Someone Turned 23

Yes, someone has definitely turned 23 but that someone is still in denial. His “freaking out” phase is starting to creep out on him slowly as he types this post. That someone didn’t do too much that day either. He found out that most of his friends have left to Orlando for some stupid Kuwaiti student convention, so he called as many friends possible who are still in town, and threw himself a dinner party. At that point, he wanted to hang himself because he thought that was the most pathetic thing a person could ever do, but his mom’s words lingered in his mind that she has saved a special present for him when he comes back to Kuwait this summer. He postponed his own execution.

When his friends asked him where he would like to go for a dinner party, he immediately thought of BJ’s Brewhouse. It’s not the best place ever but he didn’t want to be a burden on his friends and take them to an expensive restaurant. On top of that, he was craving pizookie (a warm cookie topped with a scope of vanilla bean) all day long, so he thought that if he couldn’t satisfy his birthday’s wishes, he might at least satisfy his hunger.

In the end, that someone (miraculously) had a great time and he thanked his friends from the bottom of his heart. Now, he’s depressed again that he has 7 years left to be turned 30, and that thought alone scares the bejesus out of him.
