You’re finally 22 years old! WOW! I’m not a cougar anymore!!!
Although, there are only 6 months between our age gap, that to me feels like 6 years. In our world, I often behave like the younger one who always gets into trouble and throws little sissy fits here and there – while you continue to carry yourself with so much intelligence, patience, and maturity. You’re truly amazing for your age.
At 22 years old, you had already accomplished so much. You’re already working as a revenue manager for a big company, while still in your 3rd year of university. You’re such a diligent and hard-worker, which is why you deserve every success that comes your way. You’re the backbone of your family, a great leader to your basketball teammates, a smart person whose GPA may be slightly better than mine, and your sarcasm makes you a great and fun friend. You have plenty of great attributes, but above all, you’re the most loving and caring boyfriend a girl can ever have.
At this point, I’ve been lucky enough to get to know you. I learn so much from you, yet you’re younger than me… It’s true what they say, maturity doesn’t come from age, it comes from the core of one’s being.
Jason, thank you for being the best boyfriend. For being so patient, so understanding and so mature. Thank you, for loving me even though I’m drunk at 3:00 AM or when I’m stressed over midterms. Thank you, for editing my papers, reading my assignments, and even doing some of my homework for me. Thank you, for making my life a little easier. Thank you, for being so kind to my family and treating my family like yours. Thank you, for trying to influence me to be a better person. Thank you, for being born.
I may be a little dramatic at times, and my “extraness” may get in the way sometimes… but one thing is for sure, the Dezleigh today wouldn’t be as special if there wasn’t a Jason supporting her. For that, all I can say is, thank you!
You’re probably in tears by now…. which is totally fine, because if this didn’t make you feel teary-eyed then these photos will:
Happy, happy, happy 22nd birthday Langga!!!! I love you so much and I can’t wait to make more memories with you!
