After talking about it for a few weeks it finally came, today is my birthday. I am officialy 14-years-old! I learned so much in the past 14 years and I grew so much from what I have experienced. Just a few years ago, I used to be that depressed and suicidal girl, now I am just gleeful and thankful for everyone and everything in my life. Sure I had my ups and downs, but I learned to overcome them and move on.
One of the biggest things I learned was to be more confident in myself and not care about what other people think. I used to be in my “emo phase” and I never thought I would grow out of it. I was so surprised when I realized that I didn’t want to be sad and sulk around all the time. After a few months, I found myself lively in conversation and was able to become friends with many people.
I used to be so self conscious, from my body to everything about me. I learned to believe I was beautiful, and I really think I am now. I am so glad I became more self aware and caring towards others, especially myself.
Yesterday, I was planning to stay up all night in hopes for no school from the snow, but kind of knew it wasn’t going to happen. I woke up at 4:30am, which is the normal time I wake up, but I couldn’t seem to go to sleep after that. About an hour later, I learned that we had a 2 hour delay. I was very disappointed because even in my bed, I felt like I was freezing to death. Anyways, around 7:30 I started to get ready by taking a shower and getting dressed. I finally left my house at 9:06 and started my school day.
Right when I walked into the school, I saw a crowd of my friends standing by my locker and a balloon floating right above it. They began to sing and I was overwhelmed with joy. They gave me hugs and gifts that could barely fit into my locker. I felt like the luckiest person in the world to have friends like them.
After all that hassle, I had math where I did a test and completely aced it. Then, went to English, where I felt completely confident in what I said, which isn’t normal. Later, band. Finally, French, our teacher gave us 3 quizzes at the end of classes and I was completely flustered because I felt like I didn’t remember anything.
School ended at 2:15, where I went home and spent the rest of my birthday with my best friend. I had a marvelous day.
I hope your day was as spectacular as mine. I love you all.
