Long time no post. I apologize for my absence; first, I was busy with school, and then I was busy helping my parents with their business over the summer. Now, I’m applying for jobs and trying to save money for either a) graduate school, or b) language school. I’m thinking of moving to Japan to take language courses, and then possibly graduate school, but I haven’t really decided yet.
Anyway, I went to Las Vegas during the middle of September, and I turned 21! I also caught something on the plane, so I was cranky for most of my birthday, but honestly looking back I feel like I’m typically sick on my birthdays. When I turned 18 I had the flu, and same for 20. Last year I had a nasal infection, so that was great (off topic, sorry xD).
We were in Vegas for a week, and we spent most of it in the residential areas, because we were staying with my mom’s high school friends. Plus, I’m pretty sure this is my 4th or 5th trip, so I’ve seen the strip a lot and I wasn’t feeling the best, so I was happy with a chill visit.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures this time either, I mostly took food pictures. We had a Filipino party, because my mom and her friends are from the same Province in the Philippines, so as per usually they had to mark the occasion with food. I also drank a lot of cheap wine, and had a great time.
On my birthday, September 13th, my parents offered to take me to a bar, but we ended up going to Chowking and eating Halo Halo, because I’m so vanilla and didn’t want to go to a bar. Plus Alaska doesn’t have Chowking, and it’s like my favorite fast food restaurant!
I also shopped a lot. Which (honestly) was the main reason why I went to Vegas, to spend all my money on handbags! LOL
We eventually made it to Fremont Street
And I actually really had fun, oh! And I was finally old enough to play in the casino. I had fun playing the slots, I didn’t win anything, but it was fun none-the-less!
Anyway, I made it home, slept for two days, and now I’m applying to all the jobs I can. I expected to experience more anxiety now that I’m 21, and not following my intial plan of leaving the states immediately after graduation, but I realized I need money to leave, so I’m going to work to pay off my debts, and then possibly leave next summer or fall~
So, to end, I shall share a song. IU’s 23! 23 is actually 21 (or 22 depending on the month you were born) international age (look up Korean ages if you’re confused lol).
I remember thinking that 21 was so far away when IU released the song, but now I’m here, and I really do relate to her lyrics.
“I’m twenty three
I’m a riddle (Question)
Try to guess the answer”
“Cunning twenty three
Still long way to go, girl
If I pretend to be immature
Please be fooled roughly”
“I, yes, like now for sure
No, frankly speaking I wanna give up
Oh right I want to be in love
No I rather make money
Try to guess”
Ah, the confusing days of our youth. But, I think, I want to make money 😂
