April 11, 2014 – Kickin’ Off the Birthday Month

So, as per usual, before getting to the actual point of this post, I will go and rant a little…

I was actually itching to update the blog since last month, where I had plenty of time after graduation and the school year were officially over. Problem is, there was nothing to write about! No recent travels, no special events, no sad happenings to make me go all emo on the blog – nada. But then April came around, and for me, that’s when things start getting interesting!

First of all, it’s the birthday month for my dad and I… and our D-groups went ahead of us and organized a semi-surprise party/gathering for all of us. Good food, good people, good conversation – what’s not to love?

DSC_9527Yeah, that was how prominently my age was displayed. :/

Some people went up front to give messages, and our Uncle Tommy had this particularly funny incident where a certain balloon just wouldn’t leave him alone…
