ISS MA BIFFDAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!
9th November 1996. The day I was born. I was actually born at 3pm, which is why I waited until now to post this (& definitely not because I’ve just finished writing it…).
I’ve always been the kind of person that gets excited for their birthday, I’m just one of those lol. But you know what, as I’ve grown I’ve come to realise that age literally doesn’t matter. Like if you’ve been reading 1weekmary for a while, you’ll know when I turned 20 I was all like oh my gosh I’ll never be a teenager again and that’s so sad. And at the time it really was sad. But now? It doesn’t really matter I guess. So now I’m 22? Okay. Alhamdulillah for another year of life. In Shaa Allah I’ll spend it on the right path, doing what I’m supposed to be doing.
In the past year of my life, I’d say my biggest accomplishment had to be graduating alhamdulillah. And one of my biggest downfalls/lowest moments had to be the situation with my dissertation, but I can’t complain! Alhamdulillah I got my degree in the end, so everything that happened happened for a reason.
I don’t really have any plans for my birthday except I’m going for a meal with my friends at the weekend In Shaa Allah. But today will just be a chilled day, I’ll (hopefully) get some stuff sorted for 1weekmary (& not waste the day watching YouTube videos…) & in the evening might do a little something. I’ve realised that for the last few years I’ve spent a lot of birthdays at work or had an exam on the day lol. Last year I was working in the morning and I was working on my 18th birthday, too. In high school I had an exam in year 9 (I think) & another in year 10/11. What can I say? It’s a popular day!
So yeah! I’m now 22 (which you’ll already know as I’ve just mentioned it all these times and it’s in the title). But yeah. What do I want to achieve in the next year? Tbh only Allah knows what will happen in the next year of my life. And In Shaa Allah I spend it working hard & being a good Muslim.
I know it was only a short post but thank you for reading! When’s your birthday? Are you excited?
Until next time,
1 Week Mary x
