Yesterday's Quarter of a century.

So it seems I turned 25 years old yesterday. I enjoy it very much when it's someone else's birthday, but for some reason was never too crazy about mine. It's not that I have an issue with growing old (though 25 is pretty intersting :S) but I just don't like that there's this one day when everyone has to celebrate your birthday, I don't know what that feeling is, but anyways.
Still Friday night my friends threw me a surprise birthday gathering!... it was a small group, and Some people I wasn't expecting to see were there, which was an amazing surprise to me, and it was very nice. Yesterday I was invited by a very dear friend of mine to Maki. Delicious food as always, great company also as usual.
I'm not sure what to say about the way I feel, but 2 3 days before I was about to turn 25, I was thinking a little too much about whether I'm loosing time or not. And today, on the second day of my 25th year, I'm feeling pretty good, I think I've figured out what I've been loosing time in and what I haven't, and I think I'm ready for an intersting year to come. ;)
In any case looking back at the 25 years that passed, Here's en gros what it looked like:
1. 1981 : Born in Kuwait
2. ~1987 : Moved to Lebanon
3. 1989 : Immigrated to Montreal due to war in Lebanon
4. 1994 : First Kiss :P
5. 1994 : Became Canadien Citizens
6. 1995 : Moved back to Kuwait
7. 1999 : Went to three different proms, none were for my school (LFK)
8. 1999 : Started University in Montreal
9. 2003 : Fell in Love
10. 2004 : Graduated from Concordia University
11. 2004 : Moved back to Kuwait
12. 2005 : My first full time job
13. 2005 : My Heart Broke
14. 2005 : I discovered New Countries
15. 2006 : A year I learned alot about myself and the people that matter in your life
16. 2006 : I discovered even more Countries :S
17. 2006 : I turned 25 :), It's a New ME :P (lol maybe, I don't know, we'll see)
