From Veronika, Belarus
I was absent just for couple of weeks, but already missed you all!
New Year, Christmas... then there was my birthday and an exam at last...All this drew me in...
The most pleasant in this chain was sure my birthday and the most pleasant about my birthdays is that my mom and I have it on the same day :)
This time I was absolutely happy, because we celebrated it together at last. We haven't done it for 5 years since I entered university and went to Minsk. I usually had exams on this day or had to prepare for exams or so... and this year I got a chance to go home. So my mom got half-day-off too and we started to celebrate with champagne at 6.30 in the morning while seeing off my dad to work, it's a pity he couldn't join us and was drinking his tea. Then we went to bed and 2 or 3 hours later started our morning again, with coffee this time :) By the midday mom went to work too and I was preparing for a party, which was to be in the evening. So the day started quite unusually and ended quite traditionally. But the most important is that we were together. The next day I returned to Minsk and went to a café with my friends to continue celebration:)
So now I'm 23 and I hope this year will bring me harmony I'm dreaming of and happiness I felt on my 23th birthday morning will continue. This year I'm finishing my Master's course and then I hope to find my place in life. I wish this year brings to each of you all you are dreaming of too ;)
