oblivious. We went to the guitar class that we're taking together at 6 and then we got back and SURPRISE! there were a bunch of people in my ward in my apartment for a mini surprise party my roommates planned for me! I had no idea it was coming! The funny part is that Heidi went to the store to get stuff to make cupcakes for me! Yeah, I had no idea, which made it all the funnier that I was actually with her while she was getting it. But I was extremely surprised and so grateful that they did that for me.
So you ask me now, after the long descriptions of my celebrations, did I have a good birthday? And between the weekend celebrations with my family and the day celebrations with my friends and roommates, I can definitely say that yes, I had an AMAZING birthday! Probably the best one ever. I'm sooo grateful for my family and how much they love me and show it to me. I'm sooo soooo very grateful for the best roommates ever. Seriously, if you think you have great roommates, you haven't met mine!
One year ago when I turned 19, I felt really lonely, unloved, and I even cried on my birthday (because I was sad). It was really hard. Well a year later, I'm 20, and I'm so grateful I went through all of that so that I could have the roommates I have now. This year, I'm surrounded by people that love me and truly care about me. And I'm crying. But this time...it's because I'm happy. :)
thank you so much to the best friends and family a girl could ever have!!! I love you!
