iamamericaandsocanyou28 years ago i was BOBA (brought over by airplane). my (adoptive) parents always treated today like a second birthday almost. I view it like a second Thanksgiving. Usually I'd have a nice meal with my family and just be glad that I'm American.
This is my first full year away from my fam. My dad emailed me this morning to tell me he deposited money and though they're not there they still want me to celebrate. I was trying not to tear up at my desk.
My roommate is gone to visit his family for a week so it's unusually quiet. Jasan should be on his way over. He said 15 minutes about 20 minutes ago so he should actually be here in maybe the next 10-15 XD.
