I Have a Birthday


I don't know if anyone would be interested in reading this but here goes nothing:

Just like every other human, I have a birthday. On Nov 25, I turned 17. Yes I know it's december and blah blah blah but I still wanted to make a post about it! In the last 17 years of my existence, I've grown and experienced so much. I wouldn't say that my life is a drama series but I have had my fair share of exciting and challenging moments. Today, in post-celebration of my 17th birthday, I will list down 17 things that I am truly thankful for.

I am thankful for....
1. The adorable cake that my mother got made for me.

Yes, I know it may seem rather shallow but I think that it is important to appreciate the small gestures of love given to us. <3 Thank you mom for all the birthday cakes.

2. The friends I have.

This year, some of my friends gave me gifts and it just made me feel so appreciated. Sometimes we can feel like we are the "unimportant" one in our group of friends (or is it just me hahaha) but in these moments we realize that we are not. We realize that our friends love us the way we love them.

3. My family <3

I know that it sounds sooooooo cliche to say but I'll say it anyway: Family will always be there for you. Through all the ups and downs in my life, my family has accepted me. Despite all my failures, they have welcomed me. Even with all the bad mood moments, they have loved me. Regardless of the numerous number of times I've burned something in the oven, they have cherished me.  Thank you family.

4. The delicious food I get to eat

Oh thats right guys! It's not another emotional number! Hahaha Here at BCfactor, I like to keep things unpredictable. Everyday, I get to eat but on my birthday, I get to eat like a queen. Cheers to that!

5. Going to school

Oh! Yet another curve ball at you! (What is up with my humor today?) But yes. I am thankful for being able to go to a good school. It may be difficult but I recognize its importance. Imagine, if I never went to school, I may not even be able to write this post! Hahah but seriously, my education has contributed so much to my maturity and because of that, I believe that it SHOULD be under this list.

6. Youtube

Watching youtube videos has become a necessary part in my life. Everyday, I would look forward to watching another video (or maybe 10 videos). They give me inspiration, laughter, and relaxation. As an avid youtube-user, I feel like it is only right that I thank youtubers for brightening up my day.

7. My Siopao

It's really cheesy but yes I call my man: "siopao". Because he's chinese.

8. Korean Everythings

Yet another fandom that I am happily a part of. Though Im not as hardcore as some people I know, its still fun to have something to gush about with your friends.

9. Deodorant

Must I say more?

10. My amaze-balls sister

I dont know if she's going to read this blog post but I'll thank her anyways. Thank you Maxxy (nickname) for being the second coolest chick in the family. 

11. Economics

NO IM NOT TAKING UP ECONOMICS! But the subject has taught me so much. I don't know why but I feel like this is one of the subjects that I'll really use in the future.


Now a lot of you may not know about TMR so lemme explain. The morning rush is a morning (DUH) radio show featuring 3 funny/corny/bitchy people. It may be weird to some of you but these 3 people brighten up my day whenever Im feeling down or lonely. SERIOUSLY!! I could just waste hours and hours listening to these 3 people talk.

13. Words of wisdom from my father

My father is and will always be the greatest man everr (next to Jesus). Im so thankful to have such an amazing dad who knows exactly what to say whenever Im feeling down. He's my number one fan and my number one go-to shoulder to cry on.

14. Breaks/Holidays

Again, must I say more?

15. Internet

Yall are probably nodding right now.

16. Post-its

Because I would forget EVERYTHING without them

Seriously tho

17. This blog <3

AWWWWWW time to get more emotional!! But honestly, thank you so so much for reading my blogs (and making it to the end of this long ass one). Not only has blogging given me another creative outlet but it has allowed me to discover more and more inspirational people. To those who create blog posts, thank you because whenever I would see a new blog post from a person Im following I would just get so excited to read it! You have become my blogging role models. 

And to those who read my blog, THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES.(Thats right! All two of you hahah) It feels good to write and create posts but when you know that somebody is reading your baby, you feel GREAT. I know that I dont have a lot of followers and whatever but I dont care! I still want to thank every single human EVEN the ones who dont follow because because them I feel like what Im doing has a purpose.


What are you thankful for?
