Mama, cold hearted child, tell me how you feel
Just a blade in the grass, spoke unto the wheel
Amanda’s birthday just passed, and it was the first time in years we were together for such an occasion. Because it had been so long, I decided to make this one particularly special for her. After my USMLE exam, I relaxed by working on my paper and, more relevantly, crafting a glass tile mosaic art piece for Amanda with the help of my mom.
The fun part was assembling the tiles, and the hard part was the grouting process.
I also managed to surprise her twice.

- I brought the mosaic and gifts with me from Louisiana for her, and devised a cute scavenger hunt for her a few days before her actual birthday to throw her expectations off.
- With the help of her friends, we threw a full surprise party on the real date. A rough start to the day went initially downhill as I had to delay and stall stuff for her to be on time with the surprise. She had not the faintest idea as she walk into her own living room and a flurry of balloons rushed towards her. It went better than planned.
Great surprise, along with an inflatable tiara that clearly fits on AMK’s head
