ON TURNING 27

I just celebrated birthday no 27 on Thursday.

If anyone asks how it feels like to be 27, there's not much to say... I guess 27 just could put me in a position where it's more comfortable for me to say that I'm in my late twenties. And the scary fact that there's less than 3 years for me to hit the big 3-0.

Do I feel older?

As a matter of fact I don't. I'm still as nonsensical as ever (which I would like to believe is being young at heart!) and I can still pass of as a girl (according to a very nosy 19 year old temp we have working at our office) as opposed to a lady. Seriously, that kid is gonna get into serious trouble one day if he goes around calling everyone old. But then, I shouldn't be too happy... My legs hurt at the end of every working day and I'm beginning to find the need to sleep early to function like a normal human being the next day!

Well, it was not exactly a great birthday celebration... I was at work most of the day (and night!) and only came back at 10:30 p.m. I was too shy to tell anyone that it was my birthday to be able to run off early lest they tease me... and I pathetically cut my cake (upon being forced to) at 11:30 before I went to bed. The few good things that happened was I received my new laptop on that day which was akin to getting a cool birthday present (although it's from myself!), receiving sweet messages in the form of text messages, YM messages, emails and a good old snail mail posted card from family and friends. So in the end, I was quite happy.

Yeah, birthdays are happy occasions!

  4. Happy happy birthday! 27 is when things start getting good. You're at the age that what other people think doesn't matter, but young enough to still have fun.

  5. Happy Birthday... There's nothing like us people in our late twenties for moaning about getting older... there's something about that three-oh number that makes you think your life should be in order. Let's buck the trend and continue our childishness!

  6. Oh jeez. C'mon Terra. How could ya do this? Meaning, how could ya turn 27 and all without telling Prometheus? Look what you've done. Now he's gotta say 'Belated Birthday Wishes' instead of Birthday Wishes.

    Heppy Budday gal. Prometheus is sure that in some parallel universe out there, its still Thursday.

  9. happy belated....

    to work till 10.30pm on your birthday is quite pathetic though.

    and if you dont feel old... why avoid celebrating it on the day itself?
