Hey everyone, today is Ana’s 19th b-day! I was thinking about just giving her a present and nothing else, but I think that it wouldn’t be nearly enough. So, that brought me here today. I’m gonna tell you how I met Ana (my POV ahaha).
I met Ana last year February, we had been having classes together since September but we never talked to each other (back then I was kind of an anti-social person ahaha). Anyway, we talked to each other for the first time on an English class, she started talking to someone about manga and anime, obviously I was like: “Manga?! Anime?! WHUT?”
Then she said “something, something, kpop”
Of course by then it was clear to me that me and this girl had to be friends! So, I tried to look very calm and composed and went to talk to her. We talked for a while about anime and kpop like normal people do when then talk… idk, about normal things? Anyway, everything was going well, until someone mentioned “Harry Potter books, JK Rowling”, the topic changed to books! I then asked very innocently (NOT!), if anyone had a goodreads, Ana answered yes.
Once I got home I decided to stalk Ana and find her Goodreads. I shall try to show you how I reacted I saw her read list:
Ok, so I could only see: “OMG SHE LIKES THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS, INFERNAL DEVICES, VAMPIRE ACADEMY, SIGNIFICANCE SERIES, LUX SERIES?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG, ARE WE SISTERS?! DID GOD SET US APART WHEN WE WERE BORN SO OUR PARENTS WOULDN’T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH TWO OF US?!!!”
Then, once we saw each other at university you can guess how our conversation went: “books, books, books, anime, anime, kpop, kpop” 🙂
After a few weeks Ana asked me join her on chibireader, I was so, so HAPPY!
Now here we are, after many book recommendations, feels over books shared, stupid dances together (us trying to dance like on kpop mv’s), animes watched, phone calls where we hysterically expressed our ANGER and LOVE over CLOCKWORK PRINCESS (Cassandra Clare, if you ever read this, just wanted you to know, I will never forgive you!!), I can only say that I hope we can be friends until we’re old and gray. I can actually imagine us sitting on a couch, drinking tea, you with lots of dogs around you, we talking non-stop about what happened on this book, how we felt about it and how excited we are about the next book coming out for sale … 🙂
Thank you for everything, but above all, thank you for existing, cause if you didn’t, my mom would still have to listen to me when I finish reading a book. I’m sure she is done with it ahaha
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR JAPANESE CLASSES!
P.S.: Ana, this Friday, your b-day party… just, well, brace yourself ;)) *evil laughter*
