Salam and greetings to all.
I’m not a birthday girl type. In fact, I always forgot to wish my friends and family birthdays no matter how muchness Facebook notifications hit my phone up. Sometimes, without I realise, I automatically said ‘Oh Happy Birthday’ from my own mouth without post it on the wall of the birthday’s babe. It just so random.
The last time I celebrated my birthday is when I was 9. So childlike, naive, and silly girl who compelled her parents over and over to let me celebrate my birthday, invited some neighborhood kids around my house. I know my parents were annoying with my stubbornness. I still do remember my cake (strawberry cake hurmm), what I got for my birthday and so on. It really memorable and funny at the same time. Why funny? Because one of my friend and her brother gave me a 555 notebook and wrapped it with Fumakilla mosquito coil box TT_TT I can’t help but kept laughing with my sister. Whatever it is, I still love it. Using that 555 notebook, I can jot down anything that cross in my head.
And now, in a wink, I am a sweet twenty-six, though I’m not buying a sweet part :p. So this year’s list of lessons include anything that super real important because they’ve been essential to my personal growth. Without waste any time, here we go, the 26 lessons by 26 :
