It’s My Birthday And I’ll Cry If I Want To

I turned 28 on Thursday. I don’t feel much different, older, or wiser. But maybe a bit more dramatic as evidenced by my title? lol

But that’s always the case with birthdays as one gets older isn’t it?

It’s crazy to think I’m another year closer to 30. I never really had a timeline in my head of specific things I wanted to accomplish or do by the time I’m 30. Truth be told, however, I did have a general feeling that I was going to or should have more things ‘figured’ out in my professional and personal life. And I thought I would feel more like an ‘adult.’

And please, before I get any comments of ‘You are an adult.. house.. stable job.. etc etc’ I’m not saying I’m a crazy hot mess with nothing going for her or anything lol But obviously my mind is not in a place in life where I feel like the path I’m on is one I can continue to be on and be happy now and later down the road. But I also don’t quite know which road I should take that can lead me to any personal satisfaction. And maybe I won’t ever reach that point but I do want to strive for it. I owe it to myself right?

I do have to say I am blessed to have the foundation and core of a great family and group of friends that I know I can count on to be there along the way while I attempt to figure things out.

Boy, this post veered off from what I initially wanted to write; which was just a simple post about how I actually spent my bday lol It was a good, relaxing day with none of the above thoughts. I took off from work and got to enjoy a great (albeit overpriced) dim sum lunch at Tim Ho Wan and dessert at Cha An with my cousins having conversations that said nothing and everything at the same time. It was simple and lovely with the company of some of my favorite people in the world. Sometimes that’s all you can ask for and need in life.


Enjoy the mew life,

      we’ll figure things out together bae ❤

      the ice cream sandwich has hojicha ice cream and the 'sandwich' part was green tea rice cake (very strong matcha taste!) and green tea whipped cream on top. love the ice cream; not so crazy about the rice cake, it was really hard.

    Happy belated birthday, Wendy! Sounds like you had a great birthday. You get more confident when you turn 30. It’s a magical thing, trust me. ❤
