Last night I came home around 8.45, was in a meeting until then. I was gonna go straight to bed but as usual I ended up doing some more work. I’m not writing this for you to feel sorry for me or praise me because I know we all do it. But when your dad starts warning you that you work too much and should at least have a weekend a month to rest, then you know it’s serious. I usually never spend a weekend at home, and this one is no exception. BUT, this is not a working weekend instead I get to spend the weekend celebrating Azerina’s birthday with my sistaah, in Stockholm. I also get to see Ilke and Linda, who is in town from Sarajevo. One day I’ll write a post about Linda, my friend from Åland that lives in Sarajevo…
-We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young-
I’m spending this weekend with my sister and one of my best friends at her house. It’s her birthday tomorrow and the weekend is for us to enjoy each others company and to have a great time. Which I know we will. The beauty of being friends with someone is that they’ve been there with you through a lot, fun and sad times. They are part of memories that you cherish. Only a friends you’ve known for years can say ‘Remember when…?’ and in an instant you’re back to that point in life that seemed very distant at first but once mentioned you can remember it very clearly. You remember what you wore or where you were and what was said at that exact time. I’m looking forward to these moment with my new friends as well.
I went to bed Wednesday at 8PM or so, had a really bad headache and a fever. Woke up yesterday with a cold. Felt bad all day but in the evening I went to A’s house for a little birthday celebration. Forgot I was sick while hanging out with amazing people. Saturday is a do-over.
Since my birthday is at the beginning of the year and it’s always a stressful time therefore I chose to have my birthday party a little later than my actual birthday. I was also away for my birthday so this turned out perfect. This meant I had a few parties/dinners and I got to spend my birthday with a lot of people who I love.
But this weekend was the big party with all my friends getting together. We started at 7PM with a dinner and then went on til around 3.30AM I think. It was a great time, for me and all my friends. Everyone was in a great mood. The drinks were flowing, we we’re dancing and I was truly happy to be there in the moment with all the people I genuinely love. Some of them are new friends but when you see a guy that makes your friend really, really happy you can’t help but love him too.
Once again I’d like to thank everyone for coming out. Some of them had to travel a long way to be there. I appreciate it and the love I felt was overwhelming at times…
I hurried home from work to change and head out to meet up with my two friend. Two of the funniest people I know. We always have fun together. Lots of laughs. The choice of restaurant last night is something we can discuss. It was bad, really bad. And the waiters hated us. First we were hella loud and obnoxious, as usual. And on top of that, we stayed hella late. They were closing up as we were leaving. Tonight is a chill night and I finally have time to unpack. Tomorrow there is a soccer tournament, lunch with Nejra and a visit to my grandparents on the list.
You can never have enough perfumes, I think. Therefore I have quite a few. A few weeks ago I was sent sample of these two perfumes among others and now I want them. It’s the Givenchy Dahlia Noir and Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline.
