29 things I learnt in 29 years

Quarantine day 11: I’ve been told I have to accept the fact that I’ll be celebrating my Birthday alone in quarantine and it will be the worst Birthday ever. Well, let me tell you something… My worst Birthday EVER was in 1999, when I had to spent it in the shelter with my family, while the bombs were falling down on my country. And if you think that staying at home safe due to Covid-19 situation will ruin this day for me – you’re wrong. YES, I’m alone at home, and YES this is not how I planned on celebrating my Birthday at all, but that still doesn’t mean I can’t make the best out of this day. So, you better #stayhome #staysafe and cheer with me online!
