The Remains Of My Birthday
I promised I was going to come back with this right?
Well, if you missed that part, here is the gist, yesterday was my birthday and due to the tiredness and stress of the day, I couldn't give full details of how my day went, that was why I promised I was going to come back hopefully today for it.
Now here we go, are you all ready?😂 don't roll up your sleeves just yet, it's not something big or serious, just me doing my thing lol.
At exactly 11:59 PM when everyone thought I would be awake probably to wish myself happy birthday or attend and respond to people who would, this baby girl was already fast asleep. Yes to everyone's surprise I slept even before 10 PM, I mean you didn't expect me to waste the small hours I had to rest a bit after the day's stress waiting for what exactly? I could still wish myself when the sun is up and equally attend to my well-wishers as well.
So there! I slept, yes I needed it.
About 2 AM I was already up after having a few hours of sound sleep. And behold it was my day already, I thought of what to do at that time but nothing came to mind, I already missed a few phone calls from friends and I had text messages coming in for me. I thought of nothing else other than to first appreciate God for seeing me through another 365 days of my life. After that, I read a few messages I got and I made an update about my new birth of course, from that moment more messages came in for me. It was fun at first until it got way too much so I had to run back to bed which I did.
I slept again and woke up by 6 AM, said my prayers, and continued attending to calls and text messages until it was time to get out of bed and do my morning chores and routine (or was there really any routine for me yesterday?😂 I was fiddling with my phone the whole morning😂😂🤣 I am sure you know that feeling)
My immediate brother was the first person to wish me a happy birthday with prayers, followed by my mom with prayers too.
Then came my dad who asked if I was already celebrating my day with the whole house filled with the smell of fried meat and chicken lol.
Between 9-10 Am, I got phone calls from my friends telling me about the activities we were to carry out in school, we had no classes yesterday, what a blessing that was lol. Yes, our examination is coming up very soon, it's at the corner already so lectures aren't lined up as before so yesterday was really a blessing that we had no lectures.
But before I could reach the school for the said activities, the documents we needed for it was no more available so we were asked to come back on Monday. Using that opportunity, my school friends and I decided to sit out in one of the eateries and grab some edibles.
We reached the eatery and ordered shawarma, sausage roll, meat pie, and drinks which we consumed to our heart content.
After eating and cooling off, I placed my order for my birthday cake, I excused my friends in the eatery because I had to hurry back home and meet up with one of my friends who called and also asked to take me out too.
So off I took my cake home to meet my friend.
It took me about an hour to reach my house, when I got home, my friend was already in my room waiting for me. I rushed to the bathroom to freshen up and then changed into something else and went out with my girlfriend.
She wanted to sit out in another eatery as well and grab a plate of food for me but I told her I was already filled up from the first sit out with my school friends and besides I was already running late for another appointment with someone else, I told her she could just get me a plate of ice cream. So she went to a nearby supermarket to get me the ice cream, the biggest plate there was, I ran down the ice cream and I felt so refreshed lol.
I accompanied the ice cream with a plate of moi moi (beans pudding with egg)
After eating the ice cream and the pudding, I bid my friend goodbye while I went ahead with my last appointment for the day. I was going to meet a friend, who asked to take me out on my birthday as well. You know when someone is pleading to take you out? Then you should understand the person wants to spoil you real good😂 I mean spoil as in taking care of your wants for that day. So yeah, this friend is someone I met in the crypto space (how lovely is that?) One of the beauties of cryptocurrency, it unites and bonds people.
I met up with this friend who crowned my day with all the lovely things my eyes could behold.
I was taken to one of the most beautiful places in my town Tropicana. When I visit places like this, I imagine how heaven would be or look like 😂 don't blame me though, I envision heaven to be the most beautiful place any eyes has ever behold 😊
We took a little tour around the place. Though partly, the tour was also to find a suitable spot to sit. We took photos at intervals and trust me to take a few shots of the environment.
After which we found a perfect spot to stay and order food.
I was still filled trust me, so taking in more food at that time was like committing suicide, lol. All the same, I still got something to go home while the food went down to someone's stomach 😂
It's cool to watch someone eat, it's a good time to make fun of them lol, but believe me I didn't do that. I only remember to snap this after it was almost finishing, my bad! Lol.
Take a little photo tour with me, it was really such a lovely place to be.
While waiting, I got a phone call from a delivery guy telling me there was a package for me, at first I was worried cause I knew I didn't order for anything and I didn't know who could have ordered something for me. Could it be a mistaken number or address? All the same, it was really for me and not mistaken, so when the guy called again, I had to step out of the building and collect the package from him.
I only got to know who it came from when I got home and saw a little note attached to the package.
It was getting late and I was getting phone calls from home so I had to rush back since my family members were all waiting to celebrate me.
Dad was already outside when I got home, he asked about my plans for the night which I told him. My friend came to wish me for the last time during the celebration. The celebration started and my sister and friend joined us later.
Everything went on well and properly as it should be.
I was urged to cut the cake and the rest of the other stories that follows.
The celebration was a fun one and we had a really good time. I couldn't be less grateful for everything that happened yesterday and how lovely my day turn out to be.
My friends got me different kinds of gifts which I will cherish all.
I would have loved to give more details but I feel this is already detailed enough. And yes, I hope you didn't get tired of reading about my birthday celebration.
I still would love you to feed your eyes with a few of my birthday shoots.
In everything give thanks to God. I can speak and boast of the grace of God cause he made it sufficient unto me.
And don't forget to wish me a happy birthday if you didn't or haven't just yet.
Still your baby girl ;)
To my faithful readers and wonderful sponsors, my heart goes out to you guys. Thank you for making my journey here a fun-filled and exciting one. Thanks for trusting and supporting my work too. I pray that God bless you all real good :)
