There’s always a certain sadness when your birthday ends, yes? Or maybe that’s just me.
This day has been…quick. I spent a couple of thousand bucks already and I’m not yet done (my poor, poor wallet!) because I have dinner tonight with the family and it’s my treat. Then again, my birthday only comes once a year…and I haven’t done this yet.
This means I am going to need to be thrifty this month until my next month’s salary (a month away!), which, luckily, includes a bonus.
Anyway…this day has been great. A normal birthday, yes, and no surprises, but it’s okay. :) I spent the first hour in prayer mode again, and I love today’s readings, especially the first one:
“Here is my servant whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight. I have put my spirit upon [him]…I, Yahweh, have called you for the sake of justice; I will hold your hand to make you firm; I will make you as a covenant to the people, and as a light to the nations, to open eyes that do not see, to free captives from prison, to bring out light to those who sit in darkness.”
– Isaiah 42:6-7
Talk about affirming. :)
Today, I also subjected myself to some things I have never ever done before:
- Buy make up – Well, it isn’t exactly make up. I was planning to get ahold of my Body Shop birthday discount today, so I got my card and planned to buy this lipshine. I ended up getting a lipshine and a foundation, and…
- …got a make over. – The girl at Body Shop insisted on it, and I went back to the office with green eyelids. It looked nice, but I really don’t wear make-up. *shrugs* I like my powder+cheek tint+lip balm look. Mascara at times, but not always. Heh.
The only thing I regret not doing today is bringing a camera. :( I totally forgot. Darn it. I could’ve used Captain Tal, but I need to get a bigger micro SD card. Ohwell. I hope Vhong’s camera’s got some photos. Hehe.
I’m still at work, waiting for my family so we can have dinner. I still feel a bit melancholic about my birthday ending and all (no more license to be a brat heh), but it’s okay. I’m definitely looking forward to this year. :)
Thanks to everyone who greeted through YM, text, email, Friendster, Multiply and through the comments. :D
