Ooooh Sweet Sixteen! Do I feel any older? No. Any wiser? No. I’m pretty much still me. But my birthday was fabulous nonetheless and I am so thankful to all my friends and family who made it so wonderful. If you’re interested, here’s how it went:
June 9th: My actual birthday. Second to last day of classes before final exams. Spent the first hour of my special day finishing my english final paper, but even through the stress my birthday was properly celebrated. What I mean by that is, we had cake and presents.
My mom made me my favorite birthday cake: strawberries and cream. It was delicious and utterly gluten-free.
The best cakes are not always the prettiest. I mean, look at all those strawberries. Yum!
June 14th: My birthday party day. I survived finals and was relishing the first few days of summer. To celebrate, some friends and I attended a cooking class in San Francisco where we rolled sushi.
And for those who aren’t a fan of raw fish, we made the best chicken teriyaki I’ve ever tasted. It had ginger in it. Whaaaaaaatt?????
Afterwards, we floated around paddle boating in Golden Gate Park. It was definitely one of the top 2 birthday parties ever, right after the Little Mermaid themed one. And yeah, I know this is a little late. But when have I ever done anything on time?
