My First Birthday (in Japan)

Hello! I’m sorry I took another break in posting…there’ve been about a hundred reports due these few weeks and the only time I stopped doing (procrastinating, more accurately) them was to turn 21.

Birthday in Japan

It was my birthday on on ThursdaykirakiraI’m most definitely past being a teenager now, which is still kind of sad but also weirdly satisfying. The number only gets higher from here on so I’m just going to embrace the whole adulthood thing, whatever that meanswaving

Birthday in Japan

It’s the first time I’m having a birthday in a foreign country (and right in the middle of midterms, no less), but having friends around me more than made up for it. They went out of their way to make it a happy day for me, and it was the best way I could’ve spent my birthday away from homeheartIt’s a good thing that I’m in Japan after all!

I mean, where else would I get a cake that looks like ramen? (If you think that looks real wait till you see their pork cutlet bowl cake)

Or a surprise at the end of dinner in a small cafe perched on a building overlooking Shibuya? They turned off the lights and played the song Happy (“it’s so nice to be happy SHALALALA”) while my birthday cake came out in this entire procession. I loved it all and I love my friendsheart

So I really am 21 now…but I don’t feel it yet so I’ll talk about being 21 some other time haha. But I’d just like to mention what an aesthetically pleasing number my birthday was. I’ll never get another 6.16.16 againneko

    Happy Birthday! I’m always amazed at how they make cakes that look like other types of food. Definitely fooled me.
