I’d like to start this blog off wishing myself a happy birthday, as it was on Tuesday.And then I’ll wish my birthday twin Will a happy birthday, too.
…And then the same for my bestie Konner whose birthday is today!!
And next but no less important than those above, I’d like to wish my roommate Ashley a happy birthday, because anytime any of her friends have a birthday, she claims it for herself and accepts gifts.
So I turned 22 this week, and it happened to be the first day back to school. This is the first year I’ve been in school for my birthday, to which most would think, that’s a bummer. I’d venture to say quite the opposite. Sure classes started, but the work load isn’t too heavy the first week of school. Everyone is around and hanging out. It has been a week-long party!
This is how it’s gone.
Tuesday morning, I woke up to this sign with a box of donuts and a birthday cup from my roommate Kassidy. She’s so clever! Also, she is officially a high school English teacher in the Independence school district! I’m so proud of her- she got the job and she’s barely started student teaching! When you see her on campus, congratulate her! Also know that she is Miss January in the Athletes of MNU calendar. LOVE HER.
Then I went to classes and was pleasantly greeted by my friends and professors wishing me a happy birthday! Then after my last first day of class, Konner and I got our nails done at Lovely Nails in Olathe! They are seriously the nicest ever and do such a great job! Highly recommended. Then, we spent the afternoon together until we went to Korma Sutra, which is my favorite restaurant EVER! Also HIGHLY recommended- Thanks to my roommate amazing roommate Rachel for organizing it!
Then me and 389 of my closest friends went to a bowling/laser tag/put put place where I successfully scored a 43 in bowling with my bestfriend Emily- yes. that score is between the two of us. yayyy
This ended around Midnight when we all came back to the dorms and ate ice cream cake from Kon-Kon! She got it Dora and Diego for a double birthday party!
Since then I’ve gone out to lunch with my friend Lauren at Spin Pizza, had Indian food twice more with my sister and parents, and pretty much have been living the birthday diva dream!
I do have to say, the best gift I’ve gotten has to be my new roommate! Kara transferred from Point Loma and was randomly placed in our room. Is it too soon to say that it’s love? Maybe. Does it feel like she’s been here since the beginning? Definitely. This is a picture which I’m sure she appreciates…taken as Konner and I hazed her and her boyfriend Bugs (also transferred- he’s a QB on the football team.)
Then last night began the celebration of Konner’s 21st Birthday! We started at Holy Land Cafe for a ladies night dinner, then came back to my pad to her presents and candy!
Over and Out!
