How I Celebrated My 18th Birthday

Eight days ago I celebrated my 18th birthday, and so far, it was the best day of my entire life.

I started my day earlier than the usual. On regular days, I wake up ten in the morning but maybe, since I know that this is my special day, I subconsciously woke up early. I was so excited I barely got some sleep. Anyway, I woke up 5:30 in the morning, took a shower and went down to have some breakfast. Everybody greeted me, and everybody was up.

After four hours of conversing with my mom, we headed to our favorite parlor and had our hair done, our nails cleaned, had a massage and asked Karen, the make-up artist to pay a visit later that afternoon, in preparation to my debut party.

As we arrived home, I went to my room to get my blueberry. But I was shocked to see an apple mac book pro in a ribbon on my desk. I was so happy I screamed. My dashed inside my room and saw me tearing up. Upon seeing her, I hugged and kissed her to show my appreciation and love. After that I started reading the manual and browsing, I didn’t even notice that it was almost 5 in the afternoon. And so I turned my ne computer off and took a long bath.

Karen arrived at 5:30, I was already late for my appointment with her. Since everything was already ready since the other day, preparing for my main event wasn’t so time consuming. After preparing, we headed to the hotel and had the best day and best celebration of my life. What made so special is that everybody was there to celebrate it with me. And that’s all that really mattered to me. Thank you everybody!
