So now I’m 20.


It’s an awe to hit the capital two-O milestone. It simply means I have been living in this world for 20 freaking years already. As you get older though, i bet everybody would like to think they’re getting mature every day. And I like to think that too about myself. If I compare myself as a 20 years old with 15 years old Lorenzo, then I can confidently say I have mature a lot in a lot of aspects of life. Yeah, we still make the worst mistakes ever sometimes but that’s exactly how maturity is. You make mistake, you learn from it. You repeat it again, you’re immature. But, when you finally think hard about your mistakes, there’s no doubt there’s a sense regret inside of you which will make you wanna be better next time. What’s that? It’s maturity in my book.

Every single year, I do expect people to wish me just to see who remembered my birth date. Each year though, it still takes me by surprise of how I’m still gonna be touch and shocked by people’s word. Even a simple phrase of “Happy Birthday and MGBU (May God Bless You)” can put a smile on my face.

Some people expect celebrations and birthday surprises or pranks to be thrown at them. For me, I don’t mind any of it. I just like to be appreciated for who I am for a day. It’s nice to be able to re-connect with people who you’ve lost contact with or to bond closer with your close buddies. I’d like to give those who I appreciate hugs but I didn’t get to do that for this 20th birthday.

It was awesome to see how my facebook notification went into a frenzy from people I just knew and from family members back home and even friends who I never thought who’ve still wanna be in contact with me. It’s way more awesome to see people craft such long sms-es just to make sure they didn’t miss out anything important to wish me well.

The feeling of gratefulness boost up my spirit to be better for another year. It lifts my spirit up to be grateful to my ever loving God above who still prolong my life in this buzzing Earth.

So here’s to leaving the teen years behind and to look forward to an awesome journey towards eternity πŸ™‚
