Don't worry people, I'm not in denial of my age. It's more of a reflection; which is something that I usually do every year on my birthday.
22 has been a long journey. So much drama has happened particularly in this period of time that I think if my life was a primetime drama, it would win an Emmy :P
Anyway, back to reality.
Today is actually the day of iGames in Manchester. Naturally, I would have gone to the event where I would meet a lot of morale boosters which can give me some inspiration but instead, I stayed at home with medical books. I sort of promised myself that I shall not be enjoying myself until I finish my exam which will be from the 19th - 30th of November 2012. So, I need to decide which events to go to or not; and I decided to forgo this one unfortunately.
Currently studying Paediatric Cardiology -_-
It's not that bad. I celebrated my birthday with my driving instructor by having the final lesson today in which I PASSED the Mock Test!! Awesomeness! I called home and Irfan Wafi was the first to answer and immediately sang "Happy Birthday" to me. That was such a super cute moment; I miss my little brother so badly. I talked to Mum and Dad about almost everything that crossed my mind. I got a tart and a 2013 diary. And I got wishes from Twitter, WhatsApp, iMessage, FB messages and even a FaceTime call. So dear Akmal Aliff, just because they didn't pop up on Facebook, doesn't mean I didn't get any ;P
So thank you everyone for making my day :)
When you do get gifts from someone, try to make good use of them. Use the gifts for good things so that the giver will also benefit from your actions, inshaAllah.
And it was interesting to see if people would treat you differently if they knew your birthday, ihik2.
Just before I go, I have just one last wish, let's make dua for you and me, that we always be thankful for everything that Allah has given us ;)
Cause sometimes we (read: me) often overlook the blessings that were given to us.
Till then, my name is Adlan Wafi and I am now 23...
