my birthday July 7, 2009

Posted by AnnaTheRed in Everything else.

I’ve missed posting on my blog past weekend. A lot of little things happened last week. Like I mentioned, my company moved to a new office. I’m almost done decorating my office. 🙂
And July 3rd was my birthday! I’m one year older than I was a couple of days ago. Yaaaaaaay! 😛 To me, age lost its significance after I turned 21 (20 in Japan) so much that I sometimes I forget how old I am. I once didn’t realize that I had been telling people I was one year older than I actually was for half an year. Still, I do like birthday gifts. 🙂 My boyfriend surprised me with a very unique and special gift this year! I’m so excited but I can’t write what it is just yet, but I’ll blog about it later. We didn’t have to go to work on my birthday, so we finally went to see “Drag Me to Hell” and ate ramen at Minca for dinner. 😀

On July 4th, we went out to get a shelving unit, and a strawberry short cake (for my birthday) at Veniero’s, and got plants at the farmer’s market in Union Square. My boyfriend cooked burgers for dinner and we watched fireworks on TV. Lazy and mellow that exactly the way I’d like to spend my July 4th.

July 5th was my friend’s baby’s birthday party at a park. It was a beautiful day. We ate ice cream and played with a hula hoop. As a matter of fact, we were both enjoying the hula hoop so much that my friend gave it to us when we left. It’s a really good exercise and fun too. We’re gonna play hula hoop at least 10 minutes a day. Well, I’m going to “try” to play. I can’t even keep it going for more than a minute right now… but I’m going to keep trying hula hooping!

I’m glad you had a good birthday!

I also learned Nihongo via the series with Biji-san heh. At the end of the year we made a shirt with a list of things “we learned from Biji-san” which was a list of crazy sentences about him and his friends in class…

Happy Birthday a few days late! I was so bummed the year I turned 39, until I realized I was actually turning 38, not 39. Oddly enough when 39 came for real I didn’t mind at all 🙂

Happy Belated Birthday. I also just recently rediscovered the hula hoop, it’s alot of fun and more of a workout than most people think. Check out SaFire on youtube to learn some neat tricks.
