I am Zhuoxuan (Ariel) Li. Greeting from North Head, Beijing. I am going to share with you a great birthday party I had at my worksite.
Last Friday afternoon, my company held a birthday party for whom had a birthday in June and July. Celebrating birthdays is one of the company’s cultures. They hold this kind of event every other month. It is not only a working break but a team building activity.
We ordered cakes a week ago, and I had been waiting for this event since then. The moment finally came, and everyone went to the big meeting room. We began with announcing birthday stars in these two months and I was one of the birthday stars. After every name, there was a continuous clapping and cheering. I was very excited and felt so involved in my company. All my colleagues sang birthday songs together, and everyone had their best wishes to birthday stars. I felt so fortunate to meet these friends here. This kind of event helps with team building, and I have received deep friendships with my colleges in the last two months.
This is the first birthday party I had without my parents and classmates, which is a special birthday party to me. It signals that I finally grow up and I am treated as an adult (because I am 21 now 💃🏼). It was such a relaxing and awesome Friday afternoon and the 21st birthday party.
Thank you for keeping up with it. Hope you enjoy.
