10 thoughts on my birthday

September 28, 2016
  1. Why am I working today? Birthdays are for sleep ins and relaxation. When you work, it just becomes another day of the week. I snoozed so many times this morning, but surprisingly I still made it to work on time.
  2. Turning 28 is not a big deal. 25 was cool, and I guess the next cool number is 30, right? Should I be excited or terrified? I’m more excited I think. It’s a big milestone, and I think people worry to much about it. At the end of the day, it’s just a number.
  3. I wanted to scratch the scratch tickets my family sent me this morning. But it wasn’t my birthday in Sweden yet, so technically it would’ve been too early. Can I please win some money. Pretty please?
  4. I will eat whatever I want today. I kind of do every day anyway, but today I won’t feel guilty about it. I’ve had dumplings for lunch and this evening Jeremy is taking me to Ortega Fish Shach, which is my favourite restaurant in Wellington. Maybe even my favourite restaurant in New Zealand. I will definitely order dessert.
  5. Should I buy myself a present? I know I need to save money, but I feel I should treat myself to something nice. Maybe a dress? Maybe some jewellery. I went on The Iconic and found two dresses I want. Total price at the checkout – $220. Ouch. That’s with a 20% discount too. Might have to have a think about that one.

  7. I wonder if I’ll get any Facebook posts from people in Sweden. Or have they forgotten about me by now? I wouldn’t blame them, I’ve lived in New Zealand for the last 8 years, and I haven’t even been home to visit Sweden in 3 years. When you’ve been away that long, it’s pretty expected that you drift apart.
  8. It better be sunny today. Who wants rain on their birthday. I’m so happy that it’s light out later in the evenings now, so a bit of sunshine on top of that would make it perfect. Oh, and no wind please. Is that too much to ask?
  9. Why is my birthday on a Wednesday? So lame. Can we just make it so my birthday is on the weekend every year? You can’t really do much on a Wednesday. Well you can, but you always have that thought in the back of your mind, that you have to wake up early for work the day after. Maybe I should take my birthday off in the future, and the day after.
  10. I need to be in a good mood today. It would be a waste to spend my birthday grumpy. It might be a challenge. Some days you just wake up feeling a bit grumpier than other days, and this morning was unfortunately one of those days. I feel a bit better now half way through the day though, so I should be OK. Jeremy gave me flowers. That made me smile.
  11. My 30th birthday will be on a Friday. That better be a big party then. Or will it? It’s only 2 years away. I’m not sure I’ll have enough time to make that many friends in Sweden. I guess if worst comes to worst, I’ll just make it a small gathering instead. Those are pretty fun too.
