"Goddamn it, I feel as if I'm trapped in a freaking daytime soap opera." - Me to Justin, 7th of March "Relationships, friendship, romantic, family, anything, obviously have their ups and downs. Without the 'downs', there's no way we can ever cherish the 'ups'. Right.. right?" - Me, 7th of March "At moments like these, I think friendship is the most important. TOMODACHI, BABY!" - Me to Chimari, a dear Japanese friend, 4th of March 6th of March was my birthday. So many things have happened during the past few days that I didn't even feel like blogging. So, I'm 21 now, and for the first time ever, I celebrated my birthday without my family.
