It doesn’t really feel like it. I still feels like I’m 25 years old. lol Has anyone ever had that feeling when a birthday comes around?
I have to say that the week of my birthday was a blast! I will definitely remember it for years to come. I mean it’s not everyday that you get to go do something special for your birthday especially when going to Walt Disney World. That was where I was heading with my family. What was even great about it was my sister is attending there as a cast member (she has a Disney Internship), and we managed to get guest passes for all four parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios).
Going to each park was a bit of a nostalgic trip for me. However, new memories flood in replacing the old ones since there is always something new to experience at Disney World. Even now do I want to work for one of the parks, particularly at Hollywood Studios. lol
We all did the majority of the rides that all the parks offered save for Splash Mountain (didn’t have the energy to ride it then). The biggest surprise out of all that we did was the revamped Star Tours. I ended up riding it three times since they have it to where no one ride feels the same. After seeing the direction Disney went with in Star Tours, I feel more confident in how they will go about with Episodes 7, 8, and 9. Bold of me to say, I know, considering that I’m a Star Wars fan. lol
I know I could go on into super detail about how my trip went, but I’m not that great in telling such things. ^^; I will say that I finally got to see Captain EO for the first time at Epcot, and it was a lot of fun to watch. Now I have that entrance music stuck in my head. Very soothing. =P
Speaking of Epcot, I never really cared much for the park, but it grows on you over a period of time. It’s mostly because you are not there for the rides as you are there to appreciate its World Showcase. It was unfortunate that we never got a chance to take the time to browse around what other cultures it offered. However, I did manage to browse through the Japan showcase and what its gift store had to offer. So many good things I wanted to buy…
I did actually buy stuff during my visit to the Disney World parks. It was mostly pins featuring Disney characters and the attractions I went on. lol I even bought a sketch featuring Robin Hood, and it’s really awesome to look at in person! Thinking about it makes me want to actually draw Robin Hood as a Jedi Knight. =P It’s so going to happen!
On the day of my birthday, my sister got me another Robin Hood sketch and gave me a pin saying “Happy Birthday Eddie.” So when I walked around the park, there were Disney cast members and a few of the guests at the park wishing me a happy birthday. It made me feel like I was a somebody that day. So that is why this particular birthday week will be remembered apart from me going to Puerto Rico for my 25th. *nods*
And what’s a birthday without awesome birthday presents? First off, I did receive a 500 GB HDD for my PS3 thanks to HartKnight. I’ll have to look into backing up the data on my PS3 so I can move them all to the new HDD. It may have to wait until I meet up with the friend I bought the PS3 from. He has an account on there still, and there were several games he shared with me that he’s bought on his account that I am not sure if I’ll still be able to access them. ^^; When I find time, I’ll be sure to research on it. Plus, I may need a bigger USB thumb drive if I want to do a backup utility from my system. ^^;
Another mention I should give out is to Usagi. I haven’t received it yet, but I’m sure when my mom comes by the apartment next weekend I will know what it is.
A couple more mentions to go, and they involve art! The first one comes from CinnaTree.
And finally, pieces from my lovely girlfriend, Aimee. ^^

Anyway, I want to thank any and all that wished me a happy birthday! It was a great one, and I am very thankful to have come this far in life. ^^
You all have a good one and take care!
