I’m pretty excited for today! It’s my friend’s, Clarraine, birthday, and we’ll be staying overnight at her house. She just turned 18 today, and I made this for here. I don’t think it’s quite good, but that’s my first ever illustration. I tried my best, but that’s all I ended up with. :haha What do you think? You can greet her at her site, if you want. 😛
Probably the thought that really thrilled me was that it would be my first time sleeping over at a friend’s house. My parents were really protective of me when I was young, and even until now, they’d get mad at me if I got home at 9 pm or so, without telling them beforehand that I’d get home late.
When I was in High School, I couldn’t join my classmates when they go to pools and beaches because I’m not allowed to. Last year, my friend, Budyot, celebrated her 18th birthday at a pool and I was afraid my parents wouldn’t allow me to attend it, and surprisingly, they did. It was really fun and I loved it.
I lived a sheltered life but I’m glad now that they aren’t that tight anymore. Perhaps, they felt that I’m mature enough and responsible for myself since I’ll be turning 20 next year, but that’s just what I thought. Maybe they saw something else. D; People say that being old doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re mature, and just because you are young doesn’t mean you’re not mature, and I believe that’s true.
I’m glad they didn’t consider me as a “baby” anymore. I still can’t believe I’m leaving my teens phase. XDD I’ll be on the Chapter 2 of my life soon. I wonder how it’s going to turn like. 🙂
