Mid term exams ended last week and the results began to come out one by one. My physics and math grades dropped and that’s pretty disappointing especially since I’m a tutor, but thank goodness the rest of them are nothing to worry about.
Even though exam week has ended, we still have quizzes coming up and assignments to submit. And the most nerve-wracking thing of all?? I’m turning 17 on on the 9th (it’s 3 days away!!) and my family will throw a dinner in celebration. We have been preparing for a few weeks and all I can say is I’m so damn grateful it only happens once haha. We have already booked a restaurant, found a dress (I love the color — it’s electric blue!) and printed the invitations. I only need to spread them to my friends.
But here comes the hardest part of event planning: guest list. I plan to invite around 50 people, 60 at most. (That doesn’t include my family by the way.) And I’m having trouble of choosing who not to invite. I mean, should I invite back those who have invited me to their birthdays even if we’re not that close or should I invite my former classmates who are also in the same class as me? And I kinda feel bad for those whom I often exchange greetings with when we pass in the hallways but eventually don’t make the cut.
Yeah. I think it’s pretty darn stressful so I initially didn’t want any parties. But one of my best friends says that 17th birthday is once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing, the age in which we are considered an adult in my country. So it’s better if I go with my parents suggestion and hold a dinner celebration. The dinner is still on the 17th but I wish I had a time machine so I can skip all the anxiety…
The good news is, next week we will have a few days break when we can finally rest and relax, even if it’s only for a short time. Well, better than nothing 🙂 My pile of books have been tempting me to read them anyway.
